Myspace

From This Might Be A Wiki
TMBG's default Myspace image of John and John in suits

Myspace is a social networking site. It was often used by artists as a promotional and communication tool, in order to keep their fans up to date and create new fans.

TMBG's profile was created on September 27, 2005, and was run by fans until the band officially commandeered it on March 3, 2006. The profile included songs that could be streamed (and sometimes downloaded). On the page, the band posted blog entries that could be viewed by all, which were mainly used for listing news and updates about new TMBG music and upcoming shows. They also posted bulletins (archived below), which could only be seen on Myspace if you had befriended the band.

The band no longer maintains their Myspace page, and relies instead on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
