Nope - not a dime. I wish

They didn't pay.

Man, if I got paid for/by all bands I feature, I'd give up my "real life" job.

I'm not saying you guys personally got paid to post anything.

I'm just saying that it's a form of marketing and if a band/label ignored that, it would be foolish. So maybe their label paid a company to promote this. It happens all of the time in the real world.

Also Garret: Why would you say "I wish" if you are the one you that posted it. Why would you post things like this if you actually didn't like it when there are tons of other bands out there that could use the advertising. And honestly I know personal preference isn't what makes you choose music to post, but I would think that it would play a part a little bit for the exclusive.

And yes I've heard it MANY times that AP isn't paid to post things. I believe that for the most part...but I guess I just question why is this posted if there wasn't some external push behind it. It seems a majority of the staff have posted negative comments so far about this band.

Also, not trying to start shit, I hope it doesn't read that way. Just curious. I'm incredibly thankful for everything AP has done for our band and this just crossed my mind.

I did, however me not caring about this band at all trumped what you said. "Killing time" on the road is not an excuse. I get bored, and you know what I do? Jerk off, go out with friends, smoke, drink, party, eat, video games, music, blah blah blah. These bands pander at a fan base with this shitty covers and then are like "oh we were bored." Yes their label wanted to keep it going, and when they saw us roasting them for it, they copped out with excuses. Blah blah blah. If maybe the cover was just lame but they made good music I would understand. But they make terrible terrible music to go with this god awful cover. Regardless if that singer is a good dude, his band still blows. The end

Agreed.

I have nothing against them as people, I'm sure they're nice guys or whatever. All of this is missing what I find to be a big point - what the fuck is up with this being a Runner Runner song???

I bet they hired them as songwriters because they couldn't write a good enough single. You would think they would just change it a little more than they did. Apparently changing the words in the verse is what matters.
