Playback: Kongos - Come With Me Now

09/05/2014 1:05:29 AM

Since everyone seems to indulged on boy bands once again like One Direction, the Vamps, and any other else… (say, does 1975 counts?) well, I’d prefer to listen to this all-boy alternative band (at least, not a very typical bullshit known as “mainstream pop”) named Kongos.

And to be frank? Yeah, WWE Extreme Rules brought me here.

Honestly, I first thought the theme wasn't perfectly fitted for this. But still, I managed to listen to them and found the track… hmmm… quite good.

Plus, Kongos’ "Come with Me Now" was once used as a theme for the Stanley Cup, as well as The Originals, NASCAR, the trailer of the film Holy Motors, and even the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

So at least, we knew that this single has already a background in sports and entertainment events.

Four members of this South African-native band were apparently, the sons of a singer-songwriter named John Kongos.

However, I can only classify this thing as “underrated” at all, since not everyone used to be familiar with it. But believe me, folks. This one’s good.

No wonder why after 2 years (since the single was originally released in their home country), they made it big; specifically, in Canadian Hot 100 and US Billboard charts.

I think we should give these guys a break even more. Better check out their album Lunatic if you got some time.
