i honestly had no idea who these guys were before this week

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 05:57 (five months ago) link

Can’t top Dionne Warwick’s Twitter for end of year unexpected surprise but they’ve already made good in my book for the Third Eye Blind shittalking alone.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 22 December 2020 06:54 (five months ago) link

Pretty sure I know every word of "Inside Out" despite never hearing a second song by these guys

thank you for making this thread, i really wanted to

i owned the eve 6 s/t in middle school and played it almost every day and i could reel out most of the lyrics on command. i listened to it yesterday for probably the first time in 20 years. it's not embarrassing!

i suspect marketing shenanigans with eve 6 as well as dionne. i am no fun

global tetrahedron, Tuesday, 22 December 2020 16:13 (five months ago) link

afaict max collins has been tweeting like this for months and it was only really picked up on when he tweeted he was a virgin when he wrote "inside out"

i mean it could still be a marketing thing, they put out a live performance of the first album this year, but also this is eve 6 we're talking about

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 16:18 (five months ago) link

this one is my favorite

we stayed in standard tuning through the early two thousands and therefore fell into obscurity

i think the eve 6 one is real but dionne is 100% being social media managed. as are most "good at twitter" public figures. i am happy to be no fun

this:

sense of smell is the last to go and the air is thick with the chemical scent of creatine and turkey jerky emanating from the pores of the guy from third eye blind as he squeezes the life from me

i am the biggest third eye blind fan on this board probably and i'm thrilled this is happening to stephan jenkins

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 22:49 (five months ago) link

he couldn't deserve it more

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 22:49 (five months ago) link

not being a fan of either band, I think the Eve 6 guy is the one who comes off looking dopey here (does Jenkins even gaf? has he said anything?)

Qui-Gon's Noble End (morrisp), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 23:03 (five months ago) link

dionne is 100% being social media managed

Yeah, Dionne's niece Brittani (whose LinkedIn says she is a "Creative Brand Director") is behind it.

kinda bummed on chance the rapper’s behalf tbh

brimstead, Wednesday, 23 December 2020 00:38 (five months ago) link

when I first saw this my first reaction was "hmmm this guy must've given the account to an online-savvy cousin" but then again I have no clue what the Eve 6 guy was like before this, in fact I know nothing about them at all

frogbs, Wednesday, 23 December 2020 00:45 (five months ago) link

This went from mildly amusing to cringey real fast

circa1916, Wednesday, 23 December 2020 00:57 (five months ago) link

I have no clue what the Eve 6 guy was like before this, in fact I know nothing about them at all

IMO, that’s why this doesn’t even generate the same interest as, say, when the Smash Mouth guy occasionally tweets something that gets traction... Eve 6 is just a band name to me, so seeing them go all Try-Hard Twitter Engagement™ feels particularly shrug-worthy (tho I guess the “standard tuning” tweet is clever).

Qui-Gon's Noble End (morrisp), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 00:59 (five months ago) link

If this is him and not a calculated marketing move, I’m hoping it’s the result of a gnarly adderall bender.

circa1916, Wednesday, 23 December 2020 01:03 (five months ago) link

I always mix these guys up with the dude’s who did that “this is the story of a girl” atrocity

that affected form of 90s/early 2000s singer songwriter falsetto pop was enough to make me throw up in my car

Come to think of it it’s kind of surprising that this song appeared on 0 of the Neil Cicierega albums

I'd never heard them.

Patriotic Goiter (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 02:36 (five months ago) link

In 1998-2002 my younger college-aged friends were listening to, I dunno, Magnetic Fields and Air or something.

oh, for the mediocre rock radio days where you could hear Eve 6, Econoline Crush, Oleander, AND Adema on the radio within the same hour

Looking for Cape Penis house (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 02:46 (five months ago) link

A guy on campus who was not self aware would play with his band in the quad and cover eve 6 and third eye blind in 2007.

We had that + CanCon, which was... hit or miss.

this is where i draw the line and insist upon knowing which staffer from the lincoln project or steak-ummm was roped into reviving this band's 'brand'

My best friend liked the heart in a blender song. We are still bff's, perhaps slightly diminished

cerebral halsey (rip van wanko), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 03:47 (five months ago) link

Oh, it’s that “I would swallow my pride...” song. Total sonic wallpaper.

Qui-Gon's Noble End (morrisp), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:07 (five months ago) link

(YouTube’s page for the song is advertising an Eve 6 show w/Alien Ant Farm on Jan. 1 in Lincoln, NE... guess they’re going for the gold with their promo blitz)

Qui-Gon's Noble End (morrisp), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:10 (five months ago) link

nothing gets people excited for an Eve 6/Alien Ant Farm show more than lowered standards due to being stuck indoors for a year

Hot take: Leech is a better song than Inside Out.

