Tune for Tuesday

Today’s Tune for Tuesday is “The Kill” by the band 30 Seconds to Mars. This alternative rock band is fronted by Jared Leto. His brother, Shannon, plays the drums, and Tomo Miličević jams on lead guitar. You may recognize Jared Leto as an actor from the old series, “My So Called Life” or movies such as Alexander or American Psycho. Not many actors can crossover to music, but I believe that Jared is one of the few that accomplished this. Jared’s smooth vocals make him one of my favorite singers in the music world (and he’s not too bad to look at…). I saw 30 Seconds to Mars in concert in during their “Welcome to the Universe” tour in 2006. The band labeled it as an Environmentour as they tried to be green even using vegetable oil to fuel their tour bus.
“The Kill” is from 30STM's second album, “A Beautiful Lie.” Not only is it a cool song, but the video is pretty sweet, too. The video portrays elements from the movie, “The Shining.”

He's got a good voice and I loved the Shining and 1401.

I've never heard this before. Kinda like it. Although I liked Jared Leto's looks a lot better before he turned into Emo Boy. ;)

I loved My So Called Life. Great song, too - I kidn't know that was his band.
Watching the video, I couldn't help thinking Jared Leto should've been cast in the movie Twilight.

I think I prefer his acting to his music. I love this song and a few of their others, but they usually just make me want to go watch Fight Club.

Kim-Both good movies!
Carrie-I don't know, I don't think he looks too bad in eyeliner ;0)
GGirl- He's had a lot of phases lookswise! He's probably trying to look alternative to match his music!
Adrienne-Which character do you think he would have played?
Rob- Was he in Fight Club? Good movie, Ed Norton is amazing in it! Don't remember Jared surprisingly!
