Their sophomore record "Want"reached number 44 on the Billboard 200, and the single off of it "Don't Trust Me" reached number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. At the time, I was lost and confused as to what the fuck 3oh!3 even was and why kids these days were going crazy over them. If you can't teach your kids the difference between this make believe shit and reality, then it is you as a parent who has failed. The group is clearly going for a comical "vibe"- just look at it's name. Try it sometime. Great way to be remembered eh? Free speech does exist, and sometimes it lets out degrading lines hidden by swanky beats, it's a sad fact of life, but it's a reality. Let's go to comedy for a second: the use of the slang "nigger." Jizz in my pants? We in 3OH!3 have tried to motivate people to educate themselves about today’s political and social environments over the past couple of months.

We have heavily discusse... Police Brutality, Racism, and Discrimination in NYC. 3oh!3 is a parody. Those dudes are annoying, and are clearly so far up their own asses that their videos are also really trite and uninspired (and, you know, full of the aforementioned woman hate). Kudos to you! Complain about this comment (Comment number 2) Comment number 3. You probably shouldn't have gotten me started! The majority of the kids I've encountered have this huge pack mentality and will only mock you if you try to say anything somewhat intelligent. My father (unsurprisingly) could not even comprehend such a strongly disapproving standpoint in regard to the song, simply saying that "it's just a song." Report. I've even heard of kids suing their parents for disciplining them. It’s been a number of years since we last heard synthpop duo 3OH!3 singing with Kesha about their first kisses, about the complete distrust of promiscuous females, and having double 3OH!3 are back: “LONELY MACHINES” is the first new single from Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte in years. Well, I guess the world is going to be a much different place, except us MTV generation-ers will be hopefully giving these kids a swift kick in the behind! This is the song Don't Trust Me by 3OH!3 off their album Want. Neither do any of my friends. I couldn't quite put my finger on why that song made me feel a little dirty upon hearing it for the first time, but I think you've nailed it. and i don't feel offended in the least bit, why? Lol, no, you sound like someone who is justifiably pissed off ;) yeah thats real degrading to women. Misunderstood? sexism exits, of course. 'CBC' By Hed (PE) Collaborations? P.M.A. The band, nor the majority of there listeners act any of what they say out in real life. Primarily, their lyrical messages tend to be overly sarcastic and somewhat mocking of the scene that they are apart of - in effect they are a bit self-deprecating to illustrate the absurdity of the pop lifestyle by reveling in its ostentatious nihilism. We took a brief pause in order to re-design the magazine, but the next issue will be out (and looking better than ever!) Thats whats in and u ppl just cant accept it. But for some reason, 3oh!3 seems even more offensive/obnoxious than others in the genre like Asher Roth, Shwayze, or LFO.

Ashley Brittner replied on Tue, 07/07/2009 - 9:08pm, "Sean (who graduated top of his class from CU in the English department) and Nat (who graduated top of his class in Biology) would both probably acknowledge that their lyrics are far from the high level of discourse that most feminist would like for pop artists to strive for...they have found a way to connect with millions of people (men and women) around the world. I've listened to a lot of their music and I don't understand how or why you think they're douchebags and misogynists. After I entered freshman year of high school I was no longer entertained by them at all. 3OH!3 is another reason I am losing even more hope in humanity every day. Personally, I don't like rap, acronyms, 3!oh!3, or fml. My point was that a *majority* of kids are how I described. Your rage that they are popular and making good money off decidedly over-the-top cheesy pop music makes their success all the sweeter. Just because some cookies are burnt doesn't mean the whole batch is ruined. However, there are boundaries. Made with SquarespaceSquarespace That little bit of high ground doesn't last so long as the fact that they spend all 3:13 of the song in a giant writhing puppy pile of seemingly desperate girls really sets in and takes hold. The dynamic duo of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte have taken 3OH!3 from the foothills of Boulder, CO to a household name – if we’re talking house parties. 100 gecs).” The track is not only reminiscent of the 3OH!3 sounds we first fell in love with, but it also includes a nod … so are hollywoodundead,and asher roth,shwayze... puting females down but they dont seem holy now do they?

