Song of the day: Magneto – "Underground"

April 19, 2010

Here’s “Underground” by Melbourne band Magneto:

Magneto – “Underground” (2006)


“Underground” appears on Resistance Is Futile (2006).

Note to Ben Folds Five fans:

If you’re a big Ben Folds Five fan, you may have seen the title “Underground” and thought “Yay! Peter’s finally playing a Ben Folds Five song!”. I’m sorry to disappoint you that it isn’t Ben Folds Five’s “Underground“. However, to help you get over the crushing disappointment of Magneto, here’s BFF’s* “Underground”:

Or maybe you thought today’s song was “Underground” by heavy-metal dude Thor on his 2004 album, Beastwomen From The Center Of The Earth – which, to me, is a serious contender for BEST ALBUM TITLE EVER.

Incidentally, I just listened to Beastwomen From The Center Of The Earth in its entirety. I don’t recommend it.

(*Unfortunately, I can’t think of a joke involving Ben Folds Five and the initials “BFF” that are now used by tweens everywhere in the Western World. I know there’s a joke in there somewhere, but I just can’t think of one. Sorry about that.)
