Interesting computer-generated animation. (An official I-A-B t-shirt to the first person who names who does the song.)

IceCream...i was just saying that it`s closed minded to automatically jump to the conclusion that you dislike a band just because they dont sound like the music you`re used to, especially when disregarding the poetry of the lyrics....you obviously misunderstood me. And i never said that liking modest mouse makes me open-minded...so read a bit more carefully next time, eh?

Man, modest mouse is awesome. And this is not one of their best in my opinion. Check out missed the boat or the world at large, spitting venom is pretty good too.

Watching this video is the first time I ever heard this song, and I really enjoyed it. So I`m totally picking up Modest Mouse`s CD.

Haters, quit hating.

i have to say the animation didnt impress me that much (artsy and well-done, but not really a great music video.) i cant believe people are saying that modest mouse sucks though! i mean, saying, oh, thats not my style, ok, i can see that. but to say they suck? and also, just because a band takes repeated listens to enjoy doesnt make it bad-- sometimes music is complex and you need to hear it a few times to understand where it is going. think about it-- why does almost everyone like classic rock? because we have heard the songs SOOO many times and we understand them and have grown attached to them. most songs are not favorites the first time you hear them

TuffGhost88: `Modest mouse is ONE of the pioneers of modern indie music. People who don`t like them blah blah are closed-minded and don`t think outside the musical box. Modest Mouse is pure art.`

In my opinion, there is a thin line between a band producing music that is pure art, and a band producing music that is idiotic.

People who don`t like Modest mouse aren`t closed-minded. They just have a different taste in music. Everyone hates some kinds of music and loves others, and will always think their favourite music is better than others. Apparently, you`re no different.

Liking Modest Mouse doesn`t make you open minded. In fact, judging by your comment, it makes you quite the opposite.

Why is everyone saying it`s Modest Mouse when it`s obviously Brak from Space Ghost (and, uhm the Brak Show) singing the song.

Now where`s my t-shirt?

Modest Mouse is ONE of the pioneers of modern indie music. People that don`t like them probably just don`t understand them because they are closed-minded and unable to think outside the musical box. Modest Mouse is pure art. Thanks for the post.

You really have to listen to them for awhile before you start to appreciate Modest Mouse. At first I thought it was just obnoxious noise, but after listening to an album for awhile, I started to like it. They are not the best (old stuff is typically better) but they have some excellent tracks. "Float On" is probably my favorite track by them, and I highly recommend giving it a listen.

Telling people to shut up for stating their opinion is ridiculous....especially when you can`t force them to. Just live and let live.

Liked it. I have the album, and listen to it a lot. I have a lot of their earlier work, and think that even though the new stuff is not indy, the message is still there. I mean, this isn`t something you would expect to find on Lost Lonesome West, partly because it doesn`t sound like it was recorded in a don-john (I think it may have even been in mono). I hate the notion that any band that goes from indy to mainstream can`t keep its original "meaning" or purpose.

If a band "takes some getting used to," it`s because your eardrums have to adjust having poo shoved into them.

"stfu owen, no one cares..."

I am glad you are able to speak on behalf of the internet but may I ask why you brought even more attention to something that as you say " no one cares about"? not caring about something is easy you just have to do nothing. You making that statement again on behalf of the millions on internet users (how did they go about electing you as their public speaker?) shows that you must indeed care. Maybe not much but enough to wast that few seconds to type that "sentence" (if you can even call that a sentence)

The band`s name is modest mouse but the actual people who do the song are. Isaac Brock, Jeremiah Green, Eric Judy, and Dan Gallucci. That is who does it. Considering modest mouse isn`t a person you can`t really say modest mouse did this song. If the question was "what" instead or "who" you guys would have all been right but since "who" only applies to people I am the first person to answer the question correctly. =P

I know the contest is over but this song(Fly Trapped in a Jar) is track number 8 from the Modest Mouse album We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. I don`t really like the band (they are just not my type of music)and the only reason I know this is because my Eccentric cousin thought it would be a suitable Christmas gift.

Hey batmanners, there is no such thing as bad music, its all about personal preference.
