Cobra Starship Are Everywhere That You Go

Dec 3rd, 2008 // 9 Comments


In the wake of my continual pondering over whether or not Chinese Democracy is the Snakes On A Plane of music in 2008—in that its endless discussion on the Internet far outweighed its commercial success, although then again Snakes didn’t have the whole issue of a not-all-that-excited retail outlet to further block its path toward profitability—here’s the new video by Cobra Starship, whose theme song for the Samuel L. Jackson-and-pythons flick can still Velcro itself to my cranium now and again. “Kiss My Sass” is a little herky-jerky slice of synth pop with lots of attitude (and a cute video to match), and I swear if someone marketed this song to bloggers under a different name it would shoot up the Hype Machine like that.

    “and I swear if someone marketed this song to bloggers under a different name it would shoot up the Hype Machine like that.”

    Totally agree.

    @2ironic4u: i wonder if we could try this as an experiment…

    @Maura Johnston: Say, “This is Ivy League?”

    (I realize it’s only their side project, but it’s pretty consciously bloggy.)

    Release this on a Swedish label with a Tough Alliance/Knife remix, and voila, blog love.

    @Maura Johnston: That could work. A radio station in Chicago (Q101, the local “modern rock” station) did something like that. They played a song but didn’t say what band is was by and asked for listener feedback. The feedback was generally pretty positive. The station then revealed that the mystery band was Hanson.

    I think I would like this song a lot better if I never had to listen to the dude’s voice again. It’s like shooting white-hot cheese whiz directly into my skull. Instrumentals, please?

    I know it’s really cool to hate these guys, but I think they’re adorable, and they make some damn catchy songs, and yes, the song might get more attention if people didn’t know the artist. And I’d rather listen to them than Panda Bear any day.
