Holy crap, they're awful.
Are they a Disney band?
their great strip club music.
It's Top 40, what are you expecting?
It's not about expectations. It's about them sucking. And being everywhere.
"Toxic" was a top ten song and it's ********ing great.
USA likes commercial music for example lilwayne. He sucks d.ick in very aspect but since it's pop music no cares.
I got over in getting angry that anything in top 40 billboard charts and accept that just what people like.......
The new BEP single isn't half bad.
Sounds like a song from Daft Punk's cutting room floor. And that isn't anything to be ashamed of...
Some of their pre-"shut up" stuff is alright. They just decided to go full retard and sell out.
Full Retard - Points for the Tropic Thunder reference.
Meet Me Halfway's going to be huge.
Black Eyed Peas were a pretty respectable outfit when they first started out and enjoyed a pretty big following among the backpack rap crowd. After that, though, they basically decided to go after the big bucks by pandering to the lowest common denominator via adding Fergie and a very large dose of stupid.
that "I Gotta Feeling" song has to me the most annoyingly catchy song there is around
I agree that BEP suck, but you've lost me at "Toxic". At least 'Let's Get Retarded' was a little bit catchy.
I was listening to Sound Opinions a while back -- the great podcast out of Chicago (HIGHLY recommended) -- and I believe they said the Black Eyed Peas are the biggest selling group around? Or something jaw-dropping -- like they're the biggest money makers in music or whatever.
I was duly flabbergasted -- because there is indeed something extra stupid about them. And I think it is in fact because they used to not be so stupid. That transition will always ring more flat and more false.
I also have to say that Toxic hooks me every time. Emphasis on hook. (I'm sure there's a 'guilty pleasure' thread somewhere on this board...)
They've had some crazy success this year. Their last two singles were at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 26 straight weeks! That's an all time record for any artist.
Boom Boom Pow - 12 weeks
I Gotta Feeling - 14 weeks
Only 11 other songs from 1955-2009 have ever had 12+ weeks at #1.
Where's the Love could have been a Marvin Gaye tune. The rest is obnoxious
I was just going to say, I saw some BEP shows back in their pre-fergie days and they were actually quite good. But as Belgian guy mentioned, when they went full retard and added Fergie it got bad quickly.
Well, I might not know their history, but what I do know is that their songs are not good pop songs and they dress like cartoon characters.
Don't they even have a song about this?
I know that Fergie pissed her pants onstage a couple years ago in San Diego. That's pretty retarded.
Complete garabage. Really shows that state of the music industry...
