Good for outcasts

April 11, 2006|by TIFFANY ARNOLD

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The video shoot was supposed to make them look like losers, Good For Nothing drummer Patrick McCullough said.

"I mean, I'd hope we're not," said McCullough, a junior at George Mason University.

The four-piece rock band recently shot a video for "Low Life," a song that sounds very '90s Green Day and recounts what it's like to be a social outcast - a loser, said the band's frontman Drew Adams.

"It's the idea that you're not really accepted in society," Adams said. "The feelings in your head are, like, anxiety - they're probably not happening."

The band hasn't had many problems getting its point across locally, though. Last year, Good For Nothing released its first full-length album "Welcome to The Carnival."


The band will play in the XMG International Music Conference in June in Washington, D.C.

As for the video - the band's first ever - Adams said it aired last week on Comcast's channel 21, a community information channel for Waynesboro and Chambersburg, Pa.

If you missed it, McCullough said he is sure his aunt recorded it. "We're gong to burn copies of it to DVDs," he said.
