Rian Dawson and Alex sat down with Buzznet at House of Blues in Vegas to chat about which song of theirs they'd want on Glee, a stripper who had an 'incident' on their tour bus, Mila Kunis and how their current single is meant to be a satire of what's on the radio right now.
For all of you who are all VIDEO A.D.D., here's a transcription of the highlights:
Question: What's the weirdest thing that's ever happened backstage?
Alex: We had a stripper backstage at Warped Tour and she broke someone's tooth with a…sex item…
Rian: And then the person whose tooth was chipped physically pushed her and uh, there's a lawsuit pending somewhere.
Question: Do you dumb down your lyrics to cater to your younger audience? Alex: No. I assume what she's referring to is the new single. In the case of that song, the song is a satire and the lyrics are “dumbed down” to fit the mold of what we were going for with that song, which is a catchy…
Rian: It's a parody!
Alex: Yeah, it's a parody of what you hear on the radio these days. But no, we don't cater our lyrics or music to the demographic, I think. We write what we like.
Question: Where's the weirdest place you have woken up after a night of partying?
Alex: A couple of years ago, we were partying in Connecticut at our friend's house and I blacked out at some point along the line. And then disappeared, I guess. No one could find me. This is when we were still touring in a van. The next morning, when the van was leaving to go to the next show, they found me passed out in the front yard.
Rian: Another one of Alex's is when we were playing in Allentown, Pennsylvania, I think. He woke up in the hotel lobby. The hotel employee was waking him up and he thought he was lost and he started crying and it was a whole thing.
Alex: It was weird…it was a bad one.
Question: If you could be any girl for a day, who would you be?
Rian: Mila Kunis.
Alex: I was just about to say Mila Kunis.
Question: If you could have any of your songs on Glee, which would it be and why?????? (Includes dramatic reading of question marks)
Alex: I feel like 'Poppin' might be good on Glee. It's very fabulous. It's a fabulous song. I can see it being based around something fabulous.
Rian: I was going to say 'No Idea' but it's not out yet. Cause usually they have the like slower songs…
Alex: So…they have No Idea what you're talking about!
'No Idea' is one of the tracks on Dirty Work, coming June 7th!
