banging on shit
The Arcade Fire is the #1 band in the world at 'emotionally banging on shit.' This act of 'banging on shit' really endears the band to mainstream audiences. The Ginger Bro in the Arcade fire is probably the most famous bro who 'bangs on shit' in all of indie. However, Win Butler's little brother Will has a lot of rage and resentment 4 his brother deep within him, and 'banging on shit' is perhaps the only way 4 him 2 let that pain and anger escape.
As u can see in this picture, he is banging on a drum, running around like a crazy man. You have to assume that he is pretending the drum is Win Butler's face, and every time he bangs it, he is taking out some of his anger on the drum.
BANG = "WHY RU MORE FAMOUS THAN ME?"
BANG = "WHY DID U GET REGINE?"
BANG = "WHY DID U GET A COOLER HAIRCUT THAN ME?"
BANG = "WHY ARE U BETTER AT BSKTBALL THAN ME?"
BANG = "I H8 U, BRO. I REALLY, REALLY H8 U."
I feel bad for Will Butler, but maybe that's the genius of Win Butler. He has psycholical control over every member of the band, and is able to manipulate them in order to achieve great things. But he is still the slavedriver of the band.
Let's face it. Lykke Li isn't Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston (in her prime). She has a baby voice that is probably decent 4 indie, but unless she puts on a witchy woman costume, shows off some skin, and bangs on shit, half of the crowd is going to leave. Fortunately, she knows this, and she showed off some leg AND banged on a cymbal, and the crowd was probably like HELL YEAH! Even though it is gimmicky and every1 sees thru it, entry level markets really 'get off' to the banging on crap gimmick. It's kinda how the Arcade Fire 'got so famous' [via the Ginger Bro].
U can really see the fire in her eye as she 'bangs'
Do u wish u were there?
Does Lykke look hella good [via legz]?
Is her latest album not as good as her previous work?
Do ppl 'care' abt Lykke Li, or should she 'get fat' and ride Adele-waves?
Do u wish she'd show more skin?
Do u <3 concerts where some1 'bangs on something'?
Is 'banging on shit' a more authentic form of 'jimmy jangling'?
Remember that time that dude from the XX banged all over that cymbal? [link]
Do u wish u could join a band and become 'the bro who emotionally bangs on shit'?
