I hate OK Go.

Alright, I'm going to be completely honest here. I paid money to see OK Go in concert. Twice. In the same year. Did I mention this was when they were touring with The Donnas? (Let's not start on The Donnas.)

Anyway. The point is that these concerts were back in 2003, when I was a sophomore in college. This was when I was under the impression that anything not played on MTV was "indie rock". Oh, how confused I was. It didn't take me much longer to figure it out and look back on the me from three weeks before with an older, more mature understanding that everyone's gotta grow up and learn from his mistakes.

The OK Go of today is essentially the same band as the OK Go of 2003. They're basically rip-offs of shitty Weezer. (Or is shitty Weezer a rip-off of OK Go? Discuss amongst yourselves.) They avoid writing intelligent "fun" music, instead write songs like "You're So Damn Hot" and dress funny. And that bald guy shaves weird designs into his facial hair. What a cut-up!

And now they make those stupid videos where they dance funny. I'll admit that they are clever enough to trick most of America's white people under the age of twenty-five into thinking that means they make good music, but it's not going to work on me. Nice try, dudes.

they may make sub-par tunes, but seriously - that music video on the treadmills is brilliant.

also, you should know that we tried to make a hate blog too (since the new awesome can just be too positive sometimes) but you are pulling yours together a lot better than we are
