    I like Modest Mouse. ODS is a moron for saying that. Someones genius does not deplete just because they "sell-out".


    Did you sell out when you took that assistant manager position at Arby's?

    What? You swear like every band sounds the same for the rest of your life. Ugh, Modest Mouse still sounds very similar to everything they have done in the past. I, personally like The Lonesome Crowded West the best, but that doesn't mean their new album is shit. I think all you are doing is not giving them a chance because they were in a car commercial. Wasn't there something about that where they didn't have any say in that anyway because they didn't own the rights to the music?

    selling out sucks, especially in the name of a car comercial. but at least their genius is still intact.

    I don't really like ben kewller all that much. Yeah I live in boston.

    As far as selling out, who cares? just listen to the music, and enjoy it. Does it really matter if they are in a car commercial? If you genuinely like the music, it shouldn't phase you at all

    really, i've nevered heard their tunes but the fact that some hit single of theirs is the cute little bow wrapped around a brand new nissan, is just something that doesnt interest me.
