OF MICE & MEN’S Aaron Pauley “We Knowingly Do Some Stuff Thats Gonna Get The Haters Talking”

 

Since their genesis in 2009, Of Mice & Men have become one of the biggest names in the music industry fusing sugary-sweet melodies, captivating hooks, and aggressive, in-your-face energy.  The band released their self-titled debut album in 2010, gaining notoriety with hits like “Second & Sebring” and “Those In Glass Houses”.  Of Mice & Men gained momentum with the success of their sophomore album ‘The Flood’, and used that momentum to cement the Of Mice & Men name into history with the release of 2014’s ‘Restoring Force’ which has come to be known by fans as arguably the band’s “best” album.  With over 100 million cumulative streams, ‘Restoring Force’ packed a heavy arsenal with numbers like “Feels Like Forever”, “Would You Still Be There”, and “Bones Exposed” and made its way all the way to #4 on the Billboard Top 200.  The guys followed up the successful album with another success, 2016’s ‘Cold World’ which sold 19,000 copies in its first week and appeared at #20 on the Billboard Top 200 in the U.S.  ‘Cold World’ would become the last album to feature long-time frontman, Austin Carlile.

fleaLAL

Last night the sports world bid farewell to the LA Lakers 20 year veteran Kobe Bryant. Prior to the game Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea performed the national anthem. Some critics are saying that Flea butchered the song. Fox Sports Nick Schwartz had this to say “the Lakers may wish they had picked a different artist to perform the national anthem. Lakers megafan Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers kicked off the night with an inventive bass-only version of The Star-Spangled Banner, and was quickly roasted on Twitter for what some fans are calling the worst national anthem of all time.” We do have to admit it’s a very unique version of the song. Flea has said afterwards “I rocked that shit.” Judge for yourself, and let us know what you think on Facebook! Continue reading
