I have no specific reason for disliking the Decemberists. In fact, I don't ever think I've ever really listened to them. If I gave them a chance, I might even like them. But it seems as though any time non-mainstream bands are being talked about, there's that one guy who inevitably brings up the Decemberists. I'm not like the rest of you. I'm my own person, dammit.
But then it occurred to me why I liked this song so much -- it's a rip-off of a song I already like. Take a listen. And for those of you who were born after 1989 or so, the answer's after the jump.
I think it's pretty obvious. As in, I keep expecting The Decemberists to yell FIIIIIIRE!!!! after the chorus. But this could just be me. Oh wait, it's not.
Very sneaky, Decemberists. I don't like you yet. But write a catchy knockoff of a Hootie & the Blowfish song and maybe I'll reconsider.
