I'm bummed that there's a chunk of Good Views I'll never hear live, haha. Great interview though.

Thanks! And yeah, I was a bit surprised to hear that. Although I'm not really familiar with what they play live either, it's been a few years since I saw them open for The Flatliners.

A little let down you didn't ask him my question about how they now feel about having a that song about literally crying when Obama won the 2008 election.

Sorry, but it's because I already asked them about "Election Night" three years ago:

"Yeah, “Election Night” is a true story. We were in Florida after the Fest and our van broke down once again. We had to get a new starter and we had a long drive that day so we had to cancel the show that night. So skipping that show we’d drive from Florida to Richmond, Virginia to make the next show. That night driving we were listening to radio all night listening to the election coverage. We were all blown away by what was happening and really hopeful and excited. I’ve gotten a lot of crap for that song too because people are like ‘Oh, it’s an Obama love song’ and it’s not an Obama love song. It’s a song about how we were feeling that night and how everyone we knew was feeling with the same hope and excitement. We didn’t think it was actually going to change the world completely, but it was the best thing that could have happened that day."

And I really didn't see the need to bring it up again. I don't see the controversy surrounding that song and even though I'm Canadian I think it's a really, really good thing that Obama beat McCain in that election. And I also think it's an incredibly good thing that Romney didn't win a few months ago.

They never play that song at shows. I wonder why. I really do.
Probably because so many people complained to them about that song, even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with that song.

I was joking, haha. Nothing wrong with the song, but it's cheesy as hell.
Alright, I almost never pick up sarcasm on the Internet, haha. I personally think they've written some cheesier lines, but that's just me.
