    The Weeknd? Really? Lol This has to be a joke! C’mon KROQ! Play Young the Giant’s new stuff or that Tame Impala song ‘Less I Know The Better’ again that you mysteriously took off your playlist. Or Circadium Rhythm. But this? WTF

    This guy’s vocals are horrid and don’t belong on KROQ. Not even Daft Punk saves this song. Hope this song disappears quick!
