The original song was already intended as a joke, so I think most people understood that this was a joke too...anyways its kinda stupid to parody a parody song. Besides, you don't get a freepass for criticism just because you did something for fun. The original song was hilarious...this "cover" just came too late and the song has already been worn out and the cover didn't bring anything new.

Then again, I'm not a Broadway fan anyways, /shrug.
I'm just laughing at the fact that you said the cover didn't bring anything new. It kinda leads one to believe you've never listened to either songs.

haha. i don't think you understood what I meant at all and maybe that is my fault for not making myself clear or something. Obviously NEITHER song is going to bring anything new from a musical/creative standpoint. What I meant is, the original song was a hilarious parody of terrible commercial hip-hop. The cover song was...a cover of a parody song. It did nothing but be less funny than the original.

It didn't bring anything new as in, I don't see the point in it being made. The original was funny and entertaining. In my opinion, this cover song was nothing but attempt to bring a little cheap promotion for covering a buzz-song (a little late on it being a buzz song though too haha).

I sent AP.net a tip about this about a month ago, but it was never posted. This was much funnier and much more creative in my opinion

Cue ChokeyChicken immediately.

Edit: Was this band always screamo? Or am I confusing them with another band from FL with Broadway in their name?
no its the same band....they had a drastic line up change (meaning the drummer is the only original member) a couple years ago which as you can see changed their overall sound a bit....so that may be what you are thinking of.

in other news Im surprised I haven't come across more bands covering this song...the first time i heard it i thought it would quickly become the cliche cover for every powerpop synthy band out there. a band called T13C! did like a remix called "Im on a float" search youtube for it...its kinda funny

Yea. Broadway Calls maybe?
No no, they're completely different.

No you're thinking of the right band. They completely changed

What a shame. Yea, I mentioned this band in a blog last year. I don't remember them being so screamo. Ah well, I still like the cover so it's not that big of a deal.

Would have been a million times better without the autotune of the lead singer.
