Haven't seen the video, but I can see your point.

Good review, though.
I think its not about how great he is for doing that, I think its more a positivity thing, juxtaposing these two ostensibly uncorrelated events there by saying they are to be viewed as equally difficult or more accurately, equally achievable.

You might think its cheesy or preachy or...

Sorry to those who like it, but that was ****in dumb.
yeah or even ****ing dumb but I suspect most gave it about 5 seconds worth of attention, wrote it off as a bad Papa Roach and went on dancing to their tuneless blather but its was great in concept and I can't say enough for the musicality of the song. Its builds to a beautiful crescendo and to me has always come off as some sort of musical piece.

I like the song (handle bars) it's catchy and well structured; I ignore the message because most "artists" today are too self absorbed and\or motivated by outside factors to write songs with a message.
I'm gonna check out the CD and what happened to the guy who wrote the revie3w, why does (s)he have a disabled account?

Pardon me sir, but are you suggesting there's a good Papa Roach that I haven't been informed of?

papa roach does indeed suck! but i dont seen how you can even compare them to flobots. they dont even sound remotely similar. its like comparing tupac and the Beatles. just doesnt work.

The Flobots are not meant to be liked because of their musical genius but rather the catchy sound. The album is decent but they came up so fast from a Denver music competition to getting spins on local stations to national airplay in under a year mainly because of "handlebars"

I liked the Handlebars song - saw the video this week & didn't realize the band is based 20 miles south of me.
