Head to the replies to check out Andrew McMahon playing a new song on tour called, "Synesthesia." The track seems to reference fun., "...and my friends are in the news, collecting trophies for the songs they wrote."

It's hard to tell in this context but is he bitter about it? I mean he follows it up with "I guess I never made a gold record..."

Fun. opened for him about 3 years ago. Now he's the opener. I'd be bitter too. But they are better musicians.... so.... go figure

While I disagree with the bolded, I do understand why he'd be bitter.

I'm curious,

I don't understand the appeal to Andrew/Jacks Mannequin so if you care to explain to me why you like him I'd be interested to listen.

Am I the only one shocked that he hasn't made a gold record. I guess I over estimated how big his projects have been

Well, a lot of it isn't a conscious reason - the beauty of music is that it's a very individualized experience, so what means something to you might not mean anything to me, and vice versa.
That said, I just like that Andrew writes very catchy music, is an extremely skilled pianist, and is incredibly passionate about what he does. So you might disagree and say fun. still is better, if you like. They really just bore me, and for whatever reason, I find way more emotional connection to Swim and Hammers and String (A Lullaby) by Jack's Mannequin than I do to Some Nights or We Are Young.

I don't think those song choices are fair comparisons. You chose 2 deep tracks from Jack's and compared them with funs most popular radio tracks from their breakthrough record to make your point.
