    Default "Different Devil" Video?

    So, the "Different Devil" video was released yesterday, and uh . . . what the fuck? It's just the song played over the cover art.

    This song could be a big hit, but they seem to have dropped the ball big time if that's the video. I mean, of all the songs to half-ass! This was their big shot, and they're blowing it. Please, boys, if you want to compete against that musical abortion called "Tattoo," you're gonna have to up your game a bit. I was hoping for a really cool video to go along with a great song. Bummer.

    It was an announcement of the 'single' release, not the video release. Just happened to link to youtube, which is confusing I'll admit.

    Chickenfoot should sue their management and/or record company for lost $$$ on both albums since they seem to be almost deliberately picking the wrong singles to release to the public. When you have a song like MKOG, DD, CC, you release that shit right away. Maybe they were afraid that the songs would be seen as too poppish.

    If they want a hit, it should be both. It should be released to adult contemporary radio stations as well.

    I believe they basically threw it out there Tuesday because Tattoo came out that day. So thats most likely why a video wasn't released. The song is ok, but it will be like all of the other CF tunes from both cd's that were released. It will get some play for a few weeks then will disappear like all the rest of them did. So I'm wondering if CF is planning on releasing their next single the day VH album is released? Wouldn't surprise me.

    Dude CF has been mentioning DD being released in mid January since about the end of November at the latest,where have you been?
    That's not the case with VH who waited untill after Christmas to announce the release of their first single.

    Ok so it was a coincidence that it came out the same day. Sorry it's been a while since I've checked in on the foot so I'm a bit behind. DD is the best song on the cd and will do ok for a short while.

    It's not a video. Youtube is just a good way of giving the song out to public for free.

    Was it really a coincidence on VHIV's part?
    They did after all keep the release date a secret for the longest time.

    If that were the case I think VH would have released "Tattoo" on the same day CF released "I need a job".

    I could not agree with you more! It is as if you read my mind! Big Foot and I need a job? ugh. there are 4-5 much better songs including D.D. On the first CF there were at least 4 songs that never seen the day of light.

    Yet, I've sadly figured it out. We are old and so is the band. Corporate radio stations see no va$ue in playing them. They want young bands who would crap their pants if they had to follow CF in a live show. That my friends is the truth.
    If it ain't red then paint it!

    I think the release of "3 and 1/2 letters" was an attempt to capitalize on the "Occupy" movement that was going on big at the time.

    It failed...

    No surprise there, release a song railing against what is happening to the middle class to be played by an increasingly disgusting corporate radio landscape?