Maybe it’s because they are working with the lethal combination that is douchiness+taking yourselves too seriously+woman hate+inexplicable popularity. More than likely, an audience member will understand the joke and laugh. One of the mothers told us that her daughter came home from school on Friday and told her that she wanted to "do the Hellen Keller". Follow her on Twitter if you like TV and pictures of dogs. You hear it on the radio, you hear it at clubs, you hear it EVERYWHERE. I know plenty of artists that choose to write and record their own music, and don't sell their souls to a label that will, 99% of the time, tell them what to play/sing and then sell it to the mindless idiots that buy it. Will Sean and Nat's next track be 'Don't Trust a Jew'? Out of 100 Senators, how many of them are women? i didn't. "I'm sorry, what?

Apparently, this single and its creators are sweeping the nation this summer, delivering a message of doucherty and douchetice for all. Furthermore, if you were to examine their whole catalog, you would note that most of their songs are spoken from an alternating points of view, or voices, that are not their own. The band’s irrelevancy could be due to low attendance of fans at concerts between 2011-2012. Tati replied on Tue, 07/14/2009 - 12:55am, I have a VERY sarcastic sense of humor, and my friends and I tease each other constantly. So in one video, they're grossed out by being touched by a woman, and in the other they look very uncomfortable in a big pile of women. We must strive to be greater individuals than the whole generation, and we do. I heard of 3Oh!3 in high school randomly because one of their songs was used in a performance, but I had never heard of them before and I haven't heard much of them after that. The statement, when taken in the lighthearted mood of the song, is not misogynist. I, too, am a male, and I rather enjoy hearing such songs on the radio--on the rare occasion that I am not listening to my iPod instead, that is. In the video, the band refers to women as “ho’s” and stresses that cheating is a commonplace in relationships. In my personal experience they have become extremely un-cool. She's not the exception, she's the rule, and this type of music is at her fingertips. 3OH!3 - Double VIsion [Hard] Single Tapping Double Time. It made so much fucking sense though! These guys are attempting to do the spaghetti-misogyny of Mindless Self Indulgence, but they've undershot the mark. 'Don't Trust Me' doesn't bother me as much as other songs I've heard, but that doesn't make it any less of an issue. Now, my issue is, I'm more worried and angry at the parents of these daughters or even the school teachers that do not instill proper value and self-esteem in girls to think for themselves. Haha.

