    Gabe Saporta talked with Alt. Press about the ten year anniversary of Cobra Starship’s Hot Mess.

    “Nice Guys Finish Last” was inspired by Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” which is one of the best songs in the last 20 years. It was inspired by that a little bit, and we had to give publishing to the guys who wrote “Toxic” for that song. It’s also about the only job I ever had, which was when I was 17. I worked for my next-door neighbor who was like an old rock ’n’ roller and hired me to do internet stuff for him because I was just a young kid who knew the internet. He just hired me to hang out, and he was just a crazy, obnoxious guy who totally would not be able to exist in today’s universe. But he literally said that to me. He told me that, “Yeah, just treat girls like shit, and they’ll stick to you—stick to the bottom of your shoe.” He literally said that, and I put that into a song, and it sings really nice in the song.

    "Fold Your Hands Child" is a great song but the rest of the record is lol

    Nice Guys Finish Last is more Womanizer than Toxic

    Also, love this band and album.

    It’s not as good as the first two, but there’s some solid stuff on it.

    Came out at such a weird time in my life

    He had enough money to not have a job since he was 17? Didnt think Midtown or Cobra could keep him out of work that long.

    I've kind of been in the mood for a new Cobra album -- something more like Viva -- but it seems like Gabe is done with all that.

    You have no idea how huge Cobra was.
