Oh, And We Hate Music Too. MGMT Performed A New “Song” On Letterman

23 Aug

 

What just happened?  Why is Andrew VanWyngarden dressed like a cave man Elton John?  Why is he smacking a giant cowbell?  Why are they playing this boring and overly repetitive song on national television?  Why does it suck so bad?  Oh, that’s right, I forgot; I wouldn’t “get” it.  Of course!  Silly me!  But let me give it my best shot nonetheless.  Maybe the whole point of the song is to be mindless and droning, thereby illustrating that our lives are monotonous and unavailing.  Clever enough.  But here’s an idea; if you want to sell records, don’t make bad songs.  

However, I really did enjoy that cringe-worthy pause after the end of the sone before the audience started to awkwardly clap.

"I'd appreciate your input." - The Bloodhound Gang's "The Bad Touch."
