    General CommentChris Cester responded to the media debacle, stating in a Jared Story interview that the beat was taken from Motown, referring to a meeting between Iggy Pop and himself:

    "It's funny because I asked him point blank about that. He said I was crazy. He said that when he and David Bowie were writing "Lust for Life", they were ripping off Motown's beat. It's funny that he said that to me because we also thought we were ripping off Motown more than "Lust for Life". To be honest with you that kind of annoyed me a lot, because I always thought it was really lazy. People just go well Lust for Life is more well-known so that's what they go for, but if you listen to a song like "You Can't Hurry Love" (The Supremes) I think you'll find its closer to "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" than "Lust for Life" ever was. And that's what Iggy said as well."

    Song ComparisonAnyone else agree there's a different version? I have two versions in my music now.

    1. The first VERSION starts of with muffled tamborine, and the bass sounds more like a slap bass.

    2. The second version has a bright sharp tamborine, and the singer COUGHS.

    Anyone else notice that?

    General CommentI like it, however I wouldn't go home with a guy who asked me like that...whatever. Doesn't sound like "Lust for Life" to me.

    General CommentThe reason it sounds like Lust For Life is because the drumbeat is similar. But other songs use a similar drumbeat. It's just common in old-school and punk rock. Other songs that uses similar beats are "Last Nite" and "Someday" both by The Strokes.

    General CommentBy the way, there's another version of this song on the net, the one that's not on the CD. It's about 30 seconds longer and is more bass-y. It's better, imo.

    General Commentyou know, mikelb7, I had written this huge post written in response to your pathetic attempt to make me look like an idiot. I'm going to say this, I enjoy the song, it's catchy, and just plain fun to listen to.

    Just for future reference, you need to learn how to read, and try not to make so many assumptions. Nowhere in my previous post did I claim that:

    a) Jet was "saving rock and roll". I simply said they were helping in keeping it alive. I feel that pretty much anyone who picks up a guitar or another rock instrument and plays it passionately is helping to keep it alive. You may not feel the same, and that's totally fine. That's the beauty of the world, everyone is entitled to thier own opinion.

    b)That the entire rap genre was crap. That's just you making an assumption from when I expressed my dislike for the rap remix of "crazy train". I feel that particular song is awful. That doesn't mean I think all rap is awful. Relax buddy.

    c)That I know everything about music. Again, you making an assumption without knowing a damn thing. You think because I said "it's good to hear someone picking up a guitar and rocking it out" that I pretty much thought there was no one better at it than Jet. That's just assanine, and no one in their right minds would think think that.

    d) I watch MTV. Are you freaking serious? I stopped watching MTV when there was more reality television than Music Television. Also, I've never really been a big fan of music videos, because they place too much emphasis on looks than whether the song/artist is actually good or not.

    e) That this song was "original". I thought I had made it pretty clear, but maybe I made it too complicated for you when I said "Now, yes, 'Are you Gonna be My Girl' sounds very much like 'Lust for Life' by Iggy Pop, I'll give you that much." I think it's pretty easy to decifer that I was saying that Jet wasn't being very original with the music for the song. I figured it was pretty easy to understand, but then again, there are people like you out there who read far to much into things and make assumptions without knowing enough.

    So, I guess this post is pretty long, or at least longer than I had intended, but I can't let my good name be ruined by some jerk who is out for a debate no matter what. Maybe it's a superiority complex or something, and that's why you feel you need to put me down and claim I said things that I really never did. I think you need to just relax a little bit. I hear playing the guitar helps...

    General Commenthaha, i see mikelb7, i'm pathetic because i pointed out what a retard you are, and how you made nill decent points in your posts. and yes, i do care about my rep, whether it's on the internet or in real life, because if i look like an ass, what i say is less credible. it's basic psychology. I "cut up" what you said because you made invalid assumptions about what I had said. Maybe if you stopped running your mouth so much without thinking, you'd understand what this was all about. And could you possibly be more of a hypocrite? You blast me for my posts, and my fear for my rep, yet you continue to post, pretty much just to continue to try and make me look bad. If anyone is pathetic here, i'm thinking it's you.

    Just one more thing, did my second post cut you down so bad, that the best you could respond with was "fuck diesel, and fuck jet"?? That's it?! Seriously?!? Well, i don't know about anyone else, but you've convinced me sir, Jet sucks, and apparently so do I. You're an amazing debater, really, cause everyone knows that when it looks like you're beat, you can always throw a swearing tantrum, and that'll get you back on top. Way to act like you're 12. good luck with the rest of your life, i see you going far with highly developed maturity.
