Actual Emails of Actual Bands Rejected From Mark McGrath's Actual Under the Sun Tour

Courtesy of founder/organizer/smirkmerchant Mark McGrath, the shamelessly '90s-talgic "Under the Sun 2013" tour*--featuring Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, Gin Blossoms, Fastball and Vertical Horizon--touches down at the Paramount in Huntington tonight [8 p.m./$71.25-$106.75], aiming to take you back to that carefree, breezy radio alterna-pop era before drone strikes and Amanda Bynes meltdowns.

So many artists from that time, so few slots on this tour! A ton of bands actually reached out to McGrath to get on the bill, although ultimately they were shot down. We got ahold of actual** emails from a couple of them.

*Not to be confused with Alex Alexakis of Everclear's shamelessly '90s-talgic Summerland tour.

**And by "actual," of course, we mean "completely fake."

The Verve Pipe is actually a really good band with a lot of really great songs, unfortunately idiots like the guy who wrote this article don't care to investigate further.  A truly underrated band

Mr Goldberg, funny stuff! To those wondering if those E-mail's are a joke... Yes, of course they are. "We could even open AND close with "Counting Blue Cars". We can even throw it in the middle of the set a couple times too". Come on people, it's supposed to be a joke.

These emails are so fake. They have to be right? Really, do band guys still think like that?

If you remember the 90s bands on his tour, you weren't there.

Shame on you for the website you own that advertises prostitutes.
