I bought Aim and Ignite a long time ago when I read in some magazine that they were inspired by XTC's Skylarking. (Browsed the magazine in Hollister while I was waiting for my daughter.) Never heard the new album.

I agree, but then again, I don't listen to the radio.

I like the song. It's catchy, sounds good. Young Blood covers similar territory and is a better song but I can deal with two.

(alright so it's a remix but I was actively listening to it when I clicked this thread.)

That said both are pretty played out by this point. I also don't like the rest of that Fun. album. This shit evens out my love of thrash, black and death metal

100% agree. I'm actually shocked at how poor the two fun. albums are in comparison. The same goes for Aaron Perrino (of The Sheila Divine and the abysmal Dear Leader).

Fun.'s guitarist, Jack Antonoff, is the lead singer in another band called Steel Train. It is infinitely better.
