my god this is awful. oh god no more.

first off, they're tuned so hard. if they're even singing it live at all. sounds like a recording.

second they do not need a small troup of dudes to sing that song.

third they can't dance for fuck.

I hate music. what the fuck

Reminds me of when LP from Yellowcard was Adam Lambert's drummer.

That really irks me. I never imagined a member of a band like Thursday comprising integrity in exchange for a paycheck. I understand that playing music professionally is a job, but really? The song is catchy, but I don't honestly believe that this is what they want to be doing. The fact that they're doing it solely based on money really makes me uncomfortable
why is it so awful that they want to continue making money while still playing music?

they are still doing what they love to do.

Most people in the world do things they don't want to do for money. That's why it's called work or a JOB.

Dude, you do what you have to do. This is the opinion of someone who doesn't work to support themselves. Maybe these guys aren't qualified to do anything but play music. Therefore, if Ellen calls and says you can make a quick buck, your integrity goes out the window.

- Geoff Rickley
I assume the rest of the band is like that, and I have no problem with that.

It's just like how dudes who want to make a buck go into gay porn regardless of their orientation. Yeah, it sucks, and it's a pain in the ass, but if you need money, and you only have a limited set of skills, your hands are tied (in the scenario of gay porn, your hands may be literally tied).

who's even to say that they compromised their integrity in play for this boy band? do all of you know Tucker and Brian? was this decision something they struggled with? did they worry what people on the internet that don't know them or their intentions would think?

they are just playing in a backing band, it's a job, it's good for them.

It's a paycheck for a couple of out-of-work musicians. Why wouldn't they? I hate food too.

I kept waiting for Tucker to just say "FUCK IT" and start playing "A Gun in the First Act" or something.

But really, people who find this at all compromising or "stupid" for them to do this obviously are not pursuing a career in the arts. Sometimes you have to do shit like this. Plus, I'm just glad they are playing the instruments they love, still. At the heart of it, if it was a post about Tucker being a backup dancer or caught delivering pizzas, THEN i'd be sad. Dude is too good.

I don't know, playing music you don't like for money is just weird to me. Especially when you're a musician that is going from the amazing tracks on no devolucion to supporting an english boy band instrumentally.
