Tiro de Gracia was actually a very popular band here in Chile back in the 90s. They only released that one album until a reunion many years later.

The dudes in the video are actually highschool age. It's quite commendable.

EDIT: I was wrong, they did more stuff! Not that anyone cared apparently? :P

I believe it. Not just the fact that they look young, but they also look like they are having a good time! Imagine that.

Ratings because I have time now!

L7 - Fuel My Fire - Fun! Punky. Liked it a fair bit.

Tiro de Gracia - El Juego Verdadero - My pick. I know you guys can't understand the lyrics (they're not half bad!) I like it, it reminds me of school. The clip is so cheaply made too, it adds to the feel.

Roxette - The Look - Good, simple fun.

Modest Mouse - Tundra/Desert - Don't get the hate. Not too bad. Cacophonous, yes, but done well enough, right? Like, it has more value than OK Go.

OK Go - You're So Damn Hot - Fun, likable pop. Inoffensive. Don't get the hate either.

F-Zero GX [OST] - Feel Our Pain (Fire Field) - Ahh the rush of memories. Low rated because I think it's an unoriginal pick.

Nothing But Thieves - Excuse Me - Not too awful, but I disliked it. Still decent pop.

Bruce Soord with Jonas Renkse - Frozen North - Not my thing. Still could finish it.

잠비나이 - connection - Interesting but it dragged on a bit too much for me. Kinda boring. But relaxing!

York feat. Angelina-Ice Flowers - Too poppy and windy for me. Felt like something out of a bad chick flick.

I wasn't a fan of the chorus, which is huge in pop. Still, it was less hate, and more that it was the only song that had a negative, albeit a subjective negative. The three above it (Ice Flowers , Fire Field, and The Look) were all firmly in neutral territory.

I'm basically to the point where years of listening to european metal, jpop, and modest mouse (harharhar) have trained me to the point where i really don't need to understand the words to enjoy a song. That's not to say lyrics don't matter. Clever lyrics can greatly enhance a song- but not being able to understand the song doesn't hurt it if it still has a good beat and atmosphere (which this one did).

The problem with the song was that it literally hurt my ears, but partly for Draggy's amusement, I may have overstated my hate for it in a hyperbolic sort of way. Apologies.

(I'd still put it last)

Yeah I actually quite like this. I've heard it before out and about.

...from you? For real? Like you're not trying to be ironic or something? I can't take someone who thinks Kanye West and Justin Bieber are worthy of genuine respect seriously when it comes to musical taste. I recall that your previous attempts to get us into popcorn music failed spectacularly. There's a reason no one here gives a crumpets about the modern mainstream music industry.
