You can consider it extinguished:

That’s…that’s not a parody song. Everyone involved was earnestly and deliberately doing all those things in a wholly un-ironic manner.

It’s official: I hate youth culture.

Once again, blame can be placed squarely on Dustin.

    Quoteth Wikipedia:

    Metal Edge Magazine has called brokeNCYDE “fucking horrendous”.[10] Thrash Magazine has called them “a mockery to the world of music”.[11] Another metal magazine, Decibel, has repeatedly made fun of the band, mentioning them in a interview with the group Big Business, and once ironically referring to then as their “favorite screamo-crunk band”. British commentator Warren Ellis calls brokeNCYDE’s “Freaxxx” music video “a near-perfect snapshot of everything that’s shit about this point in the culture”.[12] Says August Brown of the Los Angeles Times, “The ‘Albucrazy’-based band has done for MySpace emo what some think Soulja Boy did for hip-hop: turn their career into a kind of macro-performance art that exists so far beyond the tropes of irony and sincerity that to ask ‘are they kidding?’ is like trying to peel an onion to get to a perceived central core that, in the end, does not exist and renders all attempts to reassemble the pieces futile.”[13]

    there has to be SOMETHING slightly tongue-in-cheek about this.. right? i mean.. the pig. they have a guy in a pig suit.
    that has to mean they aren’t taking themselves seriously.

    …Right, guys?

    Wow, that’s poetry…
    “Let’s get freaky now, let’s get fucking freaky now.”
    …like Michael Bay is cinema.

    Honestly… I feel sick to my stomach now.
    And I didnt even make it to the end.

    I was about to give up when I read Bob’s comment about the pig suit, so I stuck around for that. But I have to admit I’m watching it without the volume turned on.

    I love how they kept losing motivation thruout the video. The dancers/singers kept slowing down and stoping what they were doing. Almost as if the making of the video was sucking their will to live.

    I’m relatively certain that the making of this video not only sucked the life out of all those extras, but indeed the entire neighborhood it was filmed in.

    Speaking of – did anyone else think that that was one hell of a suburban setting for this kind of thing? I kept waiting for some just-home-from-work banker to come out and yell at the kids for playing in the street.

    I wonder what a screamo scream sounds like through an autotuner…

  • Just Plain Bob

    I was noticing the suburbia too, alpha. i kept picturing some poor guy trying to mow his lawn and getting sonically assaulted.
