I heard Metro Station’s “Control” in a random tv commercial about a month ago. I didn’t know who the song was by, but the commercial caught my attention every time it was played. I guess it wasn’t a great commercial, I can’t remember what it was advertising, but I do remember the song.
Metro Station is a dance-punk band that reminds me of The Secret Handshake and The Faint. They are all young guys that should have a long career in the music business ahead of them. Their self-titled debut album is doing well and I am seeing their name all over last.fm user profiles.
I couldn’t find an official version of “Control” that they would let me embed, so here is a user’s video with lyrics.
