Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "So if somebody’s covering something from a radio broadcast in ‘92 or whatever, well, as an artist I’m honored, but as a fellow music fan I’m all like 'obscure and old does not equal good necessarily or even regularly.' So if somebody’s covering, say, 'Bad Luck Triple Star,' a song I played on a session at KUCI way back when, then my inner hesher says, you are posing, that song is barely any good at all, you are just trying to show people that you are hardcore. Which I totally get, because I am also hardcore, but from this side of it there’s always an element of wanting to say 'you know and I know that would have been the worst song on the album if it had been released.'" -- Tumblr, on people covering older, obscure songs
