fun. Still Number One on iTunes

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/07/12)
While checking the chart position of Every Time I Die for the news post below, I happened to see that fun.'s "We Are Young" is still sitting at number one on the singles charts. So very cool.

It's getting harder and harder to convince Andrew Dost to quit and get Anathallo back together again...

So wild. They sold out two nights at Terminal 5 here in New York City (3000-capacity). When they played there as an opener with Paramore last year, the show didn't even sell out until day of.

It sucks so much we have to lower our expectations so much and be excited that a mediocre representation of a certain sound is #1 on the chart, but I guess that's mainstream music in 2012.

I'm certainly happy for fun., but it would be so much cooler if one of their best songs could make it to #1. If they were selling 6000 tickets in 24 hours due to "Benson Hedges", that would really be something beautiful.

I hope their new stuff selling so well leads people to their old stuff too. I personally think Aim is a better album than Some Nights and it wasn't nearly as well appreciated.

just because you don't like the song doesn't mean it's a "mediocre representation of a certain sound"

Who cares? Maybe 1/4 of the people who love We Are Young will go back and check out Some Nights and Am And Ignite. Isn't that enough?

It sucks so much that you have to lower your happiness for a band when their "best song," in your opinion, is not everyone's favroite song.

I actually 100% agree with you on this.
