The song is very light-hearted, it's just a bit of fun. For a couple of tracks (the rest of the band) let me explore the boundaries.
It sucks. It's horrible. There's no places to play. There's no real support for bands. No one really cares. Everyone plays death metal or post-hardcore screamo, and that's pretty much it. Everyone sounds the same.
We're weird guys. I don't know if a lot of people get our humor. A lot of people probably think we're jerks. We're real sarcastic. Really ironic and stuff. We mean well, but we joke around probably a lot more than we should.
I don't know. We don't really fall under a label. It's generally based around rock music, but I guess, theatrical rock? I don't know. I can't really describe it. I suck at that.
My advice would be to take time with the music and writing, rather than just getting a song done, really thrown together, and go play a show. Live shows, for us at least, back home in Vegas, don't seem to do anything. Bands can be playing for seven years and never get anything done. So, I guess, practice more and write music carefully.
"Look at this thing... I can't even... see where this is going." *Bumps into Jon*
"Huh? Oh, God. I'd be a Powerpuff Girl. No, actually, you know what? Honestly...Elmer Fudd. 'cos he carried a gun. So, you know, you're always protected and he doesn't let his speech impediment keep him down. He still hunts rabbits, wabbits"
Guy: "Alot of bands get bottled at festivals..but to get it clocked in the head.." Brendon: "I feel honoured.."
"He's so attractive.. I can't.. shut my eyes."
"I have an apple bottom."
"Ryan, you better not even come near me on that stage today."
Some fan screaming: "I love Ryan!" Brendon: "*I* love Ryan!"
Jon: “I’d probably open up my own animal shelter” Audience: AWWW Brendon: “No! He hate animals! It’s a lie!”
I don't know. I don't care. It's like if we really cared in high school about like, who won best dressed or who got best eyes, you know. It's just like a popularity contest that we don't really care to run in.
It's ignorant! The stereotype is guys that are weak and have failing relationships write about how sad they are. If you listen to our songs, not one of them has that tone. Emo is bullsh*t! If people want to take it for the literal sense of the word, yes we're an emotional band, we put a lot of thought into what we do. People always try to stereotype us, but we don't fit the emo stereotype.
When we first started off, we made our record and then we played our first show. There was a bit of an expectation, you know, "Fall Out Boy signed them. They never played a show. They better be, like, real good." In the beginning, we sucked, too. We were horrible. We're still not too good, but we've gotten better. I'll just say that much.
I’m a Ritalin kid, and I’ve always been very outgoing. I don’t have a problem performing in front of five thousand people.
He stole our thunder!
You can’t take me out! Let's see how well you guys do with my left side!
