If Imagine Dragons = Mackerelmore, does Drake = Dave Mathews Band?

if you watch nba basketball it's been near-impossible to escape this band (not sure about this demons song, but still ...)

i am a-ok with that concert review, too.

Daniel, Esq 2, Saturday, 15 March 2014 00:16 (five years ago) link

Holding the audience captive with their intense stage presence, the Naked and Famous swayed with the sort of intensity only witnessed at the city's finest topless bars in North Minneapolis

lol

My roommate was playing this at the minimum level on her laptop (like one bar above the complete mute of the mac sound level) and I thought she was playing like, a broadway soundtrack

three weeks pass...

Oh no, they're being cited as an influence. This is from a NEEDTO BREATHE email press release:

MTV praises the bands "thunderous folk-rock" and adds "the South Carolina natives have managed to infuse the contemporary, chest-thumping rock styling's of Imagine Dragons with the old-school, down-home goodness of a group like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young ... wrapped up in an ethereal, woodsy, Bon Iver

also one of the biggest alt hits of the last few months sounds like a carbon copy of ID's first hit "It's Time"

some dude, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 15:12 (five years ago) link

Ugh, that American Authors song has got to be one of the most god-awful hit singles in recent memory (perhaps even more unbearable than "Radioactive", which is quite an achievement)

Frontier Psychiatrist, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 15:28 (five years ago) link

On a side note, will somebody please fucking kick "Radioactive" off the Hot 100 already

Frontier Psychiatrist, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 15:29 (five years ago) link

two years pass...

maybe they sing in a made-up dragon language full of guttural grunts and hissy sounds

or songs from the dragon's point of view about how girls always end up going out with asshole knights who treat them badly

sometimes it seems like we are the ones who are being imagined by dragons, and not the other way around

also "Believer" is the biggest bullshit of 2017

It seems like some of you may have listened to Imagine Dragons

Wow, I had no idea these songs were by them. Terrible like all their old stuff but clearly a successful repositioning.

can’t wait for Barenaked Ladies vs Imagine Dragons suit over this melody

Larry Elleison (rogermexico.), Thursday, 23 November 2017 17:21 (two years ago) link

What melody? Are you all listening to Imagine Dragons? This thread used to mean something.

.oO (silby), Thursday, 23 November 2017 17:33 (two years ago) link

Ugh I hate people... in one of my bars keep asking for those Imagine Dragons singles from this year and they are awful. I refuse you Imagine Dragons!

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 23 November 2017 17:33 (two years ago) link

i got blindsided in a rental car lol. i was like, what is this bullshit that lifted a melody from Barenaked Ladies (and it was irritating the first time)? and it was imagine dragons. so.

Larry Elleison (rogermexico.), Thursday, 23 November 2017 20:56 (two years ago) link

my neighbors went to this concert a few weeks ago and came home with matching Imagine Dragon shirts.

also, find it disconcerting that Google Voice to Text knows to capitalize Imagine Dragons.

I just accidentally heard some Imagine Dragons while checking on the football game and it made me think of this post and the more innocent times before I had actually heard Imagine Dragons.

I just said "imagine dragons remix featuring lil wayne" out loud and I'm questioning lots of things

mh, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 16:48 (eleven months ago) link

listened to a few of their non-single songs mid-last year when i was trying to figure out what song was in a trailer for the 2018 chapter of the mission: impossible saga

some of their album deep cuts do... very different things. not good things, but definitely different ones

mh, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 16:59 (eleven months ago) link

You need to take this to a thread where you do listen to Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons sounds like a minor-league baseball team in a town owned by the Walt Disney Company

bros before HOOS (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 17:14 (eleven months ago) link

I heard the entirety of their latest album while playing board games with my parents over the holidays.

One of the songs was very drum and bass.

MarkoP, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 17:45 (eleven months ago) link

you can never be sure if you've listened to imagine dragons because every song is a slightly different style

which of these styles will be best for licensing in a commercial? gotta try em all

mh, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 18:29 (eleven months ago) link

any time i hear a song on the radio i don’t recognize i assume it’s imagine dragons and it usually is

I was wondering today why everybody hated these guys and then played their three biggest hits and realized I fucking hate all three and just didn't know it was them

i might have heard imagine dragons in a fast casual burger joint tonight but i guess i'll never know

difference between listening and hearing imo

Just discovered this wonderful thread, but I can't contain my curiosity (I suspect I've heard a lot of Imagine Dragons without realizing it and I need to go find out), so this is farewell.

enochroot, Friday, 11 January 2019 16:23 (ten months ago) link

(shit, turns out that I legit had never heard any imagine dragons songs before, but it's too late now)

enochroot, Friday, 11 January 2019 16:26 (ten months ago) link

from the Spin article:

The word “thunder” appears nearly 75 times in their song of the same name.

harvey wall/barrier (voodoo chili), Friday, 11 January 2019 16:34 (ten months ago) link

Thunder! Feel the thunder! STOMP STOMP STOMP! literally music for ages 6-12

rip van wanko, Friday, 11 January 2019 16:43 (ten months ago) link

Except surely ages 6-12 have made it about farting, so small point for the youth of America
