Now, bastards.. go record a new album already


I'd rather get a new Street Sweeper record, honestly. Or an album with Boots & Zach on it would be nice.

Meh, good album. But the drums and bass did nothing for me, maybe it was the production i dunno, but i'd waaaay prefer to hear zach screaming over thsoe guitars

Actually the drummer on SSSC is way better than Rage's drummer, who I always felt was kinda overwhelming... BUT, they have way different vibes. The Street Sweeper stuff is way more fun, where as the Rage stuff always had this teen angst thing going on, especially on the first record. I dunno. Rage is like... The Beatles of doing rocky rap music. Can't hate on them. I think this charts thing is all bullshit, but whatever gets Zach to actually put out records is a good thing I guess, if it ends up equating to that.

Well, the first street sweeper, Tom did all the music before boots was even signed on as a rapper... the only thing he didn't do was the drums, that was the guy from Galactic... The new stuff they are working on, I get the impression is more of a group effort, and I think it'll be a better album as a result.

I think people are missing the point. This isn't "taking down corporations" or just a "practical joke," either. If anything, this proves how powerful social networking has become. Some guy sat at home on his computer and started a facebook group which lead to a song being not only no. 1 in the UK, but the XMAS no. 1. 500,000 songs were sold and over 70,000 ($115,000) was raised for charity. This was using social networking to it's full potential and could be a trend for the future. We no longer need vast amounts of money to produce television, radio or film to reach the masses, we can do it free from our own bedroom. Some guy just captured worldwide attention and raised a fair sum of money for charity....what have you done this xmas?

Regardless of what you think of the song, the band, or the record label, if some ordinary joe can take on a multi-media mogul like Simon Cowel and WIN, then this could very well be a major turning point for music and beyond. Ok so this was just some stupid chart battle, but what's to say we can't use this for important issues or politics?

And aside from all that, surely as music fans you can appreciate a campaign that encourages people to download music legally?

I'm down if you are.

Just cover the pictures of our kids on your nightstand, so no one recognizes them at school.

It was cool and all that, but to be fair a lot of people didn't find out about it from the internet, they found out from the news reports on TV and in newspapers. Sure the ball got rolling on facebook, but to say it's an example of how this can all happen without big media ain't strictly true..

I don't understand how people don't think this is badass (cue in "Debbie Downer" womp sound). This is an old ass song from a group that, whether "deep" or not, has stood for anti-govt/anti-establishment. Through social networking, one dude (not a corporate entity), was able to inspire people to unseat the current pop hit with a song that came out in 1992. When I first heard about it, I was rooting for them, but thought nah...no way in hell they are pulling this off. Pretty incredible, really.

Think about what other things people could accomplish if they put their minds to it.
