Wow, I didn’t read to the end of the article, and see that this very fact was mentioned! And that there was an entire Popmatters article about it. It’s so true though!

Along with Matchbox 20′s “Yourself or Someone Like You” and Natalie Merchant’s “Tigerlily”, I believe that if you are to visit any used CD store or thrift store or garage sale in America, you will find at least two copies of Monster.

Any internet music listicle that reps “Grace Kelly With Wings” is okay by me.

If you would’ve found me listening to “Who Will Cut Our Hair” on my Discman back in 2003 and told me that, eleven years in the future, the Unicorns would be playing three shows at the Barclay’s center, I would’ve said, “Awesome. I KNEW they’d become the biggest band in North America.” And then I’d say, “WTF is the Barclay’s Center?”

I hear they’re forgoing effects pedals and will distort the bass guitar purely through spite.

This really goes without saying by now, but holy shit can Dave Grohl pound a drum.

Count me among the fervent. 16 year old me would’ve lost his mind over the idea that Failure would release new music 17 years later, but here we are. My mind is not quite lost, but I’m happy to hear them recording again. And it sounds about right considering where their paths led them through the years. I’ll take it.

But also it’s not, at all.

It’s like Remission meets Night Ranger. I’ll take it.
