The Chicago band Their/They're/There fuse punk, prog and indie into a distinctive new hybrid. Members Evan Weiss, Mike Kinsella and Matthew Frank – all veterans of other indie-rock groups – show off their sharp dynamic with the tough vocals and interesting ska-meets-metal guitars of their new single, "Concession Speech Writer."

"This is the first song we ever wrote as a group," bassist Weiss tells Rolling Stone. "Oddly enough, it seems to be the most indicative of our styles and attitude as a band."

Their/They're/There's self-titled, six-track EP will be released on April 20th on Polyvinyl.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
