    I still don't understand why people think they're a good band. I just don't get it.

    Yeah, me neither. But "Keep The Car Running" is a great fucking song.

    Will they be serving Kool-Aid?

    For the first minute or so, but the whole song feels like it's building and building and building to something but then never delivers. It's like a hip hop song where the music never changes and gets annoying after a couple minutes.

    It's not our neighbors butting their noses into our business. The Butler boys were born in Texas. Regine also boasts dual citizenship.
    The kids (not the entire band) also did a show in Ohio last night. Damn, I'd rather hear them pitch for Obama than John Kerry's longwinded spiel Friday night.

    Do you have problems with your hearing? "Neon Bible" knocked me flat on my ass...I hadn't been that much into a record since "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" by Wilco.

    If you have to go to Cleveland to see it, is it really a free concert?

    True dat, yo!
    Or however the kids are talking. Arcade Fire is the band I'd most like to see in concert right now. I live hours and hours from Cleveland though.

    Well, shit, if you were blown away by it then we all should have been.

    Your personal experience has nothing to do with mine. I don't dig it. These things happen.
