I love Silversun Pickups, and I totally dig hot chicks, but that video sucks shit nevertheless.

Truth be told, I'm kind of feeling Silversun Pickups. Due to their lack of MicroKorg use, freak folk overtones, plaid shirts, and 9-minute music videos about being in jail and/or a minefield; I assume they are not popular on with commenters.

Well, I like them. This is a dumb video, just like Lazy Eye video is dumb.
I like Panic Switch and The Royal We videos, though. When they go for visual style instead of cutesy stuff, like this video, they do o.k..
Hope to win the tickets!

they're OK if you like an almost exact mimic of the smashing pumpkins.

YOU are also a commenter.

I also am quite tired of all those other things you mentioned. Lots of other commenters are as well.

I dislike this band because they are a bit bland, and cause they mostly exist due to consistently saying yes to literally every KROQ style radio fest/tour out there. And you know what? Good for them. Congrats on their success. However, I get to still have an opinion, and it is that this show will sell out regardless of anybody promoting it in this fine paper, therefore why should I care about it?

And dude...come on. If they are too dim to realize Smashing Pumpkins is an incredibly lame band to emulate, then they kind of suck.

They sound ok but the video is boring. I saw them recently at the Key Arena w/Muse.

Wow, a whole lot of "I don't want your free stuff, I'm gonna complain" going on here - christ, no one's making you enter, or go to the show.

Cool not many people are interested in winning these tix. Improves my odds. Saw them with Muse and they were pretty good. Bonus, Against Me is leading in so I can see what they are all about.

If you don't like this type of music, I have good news for you. You don't have to listen to it, you don't have to buy it, and you certainly don't have to go to the Paramount on the last night in July.

You can stay home and listen to your favorite Pixies album (vinyl no doubt)on repeat and go on and on about how contemporary artists all suck and copy other bands that also sucked.
