in parodies for "We Are Young."
From the Article"I get an e-mail about every other day being like, 'You've gotta see this parody.' [And] I'm not going to go Coolio on the situation and say I'm not into parodies, but I'm going to say, chances are, it's not funny," frontman Nate Ruess said. "Maybe I have a high standard for what's funny, but I'm just going to go with 'We Are Not Young,' you probably are not funny. Like, that level of comedy that I just did was the exact same level of comedy that they're doing." 158 Comments -
Our interview with
can be found
From the InterviewI know that feeling really well, of feeling like a band who’s my little secret and then having them sort of get taken away from me in a way. I understand that feeling, but I would hope that our fans who have been around for a while are still happy for us and still like the music we’re writing. We’re making the same songs and doing the same things with the integrity we’ve always had. 12 Comments -

The AV Club
sat down with Nate from
fun. to talk
about their new fame.
From the InterviewI personally didn’t, because when I was 20 and thought that I had a song that could have been big and didn’t, I just began to wonder how a hit song actually works, and figured that it could never work for me. Writing “We Are Young,” it was like “Okay, this is catchy,” but I couldn’t imagine it taking off in such a massive way. Even the day after Jeff and I had recorded it and sent it to everybody and the head of our label, he freaked out over it, and I thought it was cool, but had no idea.

were recently profiled in the
New York Times
From the Article“I started falling in love with the Drake album and the Kanye album, and I thought, that’s really theatrical, and it’s hip-hop music, and I make really theatrical music,” Mr. Ruess said. “Why can’t I add a hip-hop element?” He said his idea was “to take that ’70s songwriting style but modernize it a little bit more.” Submitted by BensonHedges 40 Comments -
first rock band in more
than a decade to send a debut Billboard Hot 100 hit to number one.
From the ArticleWith its coronation, fun. becomes the first multi-member rock band to conquer the Hot 100 with its first entry on the chart since Nickelback arrived with its four-week No. 1 "How You Remind Me" in December 2001/January 2002. The song went on to become Billboard's top title of 2002. (Electronic/alternative act Owl City ruled the Hot 100 with debut single "Fireflies" in 2009, but the name served as an alias for its only member, Adam Young). 114 Comments -
