According to frontwoman Emily Haines, Hummer asked to use the Metric song "Succexy" in an advertisement. That would be the song whose lyrics go:
Invasion's so succexyWell, that's a real Hummer-dinger, now isn't it? And they said irony was run over by a Hummer. It wasn't!
Let's drink to the military
The glass is empty
Faces to fill and cars to feed
Nothing could beat complete denial
We would also like to say that the word "succexy" makes us cringe when we see it written down. When we hear it aloud, however, it sounds kinda succexy. So read this blog entry to a friend. Then, make out.
"Ace show, P.S.," says my Ottawa-based concert arm-candy. True. It was. As for the new disc Live it Out, more listening is needed to determine the precise level of rawk.
