What songs do you want to see become singles for Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace?
I've taken out Hammerhead and Your Gonna Go Far Kid (I think it's pretty certain that it will be a single).
May have been done before but it's time to update.
And im bored.
:D

Stuff Is Messed Up is on its way to being the third single. I've lurked around here and I saw people saying stuff about it being the most played.

I personally think that if they go for a nice, slow-paced single like Kristy or A Lot Like Me, that would get a shitload of attention and they'd be real popular. It would also be different for them and that's what they need to do at this point, try something different.

EDIT: Rock Bottom is such an awesome song and I really hope they put that out there as well!

I only voted Nothingtown. I really can't see there being anymore than 3 singles. I may be wrong.... but that rarely happens. ;) :p

We have 1, nearly 2 out. And for some reason I can't see Nothingtown being a single - no real reason why, but just a hunch. I also really love Rock Bottom and it doesn't get nearly enough recognition that it deserves.

Definitly.
A Lot Like Me, may not be their best song on the album (IMO) but it would be a good single.

I think there are a few songs on there, that could have been really amazing and hard hitting, but they went a little overboard on the editing... it lost some of the rawness...

I still vote A Lot Like Me as the next one. Its very radio friendly I think.

A lot like me. Not my favorite, but it's very catchy. I've showed it to a alot of ppl and everyone think it's awesome. Even my metalhead friends say that

I voted for Half-Truism, A Lot Like Me and Kristy. Though, Nothingtown and some others would probably be good as singles too. It's just that I can't decide. :)

I just hope they're getting out a really, REALLY KICKASS musicvideo for YGGFK. A real musicvideo that people will notice and say; "damn, that's good man!". I've seen the new musicvideo from Metallica, The Day That Never Comes, and damn, that's a cool video and song.

Well... I don't hope JUST for a music video for YGGFK, but I also hope on more singles and videos. At least one more, the album is absolutely good enough for three singles.

bighead384
09-24-2008, 12:32 PM
What are they going to do, release the YGGFK video after radio stations are done playing it and they want another single to play? That would end up forcing their 2nd and 3rd singles compete with each other. Radio stations have been playing YGGFK since July. Freaking October is right around the corner.

I really don't think there's going to be a YGGFK video. If there is, it better be ready in like a week.

I could be wrong about this, but can anyone tell me an instance where a video was released after the single was already well past it's prime on radio and off the charts?

09-24-2008, 12:33 PM
^Definitely. I voted Half-Truism, A Lot Like Me, and Fix You, but I completely forgot about Nothingtown, which would make a perfect third single (as would "Kristy" but I don't want that). The thing I love about this album is that it's full of single-worthy songs.

Well. But YGGFK hasn't been officially released as second single, have it?

And yeah, I don't understand what they're doing either. Hopefully they have a good plan (evil one, mouhahah). ...go KICKASS video for YGGFK! ...and more single. =)

I really don't think it matters. It's going to fall off the charts and radio play in about a month. And they haven't even begun to shoot the video as far as we know.

I'm still holding onto the idea that the video will be released sometime before the Japanese tour. The Hammerhead video seemed to arrive unexpectedly.

randman21
09-24-2008, 07:07 PM
Except that the Hammerhead video was out soon after the single, right? I hate to think like this, but videos are not what they used to be. The music industry is changing, and if they--or the record company--feel like they won't get something out of the cost it takes to make one, there might not be a You're Gonna Go Far, Kid video.

I dunno. MTV may not be playing videos anymore, but they sure as Hell are getting millions upon millions of plays on youtube. I know personally, that's where i see a good 99% of my music videos...

Exactly, videos are now for online promotion. You'll get exponentially more views on youtube or myspace then you would on trl.

As to the original question of the thread, i'd like to see either Half-Truism, Kristy, or Nothingtown (although i may be in the minority on this last one).

That's probably true to an extent, but with youtube, you basically only see what you search for. Don't you think that makes it drastically different from videos being played on MTV or wherever else on TV as far as exposure goes?

Thomas
09-25-2008, 01:26 PM
Not really. Youtube has "recommended for you" and "related video" searches, which have caused me to watch quite a few videos. You are right to an extent, but if a video is getting a lot of play online, more and more people are gonna see it.

Half-Truism, Nothingtown and Stuff Is Messed Up will be the next singles!

If there is one that I really wanna see single is Half-Truism. The first time I heard the album, it was my favorite and it still is. it's so awesome, and it would be cool to see a video of it, hopefully not one like hammerhead, and where you can see the band a bit (not during the whole video though).

Otherwise, yeah stuff is messed up, which I didn't used to like that much would be cool too. And if they show like a few seconds of each thing they mention in the song, in the music video, or like, a shot where you see a kid watching "pimp my ride" or other stuff or whatever.

And Nothingtown would be cool too. I'd kinda like the band to be in that music video, and they'd have to be in a crappy town for the song lol... what about hum... fayetteville? although they'd probably go for anywhere in orange county/california...
