I never considered myself a BMTH fan until this album. Ive liked a few songs here and there but this whole album is incredible. Will likely be on my top 10 albums of the year. This new song is the only one like it on the album, its pretty nu-metal sounding but within the context of the album, I enjoy it. It kinda reminds me of Blacklist from the last album. Most of the album is more like Shadow Moses. This album is a monster.
good to hear :)
edit - Also, seems this song isn't suppose to be taken too serious.
Oli: “It started off with the lyrics! I came downstairs one morning and said to Jordan, ‘I’ve just come up with the most nu metal mosher lyrics of all time!’ Ha ha ha! He was like, ‘What are you talking about?’, so I went, ‘Middle fingers up, if you don’t give a fuck!’, and we both laughed.” It was almost a joke, like we were never gonna do it, but as we wrote it I started to find the lyrics to not make it cheesy. It about ‘Slacktivists’; online people that just talk shit on Twitter, and ‘Like this if you want to get Obama to die’ or whatever. It’s loads of shit; people think they’re making a difference nowadays just because they’re sat on their fat arses with ill-informed ‘facts’. They think they know everything and that they’re making a difference, and it’s bullshit.
“So the lyrics to this one are quite sarcastic, but if you want to make a difference, you have to do more than just sit at your computer. It’s not saying ‘Don’t care about the world’, it’s saying, ‘Don’t think you care about the world and that you’re better than people if you’re doing fuck all’. If you really believe in all that, you’ve got to get up and do more.”
