The Greatest Band Press Release in the Long and Mediocre History of Band Press Releases
Even awful bands do things right sometimes. We're wholly disinclined to say anything nice about the "crunk-core" cartoon outfit BrokeNCYDE, because, well, BrokeNCYDE is terrible. They're so terrible that after receiving a CD in the mail boldly entitled The Best of BrokeNCYDE, we actually rolled around on the floor laughing, showed it to everyone in our office, watched them roll on the floor laughing, giggled some more, then Tweeted about it.
Everything you need to know about BrokeNCYDE is contained in the above photo.
But! Said CD came accompanied with a press release, as CDs mailed to newspapers often do. Most CD press releases are as mediocre as room-temp turkey on Dec. 2. This was a very un-mediocre CD press release, however. In fact it may be the single greatest CD press release we have ever received -- an honor we are extremely hesitant to bestow upon anyone, much less the patron saints of late-adolescent binge-drinking idiocy. But this press release was short, well-written, and funny. It got our attention, and prompted us to consider writing about the band. Unfortunately, there isn't much of a lesson here for you music PR folks, because this kind of thing can only be done once:
World, this is it. The greatest band press release in band press release history. We are sorry.
Yes, that's the entire thing.
Now, is anyone out there looking to buy a pre-release copy of The Best of BrokeNCYDE?