MarkoP, Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:16 (five months ago) link

I sang the heart in a blender song at karaoke last year and I’m pretty sure it inspired this eve 6 comeback

nobody like my rap (One Eye Open), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:20 (five months ago) link

'Here's to the Night' is one of the worst songs ever to get heavy video rotation. Friend and I still sing "Are you cooooool with just tonight" to each other in dude's outrageous style for mild laughs

kniphofia face (Sufjan Grafton), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:23 (five months ago) link

I was gonna say, people who say they only know the heart in a blender song obviously did not graduate high school in 2001, when "Here's to The Night" was being used at a bunch of graduations/proms.

MarkoP, Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:25 (five months ago) link

my god, what a piece of shit song

kniphofia face (Sufjan Grafton), Wednesday, 23 December 2020 04:26 (five months ago) link

rather have "Here's to the Night" than "(Good Riddance) Time of Your Life"

i’ve been learning to play “this is a call” on the drums and it is... so fun

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 24 December 2020 01:24 (five months ago) link

first time I heard it was the MIDI version which I still think is better than the actual tune

frogbs, Thursday, 24 December 2020 01:25 (five months ago) link

I guess the “standard tuning” tweet is clever

I didn't get this one. Was there some kind of move towards alternate tunings among popular rock bands in the early 00s? I didn't notice.

drop D i think

that would be late 90s though

that tweet made me think of how the goo goo dolls wrote a lot of songs in alt tunings

Looking for Cape Penis house (Neanderthal), Thursday, 24 December 2020 02:07 (five months ago) link

i think the tweet was a reference to nu metal bands that played 7-string guitars in drop tunings

Days of the New - Touch, Peel, and Stand is the sound I imagine

didn't goo goo dolls like using weird tunings in their songs too (not that they persisted much longer than eve 6 in the zeitgeist tbh)

anyway please block this guy's account and stop checking up on it

lol at him needing to openly mock his own band's sole significant hit (which is admittedly deserving of mockery) to get a few likes on twitter. if all goes well perhaps it'll help them secure a slot on a nostalgia tour with fastball and cake

Googled "heart in a blender song", expecting it to be like, "Oh yeahhh, this". Nope.

I knew the name but I'm pretty sure I'd never heard this band until now.

I agree dyl. It’s all kind of depressing.

Looking for Cape Penis house (Neanderthal), Thursday, 24 December 2020 04:04 (five months ago) link

Oh, I was thinking of stuff like Strokes/White Stripes/Killers. Nu metal bands used extra strings and drop tunings, yeah.

Yeah I don’t recognize the Heart in a Blender song either, but It sounds like something I would have heard if I ducked into a mall CD store after purchasing advanced Phantom Menace tickets.

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Thursday, 24 December 2020 13:02 (five months ago) link

i had to look up the song. i know it as the "FAITH IN NOTHING" song. That bit goes way harder. wtf this brain stuff

feel like some people know it as the

*heart in a blender song
*the 'beautiful oblivion' song
*the 'rendezvous then I'm through with you' song
*the 'terrible' song

Looking for Cape Penis house (Neanderthal), Thursday, 24 December 2020 13:16 (five months ago) link

It’s not that terrible. As a kid I liked it because it had the word “rendezvous” and a few other long words.

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 24 December 2020 17:37 (five months ago) link

I mean this is basically the era of "Songs that would occupy Mix CDs made by Teenaged Me, because I wasn't going to actually bother and purchase the entire album for one good song, and I was desperately trying to get into popular music but had no interest in Boy Bands, Rap, or Nu Metal". And over the span of several CDs, I ended up having FOUR separate Eve 6 songs on them!

MarkoP, Thursday, 24 December 2020 19:01 (five months ago) link

Lifehouse always had secret "we formed in our church's youth group" vibes to me, but maybe it's because the singer reminded me of a kid from my church.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 25 December 2020 01:14 (five months ago) link

formative moment for 12 year old me: after months of listening to hanging by a moment on WHFS in that monumental summer of 2001 (nickelback's first hit! sum 41! alien ant farm! staind! FUEL!!!) - realizing just how bad of a singer the guy is after they started splicing in live performances from that year's HFStival

i realized then and there that we weren't entering a new golden age of recorded music. we were so close

Robert Pollard a few years ago: "At one point, I thought music couldn't get any worse than Alien Ant Farm. Now, I'm nostalgic for Alien Ant Farm".

Halfway there but for you, Friday, 25 December 2020 03:37 (five months ago) link

lifehouse was definitely a 'secret youth group' kind of band that quickly revealed itself to be basically adult contemporary BUT "hanging by a moment" is a classic honestly, most of the 'authentic' alt rock bands could never

dyl, Friday, 25 December 2020 03:44 (five months ago) link
