CENTURY 21 PRESENTS #WorldsWorstGarageBand
The bands were paid for their talents by Century 21 and are fully aware of what the campaign is called. These self-styled rockstars love what they do, and they’re not afraid to laugh at themselves. These bands are definitely in on the joke. They hail from places like south Florida and Leeds, UK and we can even arrange interviews with the artists if you would like.
Why would Century 21 Real Estate seek out, and pay for, bands who assault our eardrums? Because no matter how good your neighbors’ music is, if it’s too loud, you’re going to want to move. Fast. Century 21 helps people do just that. And who knows? Maybe these videos will help these musicians make some moves fast. Or at least be able to buy some sound proofing.

DAN FARBER “LIGHTS”
Beginning with melodic keys and mellow, catchy vocals, you’re turned completely on your head within a split second as the track nose dives into heavy pounding 808’s and crunchy synths. As the piano makes its second appearance, it’s accompanied by a soft, euphonious acoustic guitar – fueling the passion behind each fleeting word. Just like that, you’re knocked off your feet once again as the sawing synths against a myriad hi-hats and snares take over the rest of the track.
