New Phish Single, LOL!

As an old fan who stopped paying attention after New Years in the Everglades, all I have to say is you'll soon be hearing America's favorite jamband on your local adult contemporary station.

Ha, serves these ****ers right for going gay.

It's called The Connection and can be streamed on Rhapsody.

Serves them right? That's usually a term reserved for something malign that happens to someone, not something good (for them.)


More airplay = more money for them.

They don't need shit as far as money is concerned. But alienating the fanbase that created their success is proabably a good way to get a Behind the Music special.

They won't be alienating their whole fan base, and they will be gaining new listeners by playing to a different crowd. It's their music, let them do what they want with it. I don't even listen to phish, I've never heard one song, but I'm sure the real fans will still stick around and support their favorite band through whatever period they go through. If you don't like the new music, just don't listen, no reason to go shit on them.

Not only that, but Phish has been on the radio since (at least) the Billy Breathes album, which was way back in 1996. Unless they've decided to give up being a jam band and instead be a top 40 pop band, I don't see this alienating any fans.

... and people were saying the same things when Blly Breathes came out - they've sold out, they're going to alienate the "true fans" (whatever that means), the new style is going to attract a lot of people that shouldn't be at a Phish show, etc. There was no huge change then and there won't be one now. Actually, I think I'd prefer them to attract a more mature crowd instead of some of the people that I've seen on tour over the past few years.

So no one has actually heard this song. Billy Breathes was a rock album, this song is cookie cutter adult contemporary, more like john tesh than matchbox 20. But enjoy your sense of false hope. I don't think they are selling out, just going gay. They on't gain a new fanbase, just lose their old one.

oh custom, it is the new popular thing to say with teens:

You are so gay dude! (You are so stupid dude!)

That was so gay dude! (That was dumb dude!)

How gay are you dude! (How dumb/crazy are you dude!)

Don't be gay dude! (Don't be dumb dude!)

Usually means dumb, stupid, et al with the new teenage crowd...blah blah blah.

Thanks, concience.

I thought they sound like the Village People now. Oh well.

I think I'm getting old.
