Maybe it's the caffeine talking, but this rocks. I am dancing in my chair! ~~Christina Miller, Oct 2006

The episode released on Halloween wasn't even the Halloween-themed one. ^_^ New Jazz To Settle 02:36, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
By far the worst of all the podcasts so far. Probably the only thing about TMBG I don't care for is that they use their status on occasion for political purposes. I didn't care for the political (liberal/democratic) undertones of this podcast. Sir Zman 13:45, November 2, 2006
Of course, in past podcasts, they had stuff like "Get Along Home Harvard Liberals," too. I like the political songs, myself, the campaign fight songs, the Hank Williams song about Stalin - it's historical.~Christina Miller, November 2006
I have to agree with you, Zman. Except about this being a bad podcast. I hate it when anyone pushes their political or any other kind of beliefs. However I forgave them because of the different "I'm Your Boyfriend Now," even if the difference was just slightly higher quality.  :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.80.117.213 (talk) 16:50, November 2, 2006
I think the last part was at least partly a joke. This isn't going off the assumption that everything they do has to be a parady, but the fact that they are widely known to have indirectly supported the democrats (through moveon.org) it wouldn't come as a suprise to most fans. I believe if they wanted to seriously push their beliefs on you they would have done more effective propoganda such as "Call connected through the NSA". As far as I am concerned, there is nothing wrong with political overtones so long as it carries an aesthetic value and not just a propoganda value to it. Even so, I think it should have had a message from the band to get out and vote or something to that effect instead of (even jokingly) tell you who to vote for. I am sure their intention was not to discard all their non-democrat party fans (I myself, am left of liberalism. Oh, and the S-E-X-X-Y remix was awesome! I havent heard it before because I cant be bothered with the clock radio. ~~[some user who didn't care to login] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.221.187.19 (talk) 22:50, November 2, 2006
I agree. Although I really have no political position (after realizing how ridiculous it is), I really cannot stand the political songs. I was hoping that They wouldn't do that (I knew that Flansy was democratic, but I also figured he would never try to push politics on his fans, who use his music to escape the real world. Now it seems like he is trying to push us back. Other than the political crap, it was pretty cool. By the way, what did tmbg have to do with moveon.org? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dunklekuh81 (talkcontribs) 19:04, September 19, 2007
TMBG contributed a version of "Tippecanoe And Tyler Too" way back in 2004 to Future Soundtrack For America, the sales of which benefited moveon.org. --MisterMe (talk) 08:55, 16 February 2017 (EST)
