    Is Against the Current any good?

    This being the first thing I've heard from them, I clicked on their music video for Paralyzed and enjoyed it. I'd recommend it but nothing too different from pop rock band with a girl singer.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Nice cover.

    So overhyped then? Costanza is also always basically a pinup girl in Kerrang and Rock Sound. That's just how they make her out to look, and I never see the rest of the band.

    Oh, that's a shame. Maybe I'm out of the loop but I'd never heard of the band or her. Those two videos literally mark my introduction to them lol. She is a looker though, so I get the Pin up thing I suppose but the band seems good. They all deserve the spotlight.

    Maybe it makes me sound old, but I am so sick of youtube covers that simply slow the song down for the sake of making it more "emotional," there's nothing artistically that excites me about the changes here

    Great cover, but unfortunately it sounds too close to the original, which I just can't stand heh.

    I won't say anything about their music because I'd be too biased, but their shows are extremely entertaining and they seem to be really nice people.

    This is much, much better than I was expecting. Could maybe have done to differentiate itself from the original a bit more but still excellent.

    Yeah, it's a band. Meaning a group of people. lol it's always funny when they focus on one member. Like Oli. Or Kellin. I admire bands that all members are beloved in equal measure.

    Cool! Playing an itty bitty show near me soon so I'll check it out.

    I can't get over her last name being Costanza. That name enters my head and all I visualize is...[​IMG]

    Yep! No Doubt, Paramore and Hales all ring a bell lol. Maybe it's just a thing that bands with femae singers get roped into?

    I like the original, and as others have said, this is very similar but slightly more boring.

    I may be biased but I loved Key on this and the violin was on point.

    They don't do anything new but if you like catchy pop rock they're quite good

    Super enjoyable. Thought it was a really good cover.

    Definitely, and it's happening w/ the male singers too being made into sex gods. And I wonder if it creates animosity. Oli Sykes is of particular interest of me, you've got this gorgeous guy screaming, destroying tables, and creating chaos. It's a real point of fascination. AND, this is weird but even my parents have pointed it out, you've got attractive guys in heavy bands now, a change from yesteryear. Like the guys in Parkway Drive, Keith Buckley, Pierce the Veil. Very interesting trend, sorry for the rant. :eh:

    Agree, and Chrissy has talked a lot about how much it bothers her when people act like she's a solo act.

    I'll never ever understand the appeal of Yellowcard.
