    Modest Mouse appreciation

    Discussion started by Agt. Adopus - Jan 24, 2004

    Yeah...


    Despite Modest Mouses recen appearance in a Nissan commercial, I love them. Isaac Brock is a genius. Id have to say my favorite album is the Lonesome Crowded West. There new album, "Good News for People Who Love Bad News", is coming out in April

    I would also like to address the criticism Modest Mouse has been getting due too there participation in the Nissian commercial. - When I first heard the commercial I was shocked and saddened. It was disappointing to hear a band like Modest Mouse in a fucking commercial for a van. But you have to realize this - Modest Mouse has not been "underground" or "independent" since probably late 97 - early 98. When they released The Moon and Antarctica on Sony records, they blew up. And guess what, Gravity Rides Everything, the song in the Nissian commercial, was on The Moon And Antarctica. Therefor Modest Mouse DID NOT have to consent to there song being used, it is PROPERTY OF SONY. So in essence, you should have been bellyaching far sooner, if at all. Sony got money from Nissian then paid Modest Mouse money.

    No, this is where you're wrong. These fucks have absolutely no talent. They fuckin sound like grandma's singing. This shit pisses the fuck outta me every time my roommate plays them. They don't play a single fuckin note, everything sounds like it's out of tune, I mean goddamn!

    i appreciate modest mouse

    i also appreciate hearing good music on tv whenever there's nothing but straight up bullshit on for the last like six years.

    there's not a goddamn thing wrong with having your music on a commercial. "oh, but music's not about making money." you might say.
    music is also not about "staying underground".


    llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllets go to the movies
