To clarify: nothing has yet happened which makes evaluation of the campaign or its result a good idea.
*One* song is out and you don't like it? That's a shame, but has no one heard of the concept of reserving judgment?

You'll notice that no one with positive feelings about the song has bothered to call this campaign a success the way you people have called it a failure, and (off the top of my head, correct me if I'm wrong) no one who's actually participated in the campaign has come out and shit on it now that one song they may not like has come out.

All signs point to being dicks for the sake of being dicks.
But that's just the way I'm looking at it - I'm excited for all this to come to some resolution before I bother to reflect at all, so I'm biased until this is over. If the album's shitty, that'll be a real shame... but fuck, this has been fun no matter what so I won't consider it a problem. It's a shame when people can't just be positive, or at least avoid being negative, for one minute

I don't give a shit if it's a success or a failure. I think the song sucks. I would think that even if it was released without any sort of viral campaign at all. We get that you are having the time of your life with the campaign and you love the song. Cool. Some people feel otherwise.

the campaign was a huge success at getting people to pay attention to it but the song is bad.

The fact that you think your opinion is valued enough for you to give it the number of times and with the tone you have is astounding.

There's nothing disturbing about that thread being at 11k. In fact, there isn't even anything surprising. If even *you* are calling it interesting, think about how much interest the happy and whimsical users of this site have in it.

It's lyrically far below AWOLNATION standards.

Tyler, this song isn't even in the same ballpark as Big Sean "Guap" okay.

Don't open that can of worms, Joe might defend himself again.

I'm really interested in seeing what comes of this though...
All signs seem to point to the Lane/Accardi project, but it's nice to let the imagination go nuts.

So some (likely) terrible band releases a (definitely) terrible song after a (definitely) annoying viral marketing campaign and we aren't allowed to criticize it because the entire thing hasn't come full circle yet?

The fact that this band farted out Jesse Lacey's name to get attention, or whatever, and then proceeded to release an insultingly bad song shouldn't bother me? I shouldn't criticize that?
