"Fuck that was hilarious.
Now me and my band need to do a metalcore cover of it.
We'll nickname it, Breakdown Maybe."
I literally groaned out loud, that was a bad joke and you should feel bad I'm sorry.

but yeah this is cool. Band is great and the original song is great so them two together is extra nice.

It's really interesting to me that We Are Young is so goddamn popular, but at the same time it doesn't really surprise me. It's got that faux-deep shallow message and it's simple enough to be very infectious.

It is a little frustrating though; Aim & Ignite was a legitimately fantastic pop record and it barely received a fraction of the attention that they have now. Good for them though, I suppose.

"My joke wasn't as bad as the original Call Me Maybe song. "

nah Call Me Maybe is great.

and yeah I agree, I honestly didn't even know We Are Young was fun. when I everybody started playing it, I just didn't link up "oh fun. released a new record neat I need to look that up sometime" and "oh there's this new single that kinda sounds like fun. but it's just really annoying". idk how it got so popular but that chorus is just ughhhh so corny.

"It's got that faux-deep shallow message and it's simple enough to be very infectious."
I don't think anyone thinks it's deep, it's just supposed to be anthemic, kind of like the "yolo" for Apple store indie kids I guess. I think the song itself is fine but that CHORUS DEAR GOD THAT CHORUS and overall the song is just underwhelming. But good for them for finding such a hit song!

I mean it's good that it made them more popular since they deserve it, they're a good band. I just hope their future singles find equal success and aren't so corny.

Come on, man. Isn't it a wee bit silly to expect anybody that hears 'We Are Young' to immediately flock to a computer and familiarize themselves with everything Ruess has done?

Singles are the way that people are exposed to bands - at least they're getting heard in the first place.

I feel like people like you who says only idiots listen to pop are piece of filth hipsters. Like every genre, there is great pop out here. Just because shitty pop is the one that gets popular, that doesn't mean there isn't any shit music from any genre. Give me your favorite genre and it would be a piece of cake to finds dozens of terrible bands in that genre. Don't throw stones when you're in a glass house.
