"Helloooooo. I am the pigeon who pooped all over Kings of Leon in July. Coooo. I've caught wind of the fact that the Nashville quartet is returning to the scene of the crime, the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, for a make-up date. Coooo. Brave gentlemen, since I'm still going to be there — and I'm bringing all of my friends, because nothing seems to be able to stop Kings of Leon's global dominance. Its new single, 'Radioactive,' features a gospel choir and is sunny, soulful pop-rock reminiscent of Paul Simon and mid-'80s U2. Cooooo. You know, this song bodes well for the band's forthcoming new album, Come Around Sundown; I rather like it. Perhaps I'll call off the troops for round two. You escape the poop parade this time, Kings of Leon. Now, has anyone seen Nickelback?"
