No.

I'd play if it'd keep the song locked up.

1000 likes for 15 seconds? No deal.

This is like Myspace, but worse.

DannyCostellar 05/15/12 03:46 PM

Oh look, another "like" campaign.

Fuck any band that does this.

Keep hearing their Blackout song here on the radio in the UK must have been a pretty big hit for them

I actually quite like these guys, even though I shouldn't. They should make more like Blackout for sure.

Was this on the last album, or from an upcoming album? If so I didn't realize they were putting new music out this soon.

They recently signed to a pretty big label (Columbia Records) after the success of their last album so I'm guessing they are trying to push them as high as they can into the mainstream market to get bigger.

Not gonna lie their last album was a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine.

Yeah! How dare they market themselves! What assholes!

I mean BC's music is pretty tacky but this is a neat idea.

I'm all for bands marketing themselves, but 1000 likes for 15 seconds? Yeah, that's a bit much. They're never going to reach that. I don't even like this band, and I hate when bands/people ask me to like their Facebook page, it's still a good idea to use social media as a way to promote your band. The way most bands do it is awful, though. They put more emphasis on likes on Facebook rather than on promoting their music in general.
