Ive heard Radioactive. With the grohl sounding 'ready to rock you' chorus, they sound like a foo fighters tribute. Listening on the radio without paying too much attention at first, i thought this was the Foo Fighters's latest single. lol. Im betting they are big fans of grohl. Not that he's had much amazing input since his debut. The FF are too commercialized now, and im sure this band will be too. Not that the band will mind. Radioactive is a pretty good track but nothing that original or inspirational. In a cowell led music industry thats spitting out more generic rubbish now than ever, thats nothing to be shocked about XD

"it's time"? "radioactive"?

(like the former, hate the latter personally)

dyl, Thursday, 16 May 2013 23:35 (six years ago) link

When will Radioactive stop rising on the chart? Up to #3 after 47 weeks.

Right now it's on track to go past number one, which would be the first time in history a song has done that.

My least favorite lyric from this song is

I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus

Okay that tragic cover video.

looks like somebody decided we need a new nickelback

my girlfriend sometimes trolls me by sending me links to youtubes of really popular songs that I (a) have never heard and (b) she knows i will hate. she hasn't gotten around to this band but has trolled me with old crow medicine show, mumford & sons, and that anna kendrick thing among others. of all of the youtubes she's sent me the only one I could listen to all the way through was the OCMS one which I felt was mostly terrible but not offensively so. however if i had heard it every day for a few years I'd probably feel differently. anyway.

Heard Radioactive on Fri, it's boring nasty bad, not funny bad. Blergh.

Dragon #3 looks like if someone made a troll doll of middle aged vince neil.

my wife tried to convince me that the giant drum they play in live performances of "Radioactive" is on the studio version and i was just like 'no, that's the wub wub dubstep drum loop that's on a million other songs'

creepy-looking Imagine Dragons frontman reminds me a little of creepy-looking Arcade Fire frontman. also lol mullet.

some dude, Saturday, 24 August 2013 15:51 (six years ago) link

i still really like their first single "It's Time," though, that's one good-ass generic movie trailer-sounding song.

some dude, Saturday, 24 August 2013 15:52 (six years ago) link

I still have never listened to Imagine Dragons, but I wonder if anyone has made a fan vid with scenes of Daenerys Targaryen.

that anna kendrick thing

What is this thing?

Imagined Rayguns (flamboyant goon tie included), Saturday, 24 August 2013 16:04 (six years ago) link

she sang a song in the movie Pitch Perfect that gradually climbed into the top 10 of the pop charts nearly a year after the movie came out.

some dude, Saturday, 24 August 2013 16:19 (six years ago) link

Oooooh I'm gonna listen to that later, when everything seems to be going my way

Imagined Rayguns (flamboyant goon tie included), Saturday, 24 August 2013 16:21 (six years ago) link

The Kendrick song also has like a 2-minute steadicam shot in the video (for people who care about stuff like that).

check out the 77-second version from the soundtrack that originally went viral, the dressed-up re-recording they play on pop radio now is not nearly as good (xp)

some dude, Saturday, 24 August 2013 16:38 (six years ago) link

it's an old country song that went semi-viral when some anonymous youtubers combined it with the cup dance (2009), culminating in the Pitch Perfect scene (2012), Anna Kendrick's hit (2013), and thousands of youtube covers:

Oh that's the story. Huh. I heard that on the local pop station the other day and was a little baffled.

the folk process is still alive and well. it would be heartwarming if it weren't so nauseatingly twee.

To be fair, no twee-er than a lot of early 60s folk-pop, New Christy Minstrels et al.

the Anna Kendrick song is p much the only unobjectionable manifestation of the current folk obsession I've heard

i think it's kendricks "soulful" would-be blue notes that make her version hard to take

I've been really not listening to these guys a lot for the past few months. Pretty good so far.

I saw a magazine today that had a picture of them. The singer plays a big bass drum, or so I assume.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 25 August 2013 00:26 (six years ago) link

Keep it that way man, rly, I have their song in my head all the time atm

albvivertine, Sunday, 25 August 2013 00:42 (six years ago) link

was listening to the radio today and a truly horrible rock song came on.
My wife asked "Who is this?" and I said, "I don't know probably Imagine Dragons or something."
the DJ later confirmed that I was right.

President Keyes, Sunday, 25 August 2013 02:05 (six years ago) link

somewhat reminiscent of that famous Nick Cave quote -- "I'm forever near a stereo saying, 'What the fuck is this garbage?' And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers."

also the fact that it sounds engineered to be used in a cell-phone commercial
