And, look, [clip of I don't remember people saying many good things about the original "Smooth Criminal" before Alien Ant Farm.
But now, everyone's like, "ooh, 'Smooth Criminal', best song he ever wrote. Todd VO : I also love that they basically threw in every Michael Jackson reference they could think of in the video. But no matter how hard you work on your moonwalk, eventually Todd VO : Yep, they apparently really thought "Movies" had it in it to be a big hit. In fact, they re-released it with a whole high-budget music video with all sorts of stupid jokes and movie references.
Todd VO : Which is weird because As far as I can tell, it's a poorly written breakup song. Todd VO : The fact that they kept throwing money at this lousy song is just astonishing to me. It's like they made a giant, glittering, diamond-encrusted statue of a dog turd. Did they really think this could get big when they were competing against music Todd VO : They released a few more albums, although their next album came out on Dreamworks Records right when it went out of business, so Alien Ant Farm got lost in the lurch a little.
Also, there was a [Billboard article about Apparently there was a lot of fallout from that. Todd : Alien Ant Farm weren't the luckiest of bands, no. But they did try. For their next album, they crashed the BET Awards and played their debut single. Todd VO : Yeah, you know, a bunch of white people disrupting a party for minorities. The optics on that are a little sketchy. Then again, the people down there probably had more money than Alien Ant Farm could ever dream of. Then again again, they're still kind of dicks because they crashed the show by playing shitty music. I bet if they played "Smooth Criminal", the crowd would get into it.
Todd : [can't take much more] All this sounds the same. Every shitty unknown band for the past fifteen years sounds exactly like this. There's no point in any of that. I give up. No, no. You know, I feel like I'm not giving this my due diligence. I've always been kind of allergic to this genre, but if I really wanna understand what I'm talking about, I'm gonna have to really hunker down and listen to a whole lot of nu metal.
Todd motions to cut. Okay, stop. I think I got it. Having now listened to enough nu metal that a [image of Either they had too happy childhoods or they had too much dignity to embarrass themselves like Staind did. They're just not a lot to grab onto. Todd VO : They clearly wanted to be seen as this fun time band that makes goofy faces, but they spent all this time making such unfun music—not bouncy enough to headbang to, not angry enough to fulfill your primal white-boy rage, it Todd VO : Alien Ant Farm broke up in , but have since reunited and crowd response was strong enough that they're recording again. They're going back independent now and crowd-funding their next album on pledgemusic.
So if you think I'm a douchebag and you actually like all the music you heard I mean, with the whole backyard party thing, that's what they looked like. Maybe with better promotion, they could've gotten luckier, but they probably shouldn't have. I'm really sorry, but Alien Ant Farm are, by a pretty large margin, the least interesting band I've ever covered, I guess. Todd : This really isn't my genre, all this music sounds the same to me.
