Drowningman Track Inspired By MySpace Members

MTV.com reports: Simon Brody's a self-proclaimed MySpace devotee. The frontman for Vermont mathcore masters Drowningman's not ashamed of that — but he has made his fair share of MySpace-related mistakes. Brody's learned from these mishaps, he said, and turned those lemons into lemonade in the form of "Major Disappointment Reporting for Duty," a track from his band's forthcoming LP, "Don't Push Us When We're Hot."

"Anyone who's ever met a potential romantic interest over the Internet will understand what that song title means," Brody said. "Someone's either been Major Disappointment or has met Major Disappointment. If they've ever delved into the world of MySpace and met any of those freaky people, they'll relate."

Not that the song itself is about the perils of online encounters — just the title really. Yes Brody's tempted fate by meeting several of his Internet pursuers in the flesh. But it's a practice he's given up for good.

"I've basically come to the conclusion that when any girl who seeks me out on the Internet, there's going to be problems," he elaborated. "I have met some girls on the Internet in person, and they've all been mentally unstable." One woman bought him a plane ticket and he went to visit her in Minneapolis. Another girl, this one from Virginia, drove 16 hours to visit him in Vermont. Brody's convinced it's because the photo that appears on his MySpace page shows him bareback.
