Let's Pretend We Don't Exist
I just saw an ad for Outback Steakhouse that uses an Of Montreal song. The odd part is that it was a cover version.

I saw this commercial about a month ago and didn't know if I'd witnessed foul play or what. The tune is exactly the same, but the singer, instruments, lyrics, etc. are all totally different. I went to the band's mySpace page to "alert" them to the fact that Outback was using their song, and never received a response. Maybe Outback purchased the melody?

See the previous comment from chrisglass for clarification. It wasn't theft.

Kevin has a family. Gotta feed the children, I guess.

it disturbs me even more to hear rilo kiley's 'portions for foxes' on this pbs news show i watch.

they're going to start licensing some old nirvana songs for commercial use soon. some news story said something about 'green alternatives that kurt cobain would have approved of.'

bwahahaha.

I want to know how to pronounce that word. It's very compelling on the screen.
