Damn. Good for them I guess, considering the amount of promotion Paramore got from this kind of thing. Minus the Bear makes some incredible music.

This band is so good, never really thought they had a sound that fit the mainstream but what do I know, good for them.

MTV? or MTV 2? I could see it on MTV 2 but MTV never really shows anything music related, at least when I tune to it, hopefully, I get to catch something. Anyone know like any times for anything they're showing?
EDIT: If this counts for anything, they used one of the song's off Planet of Ice for a commercial for this Celebrity Rap Star show or something...

Very easily one of the best bands around right now. Planet of Ice and Menos El Oso are absolutely incredible albums, of which I've yet to tire. I tend to not like when bands get pimped by MTV, but I really don't see these guys changing for the worse.

whenever i see their singer do an interview he seems to be so uninterested and unenthusiastic about everything.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet...too bad MTV really barely TELLS us who these bands are (minus Aesop Rock last week, they had "Aesop" written everywhere).
