Sex is never *just* sex on @st_vincent's 'Masseduction,' which travels the path of seduction to its messy existential aftermath and how one can possibly move forward from that carnage. Read about it through the link in our bio.

Pearl Jam released 'Vs.' today in 1993 and set the record for most copies of an album sold in its first week, and then held that record for five years. Hell yeah.

What happens when you have the same name as a celebrity? @broadly talked to a dude named Nick Jonas to get some insight.

If you're just in it for a good time, who can blame you? @beck himself deliberately created 1999's 'Midnite Vultures' as something fun to tour, and he’s recreating that same psychedelic dance vibe with 'Colors.' It's pop to the core. "Up All Night," the third single from 'Colors,' is the antithesis of 'Sea Change' and 'Morning Phase': jubilant, excited and full of love, more about the butterflies in your stomach than a gaping pit. Whereas Beck once reveled in his sadboy aesthetic, he can never dwell in one period too long (he has to tour this music, after all). If he unabashedly made music about being sad, it's no surprise that he would also make music about happy. Plus, it always helps when you can dance along. For the full guide to getting into Beck, check out (6/6) 🎨 @tarajacoby

You're in your feelings. We dig that. And @beck probably would dig it too, seeing as he's usually laying out some bleak lyric when he's not singing about "discount orgies on the dropout buses" or making the "garbage man scream." Teaming up with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Beck toned it down 1998's 'Mutations,' the follow-up to his sample-heavy breakout, "Odelay.' 'Mutations' showed mainstream audiences his songwriter side, along with the producer chops they've already come to love. The album features a long list of musical genres—on "Tropicalia," it gets, well, you know tropical; on "O Maria," Beck adds horns and sings in the tone of a whiskey-swilling piano comedian; "We Live Again" takes you a magic carpet through dreamy '70s balladry. But the greatest example of Beck's introspection is "Nobody's Fault But My Own," which makes you feel a bit sorry for him. The song paints him as an isolated entertainer, squeezed of all his value and worth. "When they catch all they wanted from you / And they find that's all you knew / Pack your bags from another town / It's time to move." In true Beck fashion, he sprinkles in sitar so you feel like you're isolated in a foreign place place. (5/6)

You're a hip-hop fan, and while @beck isn't exactly the best rapper in the world, that's not the point. His midway decent flow is actually the reason "Loser" was called "Loser" in the first place. "I thought, 'Man, I'm the worst rapper in the world, I'm just a loser,'" he recalled to biographer Julian Palacios. "So I started singing 'I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me.'" He admitted that he tried to sound like Public Enemy's Chuck D. Going into 1996's 'Odelay'—which nabbed him his first Grammy (for Best Alternative Album)—he ditched any morbid songs he had left over from 'One Foot In The Grave' and hooked up with The Dust Brothers, who were known for their work with the Beastie Boys at the time. Inspired by Grandmaster Flash, Beck and The Dust Brothers had a wild time sampling clips for 'Odelay,' including bits and pieces of Grand Funk Railroad, Them, Sly & the Family Stone, Edgar Winter and more. You, the young, burgeoning Beck expert, will soon learn that Beck's mind is an absurdly diverse encyclopedia of musical influences, and sampling allowed him to piece his tastes all together in one place. It was strangely cohesive, and the 'Odelay' sound quickly replaced the Slacker Rock label he'd been plastered with. (4/6)

"Loser" was one of those freak tunes that had @beck rapping about "dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose" and getting "crazy with the Cheez Whiz" while sampling a twangy slide guitar and singing "I'm a loser, baby, so why don't you kill me?" in a lazy drawl. It had critics and MTV personalities crowning Beck as the King of Slackers—the "Slackers" being a group of Gen X-ers who were seen as chumps not willing to make anything of merit. They made him the leader of the disaffected rock movement countering '80s glitz. To that claim, Beck had his own thoughts: "Slacker my ass," he told Rolling Stone in 1994. "I mean, I never had any slack. I was working a $4-an-hour job trying to stay alive. That slacker stuff is for people who have the time to be depressed about everything." (3/6)

@beck pretty much has something for everyone. He started with country influences and ended up weaving in hip-hop. He was a huge Mississippi John Hurt fan when he quit school in ninth grade, and he practiced guitar until he could mimic Hurt's finger-picking style and took on a deep, laid-back tone in his voice. Beck's early influences were clearly drawn from the Delta Blues. But where do you start if you're into the folky guitar stuff? Try 'One Foot In the Grave,' which features reworks of Skip James' "Jesus is a Mighty Good Leader" and the Carter Family's "Lover's Lane." (2/6)
