United Nations May Not Be in Stores Next Week

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (09/05/08)
MTV has written an informative article about how United Nations' new album may not be able to be sold in stores due to copyright issues. There is also great discussion on the ideals behind the band and the response from their myspace feature.
From the Article"To me, it was like, maybe speaking sincerely about things isn't enough to make people pay attention. Maybe you have to make fun of people and be a mirror to show them how stupid they look, to get their attention. That's the idea. Punk is just way too safe these days, so we're hoping by making some audacious claims and doing some strange things and breaking a few laws, we can get people to think at least. It's the idea that you need to embrace the absurdity or it will f---ing kill you. The world doesn't make sense, and trying to make sense of it is a fool's errand."

I always assumed only the vinyl would carry the stolen cover art.

Maybe the art for the regular release has the same problem.

Did anyone who has commented on this even read the article??

Nowhere in the article did Geoff say he was sad. He practically said that he doesn't care what happens, UN was just something to do.

Anyways, I'm not going to summarize the article for idiots who chose not to read it and come off as fools commenting on it.

Only one person's comment makes it look like they didn't read it?

The sad Geoff comment is the only one. The rest of us were referring to what Geoff said when he was on the boards discussing United Nations.
