Their song "Beast in America" is awesome, so thanx 2K Games and Irrational Games for including it in the Bioshock Infinite trailer

No offence but I'm pretty sure they started to become more noticed after Beast was used for the Collector trailers

Yeah I know...not a big film and certainly not as much coverage as Bioshock but still it got them a lot of downloads.

I wonder how many downloads Health got when Max Payne 3 was out

I'll be completely honest, I cringed and scrambled to grab the remote and mute the TV every time that song started playing in the commercial.
To each their own though, we can't help what music we do and do not enjoy. I primarily listen to death metal and black metal, that's definitely not everyone's cup of tea and that's perfectly acceptable.

I kinda felt like their song on the ad was part of the attempt to advertise to the frat boy demographic Ken Levine was talking about. Not that I'm saying their song is the type of thing only frat boys listen to or anything, just that it didn't fit the tone of the game and came off as kind of a cynical attempt to grab the young hip crowd who need loud rock music on everything rather than a true representation of the tone of the game.

And Beast is the only good song on the album, lol.
