I don't get it. Butch Walker, on his blog, talked about how much TAI had progressed while recording the album, and how excited he was to be a part of the maturation process, to see a album deemed worthy of being called a "rock" album. Then he turns around and goes "yeah, its 'chick heavy metal'" and its basically "bad music." Which way is it, Butch? Do you like what you do; what you attach your name to? Are you yourself just cashing a check? I mean, I LIKE what Walker did on Santi. It does show some maturation; the album is good, tremendously different from Almost Here. But wtf, does Walker even believe that, or does he go through the motions to cash a check? That really bothered me.

Today in math class, i was thinking how fall out boy resembled kiss.
because there bassist is more popular then the singer, and they both write lyrics and stuff.
I Don't know, just something i was thinking.

It's kind of hard to tell what Butch Walker is actually talking about.

And now the whole Pete Wentz vs. Crush management arguement begins, where both sides debate who was actually the person that was in control behind the scenes this whole time. Sure Pete lets them run all of the businesses and bands he has a hand in, but are they in control of the major decisions being made, or do they just run the day-to-day operations while Pete makes all of the big decisions?

Good read. I agree with the 'chick's rock band' thing they were talking about.

Similarities between emo/pop-punk and hair-metal:
- Hilariously bad hair and fashion.
- Overly produced anthems, mostly about girls.
- Completely harmless and soul-less.
- Large-scale corporate sponserships
- Hated on by most everyone.

Does Butch Walker even like FOB, P!ATD, or TAI? He seems like the only reason he does this is for the money. What an assbag, I reallllly respected all of his work until I read this. What a dick.

It's the music business, they don't have to make any sense. Cds cost less than $1 to print, but labels still charge bands $2.50 printing costs...

good read. my favorite lines?
“It’s no different than *NSYNC with guitars,” says Butch Walker
“It can get incestuous,” Wentz concedes. “Crush manages everything I do - almost everything. I pee on my own."

Does anyone who works with those bands REALLY like them? Do the band members themselves even like them?
