that fellow tends to be rather opinionated and brash, as I can be at times on this website at times, but i'll agree with the fact that glee sucks ass.

regardless of the lyrics and being very simple one can't argue its chorus is probably one of the most infectious choruses in awhile

Infectious maybe, but I find that melody far more annoying than pleasant.

Anamericangod blasting the lyrics of this song when he listens to shit with lyrics much worse. Classic.

Complaining about lyrical melodrama on absolutepunk. Oh God. My Sides.

I wish people would realize they recorded all of those parts separately from each other then filmed it to make it look like they were playing it live.

He must be pissed at the radio edit, same vocals...shitty pop instrumental rearrangement.

Complete bullshit.

The lyrics aren't great, but I'm not sure we should compare them to something a 20-year-old college girl would write. You could have just said a 20-year-old, the girl part was a bit much. It's like you're saying that women are inferior song writers.

Where is the radio edit? YouTube? Why'd they bother. Song only goes for 4mins. How much ADD do they think people have these days

Even im pissed they made one.


Song still gives me tingles after all these months. So does Hearts a Mess from the last albun

Watch as 5 people play one instrument! I was really confused the first time I watched it but it's really cool how they pulled it off. Also that chicks voice is amazing and I feel like I have heard it before but I can't figure out where.

She's the singer for The Creepshow. Pretty good band, but I think I like the stuff she does here even better. Their Karma Police cover is just awesome.

It's not really a radio edit as much as it is an edit to appeal to a wider audience. My local top 40 station does this with all the songs I bother to listen to. They even messed up Rolling in the Deep.

I think it's "The Creepshow" the band that she's in, but I could be wrong.

Gotye is entitled to his opinion on his own song and the covers/remixes associated with it. I like that he's being honest and I like that he's defending his break out single.
