Since they couldn't just outright buy Spotify ( a la Beats, LaLa) they tried to sweep its legs out from under it. Sidenote: Remember LaLa guys? FWIW, I feel like their model created the fairest environment for both artists and fans. But Apple bought them so they could shut them down and launch Ping, which is a thing we all forgot about before it even started. Lala Wiki article:

This makes my blood boil. Tennis should be getting paid for the use of their song. Sidenote: Nothing shameful about licensing your music! It's a revenue stream that works for a lot of great artists and often a necessary one considering the current difficulties of other revenue streams.

Holy shit, what a thread. And I've only read half of it. What a way to make us think about the purpose and meaning behind band names.

Every aspiring band should be so lucky to have press like this. Was there a thank you note included in that cease and desist letter?

Man I live right around the corner from Supreme in LA, and I see folks line up around the block all the time for whatever the new thing is. This is the first time I'll actually know what everyone's waiting for.

If you had put subtitles under that video, I would assumed she was speaking Swedish and believed whatever they said.

February 2, 2015 on Watch Megan James Sing Purity Ring’s New Single “Push Pull” Backwards
This band that became famous because they acted like teenagers (and captured the fun and frustration of being a teenager) has never really stopped acting like teenagers. Only now they're pushing 40 and it's not funny, nor do they really have a sense of what it's like being a teenager anymore. It's sad to see a band go down like this because I think if they'd managed their legacy a little bit, we might be talking about their importance and impact as one of the last torch bearers of rock's dominance over pop culture. Hell, the small corner of pop radio that makes room for rock is playing Fall Out Boy, who can thank bands like Blink-182 for paving the way for them.

Also, they just borrowed some of the exact sounds from the original--horns, "doh doh" vocal sample and the "ooh"--which is like, 3/4 of the song.

Spencer Tweedy's drumming is pretty excellent. That part starting around 4:30 is no kids stuff. This is like when Ken Griffey and Ken Griffey Jr. batted next to each other in Seattle.
