It's 2 a.m. and I'm not even sleepy at all. anyway, don't be fooled by the title. this post has nothing to do with love.
just learned that Incubus' song Love Hurts is somewhere in the top 10 of billboard's modern rock chart this week. HELLO! That song is from the Light Grenades album and it's 2 years old.
It's also one of the band's suckiest songs in my opinion. Having that song out makes them compare more with bands like the click five or boys like girls rather than the foo fighters or audioslave. Having that song also makes them unfit to play european rock festivals (which they've been playing every year). As if the crowd needs more reasons to throw stuff and boo them. they should leave the whiny, cheeseball songs to the new bands.
How can you play right before Metallica or Rage with a song that goes "Love hurts but sometimes it's a good hurt and if feels like I'm alive... without love i won't survive".
Heck, I'm finding it hard to believe that this songwriter is the same one who wrote Megalomaniac.
Brandon, may I have a word with you?
haha ang hindi makatulog, nag-rant. I just hate to see my favorite bands deviate from the very reasons i liked them in the first place.
although there's really nothing we fans can do if the band we like wants to take another direction. they're going to find new listeners that will appreciate their music and we can turn attention to other bands as well.
