Shinoda+Metric Remix: GOLD GUNS GIRLS

August 30, 2009

Thanks to everyone who came out for last night’s Glorious Excess (Dies) opening; images of everything are on the way today.

In the preview video for GLXS, some of you noticed a song by Metric in there. I mentioned the band Metric a long time ago…http://www.mikeshinoda.com/comments/recommended_music-music_business/metric_talks_about_self_releasing_album…and some of you know I like their music. Their album “Fantasies” contains a song called “Gold Guns Girls.” When I first heard it, I thought: this is like a theme song for Glorious Excess!

Well, I contacted the band, and (to make a long story short) I remixed the song. With their blessing, it’s now on the “music” page here on mikeshinoda.com http://www.mikeshinoda.com/music

If you like this song, check the band out at http://www.ilovemetric.com/. The band will be making the song available to fans soon…but you’re getting the exclusive here first!

    Once again buddy, you not only support great music, you also put your own twist on it to make it sound so different. I’m from Canada and believe me Metric will be Canada’s Biggest band ever. Fantasies is a fantastic album, but do be sure to check out previous albums like Old World Underground, Where are you now? and Live it Out.

    Cheers Mike and can’t wait to see you back in Toronto.

    Thank you THANK YOU! for this. Your Show was excellent last night. I’m glad I was able to make it. Waited in line for about an hour and a half and made it in in time to check everything out including the short you created. Nicely done. I didn’t get a chance to see or meet you, but I definitely appreciated being able to see your art work up close and in person. Good work MS. Keep on keeping.

    Ahem…. Is the art book for this show going to be in the website’s store, and do you know when? You aren’t really saying much about the show’s opening… I hope that just means you didn’t have time to write about it or post pictures like you usually do. For some reason you don’t sound like you had fun to me…

  11. iamsatan on August 30, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    Hey Mike, Great show, I’ve been to all three of your openings, they just keep getting better. I went with my girlfriend to this one who was nervous to meet you haha. I really enjoyed the film at the end, I always love seeing the process of making art or music. Anyway congrats on the great show, and if your next show is in New York, I might just have to fly out.

    I had a great time at the show. Congrats on the success of it. Everything was so amazing to see in person. Nice talking with you too. I loved all the different versions and colors of the pieces. Even though the same pic was in different variations or colors, it was crazy how different the pictures looked. Gave it a different vibe I suppose. Well done.

    Thanks to you i discovered Metric… And i like their music! You’re remix sounds awesome… I am listening it right now for the first time… So It’s possible it will become bad:p But actually it’s unpossible, so far as i know there is no music that sounded bad and you’ve made. You’re great in music!

    Greetz,

  34. Poci87 on August 30, 2009 at 1:19 pm

    Hey Mike!
    I wrote to you many times already (on an other name) but you never answered yet.
    I don’t know that you will be answer me this time or not, but I would like to ask something: why are you limited the numbers of the books, skatedecks and shoes? Tons of people do not get from these just because you limited the numbers. we would like to buy it, and i think it would be more better for the scholarship program because they recieve bigger money than now…
    Please answer me. Me and my friends would like to buy the book about GLXS, but i think we dont get…as shoes, and others.
    Thank you for spending time to read this and congratulate for the show!

  35. numbrocker02 on August 30, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    anyway: yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!! @song…love it!!!!

  57. missdunno on August 30, 2009 at 10:14 am

    I only knew one song from Metric (” Help I’m alive”) which I love but now you made me want to listen more! I just checked out “Gold Guns Girls” to compare with what you’ve done and now I can say that your remix is awesome… You did a great job on this one! Bravo Mike, I’m gonna listen to it another time, this song is so amazing…

  58. Eddie on August 30, 2009 at 10:08 am

    Mike you are once again awesome! Thank you very much for the song! :-)

  59. PinkWater3 on August 30, 2009 at 10:03 am

    I’ve seen pictures from the show and I have one thing to say: It’s fantastic!
    I’ve always been a fan of your art, but you’ve surpassed yourself. This show is epic!
    And as for the song, thanks for putting it up, it sounds amazing! I love Metric :D
    EDIT (9 hours later, LOL): I forgot to mention something. The Metric remix you’ve posted here, it’s not the same one than the one from the LPTV episode, right? Because I loved that version, it was very melodic. You should put it up too :B

  60. LcatP on August 30, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Mike! Your show was AMAZINGGGG and you were so chill dispite the fact that you had been working super hard! I appreciate you taking the time to do a signing with your fans and being able to take pictures with us. I wish I could of told you this in person but I was so nervous lol. THANKS for the remix it’s super tight.. loved the documentary too. SIMPLY AMAZING!

  61. Shinoda77 on August 30, 2009 at 9:52 am

    It’s awesome like always, dad shinoda.

  62. Tubabu on August 30, 2009 at 9:51 am

    Oooh Mike, the remix completely is awesome. It’s just… you. I listen “Fantasies” of Metric since a few days, and probably, next week i buy this record. Thank you really much for having made me discover this band here . I’m very excited to listen your remix on my Ipod. Good Morning from France ;)

  63. colinreid on August 30, 2009 at 9:49 am

    Love the remix Mike.

  64. Full_Metal_Ninja on August 30, 2009 at 9:47 am

    Great show Mr. Shinoda! I bought all 4 skate decks! lol You probably don’t remember but we gave you a stress ball cause we’re pretty sure you were stressed.

    Anyway, great show as always!

    Great remix of that song too!
