Rant Rant RANT!!!  
Oh. My. Effing. Shit. STUPID DEATH CAB COMPLETELY SELLING OUT FOR THE EPIC FAIL OF TWILIGHT!!! GRRRR!!!!! ARRRRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! Now the fanbase is gonna be all wanktastic and emo!tweeny twenty times MOAR than it already is. However, if it's a Jacob song, then I may reconsider, but at this very moment? RAGE!!! I barely survived the overexposure from The OC. Arrrggggh!! GODSDAMN!

Speaking of sell out. WTF with all the KoL hate? I thought they got better as they progressed. Everyone's all OMG!COMMERCIAL!!! IMO they came out sounding 'commercial' and conventional a la Pearl Jam or The Strokes. I actually like them now. Don't be hating with your emo!hate. It's not pretty.

Not that I like them but I'm a sucker for stripped versions of EPIC!SOUND! and this was just yesterday and it sounds good not as good as KoL but still good...

But my fave so far, is this. Oh, CALEB! Gods, his voice. Reminds me of Levon Helm.

LOL! *iz amused by the mood theme* LMAO!!! Therefore, I'm using it, cos it SO doesn't reflect my mood at the moment but it made me laugh. Oh, Doctor Who...

I have all the KOL records and I don't think they have changed that much.

Ohhhh, I looooove the Paramore version. Thanks for sharing! She got a great voice.

I think they just got better at crafting sound from their instruments and heaven forbid anyone should get good at something.

She does have a good voice. That vid surprised me cos she sounds too much like an imitation of Gwen Stefani on all their recordings hence, making Paramore a turnoff for me. Yes, I've been told I'm a music snob. So this was pretty good.

Good song. ...is there a Sparky vid for it oh, keeper of the Sparky love?

Word. Word. Word.

LOL. For. Reals. Learn the lyrics dude. The only ones who make up for forgetting lyrics is Tegan and Sara cos they entertain and TOTALLY make fun of themselves for being douches.

Oh, Lykke Li. She's fabulous but yes, I totally agree. Caleb's voice is what makes the songs.

DUDE. Epic song is EPIC. She took my heart, I think she took my soul... Oh, the pain!

I've been avoiding Kings of Leon for a while cause the 'Sex On Fire' made it to number 1 on the Triple J Hottest 100 for last year, and I was very annoyed cause I thought it was undeserving compared to a lot of other stuff. I was rather resentful. But I have just started listening to them and liking it. Use Somebody is a good song. Someone (who happened to be a teacher at my old high school) did a cover of it at the bar I was at on Tuesday and it was good! And I'm really liking that Paramore version too.

I think I'm going to go listen to some more KoL right now.

Hehe, I avoid all things ranked and rated by the masses so I TOTALLY get that. Closer was on a mix on one of my comms and decided to check out the LP for it and I was completely surprised by how much I liked it.

Isn't it awkward to see old teachers waaaay after you've finished school. It's like omg, they're normal... Weird.

Ah, KoL is well worth giving a second chance. I'm glad I did.

Triple J is usually a pretty good radio station, they don't play much 'mainstream' stuff unless it's worth listening to.

Luckily that teacher wasn't one I'd actually had, just one that I knew of and a couple of my friends had.

I don't really have KoL hate (they're decent sounding) but Death Cab for Cutie is a lot less mainstream.

*rolls eyes* I'm the weird person who like death metal and indie stuff.
Sunny: Music TnS call it off and tied upsunny_serenity on September 6th, 2009 10:43 pm (UTC)
Oh, Death Cab... My boys. I just LOATHE when there's a popularity explosion for excellent things through such a shallow means. It's like, they're so much more than that point of exposure, you know? I get called a music snob for shit like that but, whatever...

WOOHOO! DEATH!METAL!! The last time I was into Metal was secondary school. I'd fall asleep to Kittie and Static-X in class. Now, not so much. I think I'm over my rage.

See, I was about to ask/point out the moodtheme (my thought, "O.o music made her horny? Whoa, WHAT?!") :-P But Doctor Who be awesome, so I get it now.

And Paramore cover = I LIKE!

KoL be awesome.

*pouts* I understand where you're coming from on how musicians sell songs through a movie that just attracts a crazy fanbase *le sigh* you just gotta... let 'em do as they will... ignore the crazy... keep the love.
Sunny: DW Fangirl Runsunny_serenity on September 6th, 2009 10:45 pm (UTC)

Like I was telling Kat. The point of exposure cheapens the awesomeness of them and therefore makes me feel like they TOTALLY sold out. Sad. It's like artistic merit/cred that indie bands work for is dashed by the cheapness of mass marketing. Sad. *pout*
