You know, i actually haven't watched the whole show, just up until the clip of them using the song. Its when the dude is on the phone with his GF and she is all pissed at him and its kinda a rough moment. lol. But on the link it at least gives us credit there, lol.

Apparently we have to wait like 6 months for royalty checks....gah boo hisss

Congratz !!!
Hope to see more people in this situation.
As for the 6 months payment waiting, well, at least you know that you'll get some money.

not related

I remember I had a concert contracted by a BIG and fancy corporation for a 10 or 20 years anniversary of corporation and was in the contract that they will pay us in less than 2 weeks... after 6 months we still didn't get the money.

Yeah... I've even had that problem with really simple events before.

Hell.. took us 3 months to get paid for a high school homecoming we played. You just gotta start spamming the hell out of em with invoices til they finally pay your ass.

Some music company a few months ago found us on Myspace and said they work with MTV, and we were like "sure" since you get spammed all sorts of things on Myspace. But we signed a non exclusive license and low and behold they weren't shi**ing us, guess they really worked with MTV.

Mental..well done dude. Besides, it's a suprise to see any music on MTV so the fact they played it is monumental.
