First Muse jumped on the bandwagon, then Death Cab For cutie said they would write a track, then Thom Yorke...and now Band of Skulls and Grizzly Bear....WHY!???? I will admit, I have never read the books, I have never watched the movies, something about sparkly vampires that twinkle in the sunlight and have feelings and emotions is off putting to me. I prefer my vampires to kick ass and kill people, I guess I'm just more of a Buffy fan; where the vampires were hotter, they were badder, and there were way more R rated sex scenes (sorry but its so true). So now, after the entire soundtrack has been announced I have felt a bit betrayed by my favorite bands. And look I know everyone needs to make a buck once in a while, especially indie artists, and the movie soundtrack is usually a great way to promote indie bands. However, usually the music is used tastefully in a small budget film, or an artsier movie, not TWILIGHT. I guess this only scares me because Twilight is associated with so many things that churn my stomach, like Hot Topic, and screaming, crying, Edward Cullen loving girls...who will soon be attending indie concerts with me if they get their hands on that stupid album! I guess that's where the fear resonates from, the dread that when MY music (yes because I own it...ha) hits their ears, they will become addicted and start going to shows and buying records until INDIE becomes the new EMO and we all know how MTV ruined that genre. All I am hoping for at this point, is for that Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie to become a reality so Buffy can kick some major Twilight ass.
