Opie and Anthony's interview of Finger Eleven made the best the of the situation of their equipment not being set-up and was probably very memorable to Finger Eleven on their second time on the show before they played their songs live. They made the transfer to XM from the FM side and were good guests.

Finger Eleven - Paralyzer
[YT]BYGCT4AQIR0[/YT]
hold on so nervously
To me and my drink
I wish it was cooling me
But so far, has not been good
It’s been shitty
And I feel awkward, as I should
This club has got to be
The most pretentious thing
Since I thought you and me
Well I am imagining
A dark lit place
Or your place or my place

Well I’m not paralyzed
But, I seem to be struck by you
I want to make you move
Because you’re standing still
If your body matches
What your eyes can do
You’ll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

I hold out for one more drink
Before I think
I’m looking too desperately
But so far has not been fun
I should just stay home
If one thing really means one
This club will hopefully
Be closed in three weeks
That would be cool with me
Well I’m still imagining
A dark lit place
Or your place or my place

I’m not paralyzed
But, I seem to be struck by you
I want to make you move
Because you’re standing still
If your body matches
What your eyes can do
You’ll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

We’ll I’m not paralyzed
But, I seem to be struck by you
I want to make you move
Because you’re standing still
If your body matches
What your eyes can do
You’ll probably move right through
Me on my way to you

Finger Eleven - One Thing
[YT]qnOvGGGf6qA[/YT]
Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
It’s nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

[Chorus:]
If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn’t that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

[Chorus x2]

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

[Chorus x3]

Finger11 is really good live, and they were really good guests today. I really enjoyed their older albums more, but their newer stuff is really good as well.

Don't care for the band, but they were cool guys. It's always good when guests get the show and go with it.

I don 't get it.

Yes, they were good as part of "the hang" in studio but that god damn One Thing song gives me douche chills.

Also, has anyone noticed that Paralyzer riff has an uncanny resemblance to Zeppelin's Trampled Under Foot?

They remind me of a more mature version of 10 Years (a band that's very much a O&A fan band... at least based on the fact they had WOW stickers on all their equipment when they came thru Iowa the two times I saw them)...

I "bought" all three of their CD's thru "a legal distributer"... we'll see Tomorrow how well their non-radio friendly songs sound.

If by "uncanny resemblance" you mean "don't sound a fucking thing like it", then yeah, you're right. :icon_roll

They've gotten poppier over the years, but "Paralyzer" is a fuckin' monster song. Been out for a year and keeps getting more popular.

Everytime they'd play Paralyzer coming back from break I was wondering wtf song it was. I've wanted it for months.

Finally I know what it is and now I have it.
