This band has always been desperate for attention, ever since the brokencyde fight thing.

I don't think it's settled into their heads yet that they're not going to make it big.

He's fucking kidding. You little kids are morons. Learn the language of sarcasm! Stop talking shit on Punchline or I will punch YOU. They are the nicest dudes ever, and this is funny.

They'll hit the Top Ten.
They're a great band and make awesome music, but #1 on iTunes is quite a task.
Let's see!

This is definitely not gonna happen, and I really doubt he'd quit... But oh well, maybe I can be proven wrong.

not to sound cynical, and I'm pretty far removed from this band myself but I just think this is one of the worst ways to promote your music I've ever seen. what happened to the love of playing? if his ep isn't #1 on itunes he's quitting punchline and the bass? first it sounds childish. second it's like any sportsplayer vowing to quit their sport if they don't win the championship AND league MVP, or any actor vowing this is their last movie if they don't get the academy award. stupid.

at least do something constructive like try to trend on twitter or something. that's marketing. threatening your fans that if they don't buy your music you're quitting is some sort of blackmail bullshit.

Guys.

It's a joke.

If it's a joke, I didn't laugh, but I guess it's a nice try?

This strikes me as rather immature. But, if his music speaks for itself, it'll work. If not...

Joke or not, it really doesn't matter so much that I'm upset about.

I'm just saying, if it's a joke, it's a poor one, and in the end calling it a joke is just attempting to thinly veil the obvious implications of the message which are "buy my EP or else I'll quit." Adding a "JK" to the end of the statement doesn't really clear away the threat.

Now, I completely agree with Chris, that bands like Punchline, although I do not listen to them in particular, DESERVE and SHOULD BE in the top ten on Itunes more than LMFAO etc.

That being said, this is not the way to do it. Joke or not, threatening to quit making music cause you're not number 1 in sales on Itunes is childish.
