Deathstars – Synthetic Generation

Found these guys while listening to They remind me of Rammstein, Nightwish, and Laibach. Apparently I have a thing for European, trashcan-lid banging bands.

From Wikipedia:

Deathstars are a Swedish gothic metal band who originally formed in Stockholm in January 2000. They are noted for their dark horror-themed lyrics, pessimistic and misanthropic social commentary, distinctive trademark face paint and stage uniforms.

DEATHSTARS – Death Dies Hard

Will the Record Industry Die Already?

I am so sick of the zombie youtube videos on my site.

You know the ones, I post a cool song on my blog then three weeks later the video disappears and I get another “This video has been removed…” blah blah blah. Every time I see this I can imagine a room full of old school record execs wringing their hands and twirling their mustaches saying “HAHAHA! We stopped another fan from promoting our artists for free!” Everyone nods and stomps canes on the ground.

None of them realize they just spent money to STOP someone from getting the word out about an artist or song. Isn’t that advertising in reverse?

So here’s my suggestion for the new youtube message when a video is pulled:

The Saturdays – Just Can’t Get Enough

Love this song. The Saturdays replaced the Depeche Mode depression with sexy!

Rammstein – Du Hast

I always have some Rammstein kicking around on my MP3 player. Finally “Du Hast” is on Guitar Hero 5 WHOO! Can’t wait to play it!

Ramstein – Du Hast

Du Hast – Guitar Hero 5 – Expert Guitar/Drums – NEW GAMEPLAY!!!!!

Paramore – That’s What You Get

Paramore is a really fun band that sound great on their official tracks, live and acoustically.

(Edit: Another example of a stupid music company. That’s what you get got pulled for copyright. They don’t like free advertising. DUH! So here’s Crushcrushcrush instead.)

The White Tie Affair – Candle (Sick and Tired)

I’m making up for not posting for a while by posting a lot. This song has a special place for me because I would sing it to my son Seth when he was in the NICU after being born 5 weeks premature (He’s doing great).

Cobra Starship – Good Girls Go Bad

These guys consistently put out great music. This is their latest. GO BUY IT!

Wolfsheim – Find You’re Here

Cool German pop-synth band. Has a really cool 80s vibe to it. Very Pet Shop Boys. Enjoy!

I actually wanted to feature the song Approaching LightSpeed but I couldn’t find an offical video.
