Of Montreal Sucks 

Although it saddens me when I hear a song I like attached to a television commercial, I can sympathize with the motive, especially when it's an indie band that can use the money, and certainly deserves more money than they've made, and especially when the company isn't especially evil--e.g. (w/r/t all of the above) The New Pornographers' "The Laws Have Changed" attached to the University of Phoenix ad.

But then there's this other shit. I could be crazy, but didn't The Shins sell a song to fucking McDonalds?

And now, Of Montreal...

Not only did they sell their impossibly catchy song from The Sunlandic Twins, "Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games," to Outback Steakhouse, a major GOP contributor...

...but they re-recorded it (or permitted others to re-record it) with special new lyrics not only praising the virtues of OS, but promoting OS as the perfect place to take Mom on Mother's Day!

...and their new album, Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?, so far as I can tell, is pretentious, silly and annoying. Fuck this band.
