I think Gnarls Barkley is one of the most important acts in music today — maybe it's just me — but I'm amazed at the friends of mine who are hip hop fans that can't see that manic brilliance.It's worth mentioning too, that despite his boyband beginnings, Timberlake's self-effacing humor was a nice touch. Which reminds me:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxFssEUCKw4
Really? We're posting Gnarls Barkley videos now? What is this, Jack FM?
Just because it's popular doesn't mean it's bad. Hell, Crazy was everywhere -- EVERYWHERE -- two years ago, and yet I always thought that it deserved to be. It was one of the best singles of the last maybe decade or so, and certainly the best debut single by a band in God knows how long.
I started watching this and wondered what the problem was. I mean, have you ever watched the anime shit on Adult Swim. That's seizure city 23 minutes straight. I looked away for a second and when I looked back...I can't remember the details. Next thing I know I'm on the floor doing a really bad impression of The Worm and my co-workers are freaking out. Can't say I wasn't warned. Thanks.
@Thomas: just tell your hip hop friends to remember that 1/2 of Gnarls Barkley used to be 1/4 of the Goodie Mob
You know, I really really like them. Even though this is a little "Hey Ya" ish, they have an amazingly retro, unique sound.It's tragic that I know this, but Cee Lo's daughter was featured on MTV's Sweet Sixteen show a couple years ago.
I thought it was banned from MTV because it's an actual music video and/or doesn't fit into a TRL slot. Oh, yea... I also thought Crazy deserved to be everywhere. Popular or not. GB is some cool shit.
