They simply don't have any traction in the mainstream for a radio hit to happen.

Disagree.

FOB has huge mainstream support, and huge radio support. This song is catchy, but likely won't break them into the mainstream like FOB. Maybe a little bit of play on some smaller-market...

The verse is great and builds a lot of energy, but that chorus feels like it falls flat.

The amount of tracks used is out of control.

Maybe if Joe played the horn line it would have been more interesting, but it came across as basically karaoke, not a cover.

Those high closed vowel 'e's are definitely hard to hit live.

Also, seems like they've really embraced live tracks I hear tons of electronic drums, some swooshes, and lots of doubled lead vocals,...

Walk the Moon has been getting really good traction, especially in the college market. They might be too late on riding the buzz from their previous single, but I'd still consider this very close to...

Not really surprising - people wanted the single but didn't really care about the album.

Yeah, I'm not disputing that. You made it seem like it takes two years to complete the work needed to release an album, which isn't always true. Artists sometimes hold on to a finished record for...

It doesn't have to actually take two years to do the work. A two-year album cycle is just a common industry timeline.

Quality videos are often very expensive to make (though not always) for often very little return on investment these days. Hence the rise of the lyric video, which can be made by almost anyone for an...

Maylene is kind of dead. They had some terrible numbers on their last couple of tours.

These are the kinds of crowds they should have been playing to for years. Great band, will be missed.

WCAR did 1,500 in some markets on their last tour. I'm not sure if it will last, but right now, they're huge.