But please stop labeling our generation this way, and making all of us look bad- some of us are genuinely good, motivated people, and WE DO NOT APPRECIATE BEING DEGRADED AND OPRESSED BY YOUR COMMENTS, because WE CANNOT CONTROL HOW OTHER TEENS ACT! However, they do like to have fun and see their fans have fun. Like having a song about chex mix. And aside from that, I (and I'm guessing lots of other people) enjoy their songs because of the music, NOT the lyrics. Adults/teens can roll their eyes at "music" like this, but (at risk of sounding like Helen Lovejoy) what about 9 year old girls? I find this very interesting. However this does not bother me and I like what I like and let others do the same - be it drinking, smoking, or teeny bopping. And I do agree, it's totally ridiculous how catered to kids are these days. no. Anonymous replied on Tue, 07/07/2009 - 11:18am. Of course, it has made us puppets, but that's another story. Seven replied on Mon, 07/05/2010 - 3:35am. Anywhere. It does accomplish things, it brings awareness about the kind of music out there and what to avoid. I heard the first song "Don't Trust Me" while in the car with a friend. I doubt kids these days even know what an encyclopedia is. College does not necessarily equal intelligence, most of the dumbest people I know graduated from college with ease. so how about you drop the good Christian act and really think about how much of a hypocrit you are. Im SURE that the members of 3Oh!3 are very nice guys, could be smart. I am not sure why they became so popular. Krystle18 replied on Tue, 07/21/2009 - 9:14am. Actually, by mentioning the long-deceased Helen Keller the group is just adding to her well-deserved fame. Anonymous replied on Mon, 07/05/2010 - 5:18am. Because the ideal woman is unable to hear, see, or speak and can only communicate through hip gyrations?" Here are a few fairly recent samples of the abundant “mysandric-type" songs in today’s pop music world…listen to the tone of the lyrics…very different from 3OH!3. Reaching this level of fail means only one thing: You must die, or the world will fail itself due to such an extreme level of failage. ***SUBSCRIBE*** Rate and comment!! Epic fail indeed. Black dress, with the tights underneath, I've got the breath of a last cigarette on my teeth. Comments: 1. And with the rest of the songs in their illustrious catalog bearing titles like, “Punkb*tch,” “I’m Not Your Boyfriend Baby,” and “Holler Til You Pass Out” it doesn’t sound like the rest of the 3oh!3 catalog is any better or more female-friendly. 3oh3 are douchebags making douchebag music. 3oh!3 isn't the only new band that's made up of misogynist douchebags. caffeineadddict replied on Mon, 07/06/2009 - 7:42pm. Coming through the speakers in my friend’s Kia were these words (poorly sung, I might add): Shush, girl! I love how your age and personal taste in music seem, to you, to have to do with the fact that the lyrics are straight out sexist and offensive to the disabled. I'm plenty pissed about the economy and education, and the government, and as for those people working for the cigarette and alcohol companies? 3oh3 have been pretty big for the last few years, I've been hearing them around constantly in art-kid, swanky hipster, college dorm room parties with lots of lycra tights and strobe lights. I know that misogyny often gets heavy Top-40 rotation, but this particular song is a particularly rare specimen: a clusterfuck of women hating and terrible, terrible pop music. replied on Sun, 07/12/2009 - 2:30pm. Do the HELEN KELLER? and do you realize how many artists ACTUALLY write their own music?! why pin it all on one offender? On radio stations across the country, 3OH!3’s newest song, Don’t Trust Me, sends an interesting message to viewers. Not that I have a problem with nuclear weapons or firearms [I have used both for a living], but I'm assuming you probably do. (Though some claim to enjoy these "funky beats," I cannot understand the appeal--and this is coming from a self-professed fan of technopop.) Parents can only do so much until it is up to you as an individual to decide whether or not you're going to actually play out elements of the media. The time has finally arrived – 3OH!3 are officially back with their first piece of new music in four years. Yup, that's what he meant. Singlen "Don't Trust Me" er blevet et moderat hit i USA og har peaket på som nummer 25 på den amerikanske singlehitliste. I stick them a giant middle finger for their sexist pigginess! Anonymous replied on Thu, 07/09/2009 - 3:42pm. I weep for people who condone this kind of music and behavior. So, do you mean we should only be reprimanding rappers of color for this or...what? We are just mature enough to handle it and not get all worked up about. 3OH!3 laver en blanding af hiphop og rock og har tidligere været på turné med Snoop Dogg, ligesom de i februar herhjemme kunne opleves som support for Katy Perry. You are all getting pretty damn worked up over a JOKE. Anonymous replied on Wed, 07/08/2009 - 5:32pm. They might not be douchebags (my boyfriend met the band before the got famous in LA), but maybe their followers are. I remember a time before the internet, and having to look up information in an encyclopedia. Incidentally, you misspelled hypocrite. Some people get angry about the state of world affairs, some people get angry about the kind of music that's being marketed to our youth. You are so high and mighty about so many things, and you think that it is I that is holier-than-thou? It's a cold comfort to think of how many times these guys got kicked in the face and jabbed in the eye while making that second video. These guys DO refer to women as "ho's". and hearing about things like "sexting" and how kids want gym class cut because they feel it's not alright to be subjected to things that some kids are bad at... gimme a fucking break! 3OH!3 is the eponymous debut studio album by American electronic music band 3OH!3. Kelsey, you are intelligent, articulate, and were on the mark. Whitney replied on Wed, 07/08/2009 - 1:22pm. Or being on a motherfuckin' boat. 'Voices' By Hed (PE) Riiiight? I'm too tired to repeat my initial comment, but one of the comments you deleted was mine, and I don't remember writing any personal attacks, using any inciteful speech, name calling, and I'm nearly 100% sure I stayed on topic. Us feminists should stick to reprimanding those, particularly radio-played rappers, who refer to women as bitches and hoes in their lyrics. It makes you seem really edgy. "Monkey see, monkey do" 'nough said, Anonymous replied on Mon, 06/28/2010 - 12:21am. I agree. No worries.
