Neurosonic Frontman Talks About Fall Out Boy Comment
Vocalist Jason Darr of the Vancouver, British Columbia hard rock band NEUROSONIC has issued a statement in response to media reports that he was recently slapped with a cease-and-desist order by FALL OUT BOY frontman Pete Wentz over the lyrics to the NEUROSONIC song "So Many People".
Stated Darr: "Anyone silly enough to believe I was serious about the comment I made at my [NEUROSONIC's] New York City Knitting Factory performance has no sense of humor. Before we played our song 'So Many People' I joked that Pete Wentz had taken out a cease-and-desist for the song because my lyrics are all about Ashlee Simpson's [Wentz's girlfriend] 'Saturday Night Live' debacle as well as celebrity culture. The song is not new… I wrote it three years ago…I wrote the music and had the initial lyrics right after the 'Saturday Night Live' debacle in October 2004, and completed the song right after Ashlee was given the Billboard award [December 2004]. 'So Many People' is on our album 'Drama Queen', which was released by our label Bodog Music in January 2007. The song is tongue-in-cheek and it was mostly meant to blow off steam about a subject that is laughable at best… It is not meant to be malicious. I do mean every word of the song though, so you can take it or leave it. It's only rock 'n' roll."
NEUROSONIC's single "So Many People" is currently #29 at Active Rock and the video recently beat out established bands like the FOO FIGHTERS on Fuse TV's "Oven Fresh".
The Vancouver-based band has been playing the song live for over a year, including on the main stage at Family Values Tour 2007.
NEUROSONIC just finished up a U.S. tour this week and will go back on the road in January 2008.
