"Sharing is caring." Do I look like a person that gives a crap?!
You know what I hate? I hate it when "unknown" bands that I like get really big and popular because of a catchy hit single or a "cool" music video. I don't like sharing my unknown-but-cool bands. I know it's selfish. I just like having them all to myself. I'm an elitist. Sue me.
Most recent example is Jimmy Eat World. This little emo band has been around for a while. Not many people knew about this band except the emo kids. Oh and Sam. He went to Edison, remember?
Anyway, they were relatively unknown until this year, when they released "The MIddle". I like this song. I like the video.
Then I hear it on KROQ. OK, that's cool. They've played JEW before, no biggie. Then I hear it a lot. Then Dooj tells me kids at Sunny Hills like them. Uh oh. Asian kids. Oh no. Korean kids. Oh God no.
Just when I'm starting to lose hope, I hear the song on STAR. 98 point freakin' 7. WTF?! You can't play JEW!! Go back to playing your Matchbox 20's and your Jewels and your John Mayers!
Then last week I saw them playing on Saturday Night Live. OK, that wasn't too bad. SNL is a respectable show, for me anyway. They get decent people to play music for that show. At least they weren't playing on Jay Leno. That would really suck.
Now they're starting to play "Sweetness" on KROQ. Sweet Jesus and Mary. Please not that song. I love that song. I can't share that song. I've been listening to it by myself for like 3 years. I have 3 different versions of that song. (the original version is the best) If I hear that song on STAR, I would go uber-psycho.
Don't even get me started on Weezer.
