Metro Station ‘Shake It’ and ‘Seventeen Forever’ Free Music Videos

California based band Metro Station have been together since 2006, ever since Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso were introduced to each other on the set of hit American children's show 'Hannah Montana', in which both of their younger siblings star. With the addition of bass player Blake Healy and drummer Anthony Improgo, Metro Station has become a popular punk-pop band, even being signed to major label Columbia Record's subsidiary label Red Ink. At the end of 2007 they released their début album, a self-titled record that was a popular and energetic mixture of synth powered punk-pop, following in the footsteps of other hugely successful bands such as Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco. The album hit the US charts at number 189, but by June of 2008 had climbed to number 39, and has sold just under 500,000 copies in the United States to date. Despite this relative success, the album has received a number of rather uninspiring reviews; NME only awarded the album 4 out of a possible 10, and similarly Kerrang! only gave it 1 star out of 5. That being said, there certainly are many fans of this gritty, sometimes sleazy, high-octane collection of tracks, and everyone really should take the time to make up their own minds.

Free Music Video - Metro Station ‘Shake It’

The single 'Shake It' was Metro Station's debut single in the UK, but was the third song to be released from the album in the US. This single climbed to number 10 in the American billboard charts, and went Platinum in late 2008. The single 'Shake It' encourages listeners to do exactly that - to get on their feet and dance their hearts out. In fact, the video made to accompany this track features the band performing the single, surrounded by dancers competing against each other around them. The track itself contains many lyrics that can be seen as rather immature – an homage to suppressed schoolboy desires perhaps. Yet the enthusiastic, synth-driven, 80s pop feel soon eclipses puerile lyrics, and is sure to have your foot tapping at the very least. Unsurprisingly then, this single has proved to be a certified dance-floor filler, and is popular with many of those outside the die-hard Metro Station fan base.

Free Music Video - Metro Station ‘Seventeen Forever’

Metro Station are yet to release a second single in the UK, though this will be rectified in July 2009 with the release of 'Seventeen Forever.' This track has, however, already been released in the band's native US as their fourth single there, and charted on three major billboards. Whilst lacking the exuberance that makes 'Shake It' such a floor filler, 'Seventeen Forever' is nevertheless an energetic, catchy track that is likely to be popular upon its release in the UK. Like 'Shake It' however, this track also has some questionable lyrics, as the song appears to focus on the singer's desire to have a relationship with an under-age girl, and features lyrics such as 'we can get away with this tonight.' That being said, this track is likely to be a huge hit with teenagers who can perhaps identify with the frustrations of being 17, and who are, somewhat blamelessly, caught up in the catchy chorus of this would-be generational anthem.
