OK, maybe its because I hate Modest Mouse, or maybe its because I think his style doesn't fit with them at all.

It's not as if they forced him to join or something. For all intents and purposes, he's hardly even contributed.

Never been a fan of Modest Mouse.

And when I read that Isaac Brock intentionally cut himself on stage in front of fans, I wanted to punch that emo twat in the face.

Big Boi is working with Modest Mouse. Couldn't name a song of theirs.

Mysterious Ways is my least favourite on Achtung.

I liked Float On, but haven't liked anything else I've heard by them.

You know Float On. Even if you've never heard it (which I doubt), I'm sure you heard the Lupe track that samples it.

Looked it up, indeed I have. Good tune. Not sure where. DI I'm guessing.

There is thorough argument in the youtube comments about which song means more/is better.

It was in Rock Band, if you ever had that. I once tried to sing it at my buddy's house before passing out in the middle of the kitchen.

The Moon And Antarctica is an incredible listening experience. So harrowing and beautiful, and its cohesion really makes sure you feel as if you're going on a weird spiritual journey with the band, rather than being preached at way out in the audience. Nothing else by Modest Mouse has moved me to such a degree, or even come close.

Float On is overrated and Lupe just made it worse. The vocals are more fun on Guitar Hero/Rock Band than the guitar is, ftr.

Meh, I think he greatly improved it. But needless to say I was beyond shocked when I queued up that track for the first time and heard that music in the intro, and then the vocal kicked in and I was even more surprised.

Pilot Can at the Queer of God is my favourite track on Transmissions from the Satellite Heart.

I absolutely hate the beach boys, the who, and duran duran. I'm also not sure what all the fuss about lynard skynard was.

I still haven't heard this supposed fiasco of a "sample".

I don't know if I'd say it's overrated, maybe more overexposed. That all said, you have no idea how incredibly mind blowing it was the first time I heard it on a mainstream radio station. I literally remember calling one of my friends and saying, "I don't know what's going on, but I just heard Modest Mouse on the radio." How it suddenly got picked up by the mainstream, I'll never know.
