    It sounds like a song from The Killers

    It actually is good

  • Reply Kayla King November 13, 2019 at 10:17 am

    They sound like a bad cover band.

  • Reply DHScherocha November 13, 2019 at 11:15 am

    Pretty decent song. Not a huge fan of the band but Hang Me Up To Dry is another really solid song.

    Not sure why so many dislikes. Wrong demographic.

  • Reply Kaseem Pyppe! November 13, 2019 at 11:31 am

    How can so many people dislike this? I absolutely love Cold War Kids in general, but I'd say this is definitely one of their best songs of late, I like the new album and the more funky-bluesy approach, it's a good change of direction.

  • Reply Ava Vikman November 13, 2019 at 11:50 am

    I honestly love the music that Cold War Kids puts out though I have to admit that their lead singer had some of the worst stage presence I have ever seen. He just uncomfortably punches his fists around any time he doesn't have lyrics.

  • Reply Guy Man November 13, 2019 at 12:06 pm

    Long, treacherous walk from problem to solution, even with companions. How can we change that?

  • Reply Igor Schmidlapp November 13, 2019 at 12:09 pm

    I usually only listen to 4-album trilogies… ;-P Stephen is practicing a new character, "Mr. Redundant"… ;-P

    God the 80's were great. Talking Heads – Burning Down the House, Shriekback – All Lined Up, The The – Infected, Queen – Another One Bites the Dust.

    Good lyrics..

  • Reply The Heart Of A Blackbird November 13, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    When did this band become funk/RnB? It plays like a bunch of white guys who just discovered James Brown.

  • Reply Tollo Tollo November 13, 2019 at 3:14 pm

    A song complaining about people complaining.

    Boomer Anthem.

    they've got a point

    They kinda have a Bowie vibe – I’m digging it

  • Reply TheCcormier2 November 13, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    That bass player looks like it’s his first time holding a bass.

    Wow! This group is as untalented as Colbert is!

  • Reply Sadiq Mohamed November 13, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Never hear of them before, but this was OK, and I will have to look up there stuff. Slightly retro, bouncy and interesting lyrics.

    The intro reminds me of a 15 year old French song… https://youtu.be/TQV-0fwwCQM

    They look like a bunch of friends from high school that had not seen each other in years and got the idea hay lest be in a band together.

    tv show performances are seldom good. so i will check them out. but i really felt like they were an ultra discount version of rage against the machine. like, disney-fied version.

    I clicked because from the thumbnail I thought that the singer was El-P, but I don't regret satisfying my curiosity, it's a pretty good song.

  • Reply Joe Harte November 14, 2019 at 12:26 am

    Nope, sorry. Sounds like it was written by a committee.

  • Reply JuanMoreGame November 14, 2019 at 3:19 am

    Yeah good stuff I like ,could do with a lead break maybe in the vein of Tom Morello's Rage leads.

    I thought the singer was Badger from Breaking Bad for a minute.

  • Reply Max November 14, 2019 at 4:43 pm

    I've never heard of these guys, but I think they're awesome.

  • Reply Stevie Stephens November 14, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    Only thing I'd change about this song is the lead singer. I just think a different voice would work better. Not that he's bad. Just not right for this song. the band and music is awesome.
