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

flesh, the devil, and a wolf (wolf) (amateurist), Sunday, 25 August 2013 14:28 (six years ago) link

my only real quibble with the song is that i would never miss talking to somebody who says things like "you're gonna miss me by my talk"

:( I wonder how those girls are doing. The girls who made the first video. Paid? I hope so. I like their version. I don't know what it is that makes Anna Kendrick's version sound like Edward Sharpe, I think there is some "cell phone ad" production trick in place that I bet one could figure out if one were to play these songs on studio monitors but I would rather leave that mystery undiscovered

Imagined Rayguns (flamboyant goon tie included), Sunday, 25 August 2013 19:02 (six years ago) link

It's a revolution, I suppose

how's life, Sunday, 25 August 2013 19:45 (six years ago) link

it's the tinkly something or other, all cell phone ads must have music with tinkly somethings or other

three months pass...

Heard the new song from these people on the radio, and I just knew it was their new song. It was like this perfect conflation of Maroon 5, fun., One Republic and other ... stuff.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 6 December 2013 14:05 (six years ago) link

"Demons"? i dunno what's very fun. (or "fun") or Maroon 5 about that one.

deez the season (some dude), Friday, 6 December 2013 14:07 (six years ago) link

That it's lame?

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 6 December 2013 14:08 (six years ago) link

I was thinking the vocals specifically, the same sort of not soulful singing from the soul, with massed sort of pinched high anono vocals

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 6 December 2013 14:09 (six years ago) link

I wonder if this one will also be in the top 20 for an entire year like the last horrible song.

skip, Friday, 6 December 2013 15:15 (six years ago) link

I'm glad I haven't heard "Radioactive" in a long while. That song was starting to make me suicidal.

afriendlypioneer, Thursday, 19 December 2013 19:44 (five years ago) link

i read that kendrick is performing w/ them at the grammys

mums go off when i enter the building (monotony), Thursday, 19 December 2013 19:50 (five years ago) link

"Demons" has been on the chart for 34 weeks and is still rising, from #7 to #6 this week. We're probably in for another yearlong Imagine Dragons track.
