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

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

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

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

It's a revolution, I suppose

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.

I accidentally heard some of this crap today and they sound like shitfucks.

I think melodically it sounds not unlike a Coldplay tune.

timellison, Tuesday, 7 January 2014 18:10 (five years ago) link

I heard a tiny bit of one song this morning, it was pretty dull, I thought they were suppose to be a "rock band"?

chr1sb3singer, Tuesday, 7 January 2014 18:13 (five years ago) link

People embrace the post-apocalypse these days. Also, prison dramas. And mediocrity.

how's life, Tuesday, 7 January 2014 18:29 (five years ago) link

"Radioactive" was just in the right place at the right time, the world was ready for grungestep

some dude, Tuesday, 7 January 2014 18:42 (five years ago) link

Radioactive isn't bad for 10 seconds until the horrorshit goes fecalith

VENIET IMBER (imago), Tuesday, 7 January 2014 18:44 (five years ago) link

I've never heard this band. I know they are Mormon just from their name.

This is the thread where we never listen to Imagine Dragons

^ this song (Anna Kendrick's Cups, not imagine dragons, obvs) is being taught in our nation's schools. My 4th-grader brought it home with him and this is the rhythm that's been driving our weekend.

how's life, Sunday, 26 January 2014 02:18 (five years ago) link

i had no idea that that horrible kingdom come song i've been hearing absolutely everywhere and hating 24/7 is by them, what a disgusting piece of shit jfc

I have just knowingly listened to Imagine Dragons for the first time. They are rotten.

I wish to incorporate disco into my small business (chap), Sunday, 26 January 2014 15:34 (five years ago) link

Seeing them on Saturday Night Live. Ugh, except for guest Kendrick Lamar.

curmudgeon, Sunday, 2 February 2014 05:13 (five years ago) link

2nd song was even worse-- the worst aspects of '90s and 2000s era commercial rock

curmudgeon, Sunday, 2 February 2014 05:51 (five years ago) link

not my style of rock

"Imagine Dragons tie a vaunted Billboard Hot 100 record this week, as "Radioactive" logs its 76th week on the survey. The sum ties the mark established by Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" in 2008-09."

this is some achievement.

despite my best efforts, i've heard this band before. it's pretty grim, this nu-grunge.

well, this live review might have made it all worth it:

this band is horrible

gimme the lute (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 13 March 2014 23:09 (five years ago) link

not a fan of them but shit like "Although the audience was young, the amount of children present proves that the average Imagine Dragons fan is an enlightened and advanced being -- as this is a serious band of serious musicians, most certainly only capable of being understood by adult intellectuals" come on

katherine, Thursday, 13 March 2014 23:10 (five years ago) link

i thought there were lots of funny lines but i guess i don't really give a shit about the message or w/e
