OPEN LETTER TO JOHN MCCAIN FROM MATT FRICTION & THE PINK SPIDERS

“Dear Senator McCain,

We were bummed to hear that Jackson Browne recently sued you over your use of his song “Running on Empty” in a campaign ad. We, The Pink Spiders, think it’s uncool that someone would try and mess with your quest for total Republican world domination. Here’s the thing: most 18-30-year-olds have no idea who the hell that guy is. I mean, has his song ever been on MTV’s Total Request Live? Or an iPod commercial? We think not.

That said, we understand your genius in using contemporary music to reflect your concerns for your constituency, and we figured we could help you out by letting you use one of our ultra-popular smash hits for your next campaign ad. We’re young and good-looking, something your campaign could use a dose of.

Take, for example, our new single “Gimme Chemicals.” This one speaks directly to many of the issues that your voters care about: a national health care system, medical insurance reform, and especially the skyrocketing costs of the many prescription pharmaceuticals that folks your age are known to take in mass quantities. We all know how much you senior citizens like to party with those “little blue pills,” right?

And if that song doesn’t catch your attention, there’s plenty more from our brand new record, Sweat It Out (for release on Sept. 23), that pretty much speak for themselves in telling voters what to expect from a McCain Presidency: “Here Comes Trouble,” “Settling For You,” “Stranglehold,” “Trust No One,” and “Falling With Every Step.” Isn’t it a crazy coincidence that pretty much ALL of our songs work for your campaign? Wow.

The Pink Spiders and John McCain: it’s a match made in heaven. With our help, we think you’ll be elected Supreme Emperor of America with no Sweat.

Rock on, (as Paris Hilton said) “old grey-haired dude!”

Love,
Matt Friction & The Pink Spiders”

THE PINK SPIDERS ready to ‘SWEAT IT OUT’ on September 23

The Pink Spiders, the Nashville-based power-pop band with the explosive sound and attitude to burn, is priming their fan base for a new fix later this year as they prepare the September 23 release of Sweat It Out.¬†With heavyweight producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen) at the helm, Sweat It Out is the band’s first album to be released on Pink Spiders frontman Matt Friction‘s own label Mean Buzz, via Adrenaline Music.¬†Giving fans a taste of what’s to come, the new album’s first single and video “Gimme Chemicals” – which screams “summer party anthem” – will be hitting the airwaves shortly.
