#5 ain’t half bad

Hey! Stereogum readers ranked Fuel/Friends as the #5 Music Blog That’s Not Stereogum. What a huge honor for me, to be among such stellar company on that list. A sincere thank you guys!


  • Well Done Heather. In 3 years you have become one of the most influential music blogs on the planet. You should be proud. What separates you from the rest of the pack is that your articles are well thought out and you write about what you like rather than the what is most popular this week.

  • I think you’re better than #5. You’re the first one I check when I get on my computer every morning (i.e. afternoon). Keep up the good work and thanks for doing it…

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
