That slowed down feeling sticks with you as you watch the video and see both the meaning in the lyrics and the passion behind lead singer Nate Ruess’ belting of said lyrics.

I don’t know who got the idea to contrast such disastrous images with this calm and soothing ballad but it sure makes perfect sense,…isn’t 2012 supposed to be the year of the apocalypse anyway?
It is a cinematic tale juxtaposing violence coming from human then nature itself, with a horrific development and an escape after the apocalypse. Or may be the whole thing was just a dream?
I always thought the song quite good. Which is why I find this jam session version so repulsive. The song and the band are very similar to the stage shown in this video. An overcrowded mess, like a dorm room floor.
not one hundred percent, but I’m pretty sure none of them actually play an instrument. They just stand around and sing. How bland.
The song shake “Shake” is a hot mess of thumps and bongo stuff peppered with some filth and a nice dash of Mr 305. This thing is six years old released in 2006, it never made it past the #41 spot on Billboard but what the hell do they know about music anyway?
an abstract experience going on the trippy psychedelic side, with a few close-ups of human and canine lips and wet tongues that can make you borderline uncomfortable
The duck lipped girls doing the snake are so bland and bored that I wonder if the band slipped them all ruffies to get them to even get on camera. The cheap location the repetition of the mundane track and the lack of testosterone in the vocal make me wonder how these guys still have a label.
it sounds like a cross between Matt & Kim, Jessie J, and Nicki Minaj; this is what Karmin describes as Swag Pop. Now, this may sound like quite the perplexing combination of sounds, and trust me: I’m not the biggest fan of Nicki or Jessie, but it is this strange sound that makes Karmin so unique
Jilted ugly broad anthems. Something for the sniveling to sit around eating Doritos and watching Dr Phil to while sobbin over the guy that made a run for it.
This kid actually cracks me up. First in what I presume to be a series of "Bedroom Tapes", is Chris Drew of Never Shout Nevers self love on an unmade bed.
The band Foster the People, of “Pumped Up Kicks” fame (Iknow, totally overplayed right?), has released a new music video for their song “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)” and I couldn’t be more pleased.
They offer up this holiday gift. The typical office Christmas along with Stuart the puppet. I do hope the puppet becomes a regular in their videos, I like it. He had credibility
Seems that Yo Gabba Gabba must have a pretty hip scout or all of these bands are having kids and wanting to be on these shows (or both)
a stereotypical jaunt as death haunts you and offers you forbidden fruit and the band is adorable in white suits and the song…the song is glorious. Beautiful lyrics, well excecuted and of course the amazing Dennis Lee, who prevents this band from becoming just another hard rock band.
The tune really doesn’t wow me but its great to know the band is still together and functioning. I figure they used up all the cash from “Move Along’, which must have got a ton of attention since it was in the video game Rockband.
I now want (if not DEMAND) a stripped down tour. There is more personality and clarity in this video then their live performance that night.
The new Guards’ black and white video posted by yourstru.ly could just give me the excuse to talk about this band again, but it is actually so good that it should not be an excuse. I saw Guards live almost a year ago, and I immediately downloaded their EP (it was even free!) and I am still listening it to a year later. You really should do the same: http://guards.bandcamp.com/album/guards-ep
Melodic story telling from such a young face. There must be some history there. The video below for “Boogie Man”, describes fear so eloquently that I cant help wondering what has scared Grieves so deeply that he can convey his message like this.
“Fifty Words For Snow” a cute Eskimo themed ditty if youre so inclined to abstract. Head over to NPR, those highbrows are toasting it with Perrier and wearing sweatervests about it. Me? A bit to ethereal a little too ‘hipper than you’
‘Raw Meat’ is one of these poppy-sunny-surfy-catchy songs that fill their album, and Director Phil Pinto chose to turn down the brightness of the tune with a black and white movie, and the guys behaving more or less like some reincarnation of the Beastie Boys singing a Ramones-inspired tune.
Even if it’s just another version of one that already existed, the way that it was altered makes it revamped and cooler and more fun that ever. It really seems like nearly every corner of the music world has incorporated dubstep into something
Take Paul Simonon and Damon Albers add a dreadlocked mastervoice and you have proof positive that everyone should carry a video camera. In one personell change a song that was coming over as a sappy mess turned in to a sexy tune worth hearing.
You Me At Six, is a great band but uh oh, someone needs to put them back on track. The song begins well enough with a powerful beat and deep sound but the chorus? The chorus is the most dreadful generic rock band inspired wavelength of vomit I have heard in a great while. Its as if they just said ‘aww fuckit’ and threw it on tape.
Could you get more cool than having your Wikipedia page explain your band name as follows “Mark Foster originally named his band Foster & the People, but people misheard it as “Foster the People”. Eventually, he took to the nurturing image it evoked of “taking care” of the people, so the name stuck” I think not and their latest video just proves that the band has lost its fringe.
a good ol 78rpm spin of swoony love
I wish I were deaf.
Travis thank your folks for the piano lessons, and good job on the practicing cuz its fabulous.
hardcore without the bullshit
I cant help but wonder what will he do now?
It’s passionate and realistic, not like what rap is normally perceived as- money and fame and women.
Right now hes doing nothing but making his fans dizzy with the quick changes and odd choices
Black Veil Brides are very, very good and very, very young.
Absolutely no value whatsover other than just being fun and mindless
I think maybe he just wanted to offer those 15 year old fangirls something to hollah back with?
Please enough with this trend
an animal anthem
Who abducted Underoath and body snatched them with Radiohead
Alesana steps on stage and rule the world
The lyrics are wonderful and thought-provoking.
This version is more painful than you can imagine
the Leone brothers were born with the ego gene
I was always a fan, he just has a great sound
The usual fuzzy-noise-surfing rock sweating life-ennui and hiding behind a cloud of potsmoke
The song feels natural
I mean really could these guys bust a cap in your ass?
