The song blows, the mix is a mishmash of undifined elements, unoriginal funk vocal stylings, and the "give blood"chorus sounds like a little whiny white kid in the sandbox sticking out his tongue at you

Wow, it'd be just dandy if I never hear that song again. Blecch.

You douchebag hipsters..stick with your TV on the Radio and yeah yeah yeahs. No one cares what you think. Rain Machine rules, Rain Machine always ruled and Rain Machine continues to rule. Eric Singer has been playing with Kiss since 1992 and Tommy been in the Rain Machine posse almost as long, playing on their records since 1998. Rain Machine has influenced many bands and musicians over the last 20+ years and continues to do so. Now go back to Bedford Avenue and shut the fuck up.

getting sick of anything tv on the radio related and now this, i agree with what the first poster wrote, i think after awhile when the pitchforkmedia darlings smog blows over some people - people who have ears and don't follow the herd - will realize what utter derivative junk this is

uh...1:13 was making a reference to a previous commenter. He copy and pasted and wrote Rain Machine where it said Kiss. What he's saying wouldn't actually make sense, ass holes.

I've learned something, coming to the BV comments section lo these many years: If a majority of people commenting hate it, 8 times out of 10 it's actually pretty good.

I liked that song better when it was originally called "Under the Boardwork."
