Matchbox Twenty--MBT for the rest of this blog--came to us from Florida, much like Creed, the greatest rock band of all time, according to something we wrote a few weeks ago.
There must be something in the water there. Oddly enough, people from Florida who write about rock music are widely known to be the worst at their trade. Go figure!
But back to MBT. They've sold over 40 million albums and have electrified crowds for well over a decade now. This week's video, "How Far We've Come"--which talks about the death of all humanity--is MBT at their best. Conjuring images from both today and the era that was previous to today, MBT paint a stark, unsettling picture of our fate here on Earth.
It's all pretty chilling. But is it accurate? We leave that to you, our esteemed readers. As always, we welcome your informed comments.
