i mistakenly found myself standing in line at a ting tings show not too long ago. i went to rhode island to see everybody out, was misinformed on the time doors were supposed to open, and showed up at what i believed to be jerky's bar at 7pm. little did i know 1) the show i was going to, doors weren't actually until 9 2) club hell and jerky's are in such close proximity, that having never been there before i didn't realize one door went to one club, the other to another. as more people gathered, i began to look increasingly out of place amongst the throngs of high school/middle school age abercrombie kids. eventually i asked one of the prepubescent girls standing in line with me what show i was in line for. she literally screamed "the ting tings!!" in my ear, and showed me her ticket. i told her i had no idea what that was (her father said something like "don't look at me, i'm just the ride home" ), and left to call a friend near a computer who could verify if i was even in the right city.

since then i checked them out. you know how sometimes you wish you could take back having heard something? yeah. really not my cup of tea.

I like them, their pop music is simple and catchy and not claiming to be anything more than that

Just heard this song for the first time tonight. I'm going to have to agree with Saracene on this one, I can't get the friggin' song out of my head!

The NME love them because they see all this crap as real rock music.

I don't think anyone, the NME included, considers this music 'rock'
