Sounders Fans in Aggro-Rock Debacle



How is it that the Emerald City Supporters were asked to sing on a song by the only Seattle band from the 90's that was actually horrible? No love from 7 Year Bitch? Soundgarden is reuniting, doesn't Chris Cornell need some backup? What about the Melvins? Alice in Chains need a singer don't they? TAD can't holler at anyone?

Personally I am disappointed. Not with Grammatrain and certainly not with the ECS but with the myriad of actual cool bands who could have done this but are probably to cool to do this. Y'all missed an opportunity.

Christian rock will really scare off the competition.

yeah. why not hold out for a Fastbacks video?

i think the sounders supporters have veered off into "cult" land. the whole "football is my religion" thing is supposed to be a METAPHOR.

wake me up when they are in a pretty girls make graves video.

Could've been even worse given the local habit of trotting out The Kingsmen and 'Louie, Louie.'

Personally would've loved to see Sir Mix-a-lot. 'Posse on Broadway' is full of possibilities...

That sounds great. Not that limp wristed faggy cold play style shite you always post on the site.

HA. Thanks Kevin for proving that there are indeed people that enjoy this "radio rock". I was convinced there weren't.

WOW, its great to see how sounder fans are choreographed and orchestrated into everything they do, chants songs, when to clap, etc. aces

"the only Seattle band from the 90's that was actually horrible"...except for the other 99% that were also horrible, too.

Curious as to whether knowing the band name caused this little 'debacle' in the first place. I suspect that if it was some unsigned band, people wouldn't make such a fuss.

The song is pretty cool! I went to their site and listened to one of their songs and they aren't bad at all. It appears they aren't a christian band anymore too, so that's a plus lol.
