Lyrics Undercover 346: “Million Dollar Loan” – Death Cab For Cutie


From this episode…
Born on the heels of the Grunge explosion, Death Cab For Cutie was formed in the town of Bellingham Washington in 1997. Originally a solo project for frontman Ben Gibbard, Death Cab – as it is often called – is an Alt Rock band with a deep musical sound. Each studio album by the band is a rich tapestry of music accompanying often very poignant and sometimes dark lyrical arrangements. Gibbard is an outspoken man and an activist for various causes, such as gay rights – and it is very common to find those themes running throughout their music. The band recently joined a political activist musician coalition called 30 Songs 30 Days in which a different group or artist made a song for each day leading up to the American Presidential Elections. Theirs was the very first track, titled ‘Million Dollar Loan’ Click to listen http://lyricsundercover.com/audio/LU-346.mp3 Like what you hear?
