Against my better judgement, I listed blink and NFG as part of my band's RIYL. I'm guessing way too many pop/punk bands that end up on FMF list those two bands thinking that's enough to coax a good majority of the AP community to give their band a listen. In my defense, the NFG influence in our song is obvious, but I probably should have went with Sum 41 as opposed to blink.

Anyway, I feel like the RIYL criteria for FMF is the simplest way for a band to rope in new listeners because it's a band's chance to say "This is why you should take a few minutes of your time to check us out". Simple yes, but how effective is it really?

If you're in a band that gets featured in a FMF update, I feel you should take advantage of the fact that you can reply to the post and let everyone know why people should take the time to check your band out, beyond the RIYL section.

That said, if you happen to be in the minority of AP members whom I've seen in various threads, stating that bands like Man Overboard and The Wonder Years don't really do much for you, or even if you were someone that completely just shat on the latest Transit record, then please give Seven States Away's song "Sitcom" a listen, I'm confident that you'll be pleasantly surprised with our brand of pop/punk. I know that might be a bold statement and there's a good chance I might get flamed for it but in my defense, I'm just trying to go the extra mile to get people interested in my band.

Thanks \m/
