Remember when Long Beach's Two Guns made it the season finale of Jersey Shore?
Here's what lead singer Kevin Poush has to say about the situation: "We submitted our material to MTV sometime last year and they've ended up using like eight of the 11 songs on their shows." (That includes two or three from the first season.)
Poush adds, "It's pretty cool because when it airs live on TV, there's a little pop-up thing on the bottom of the screen that says something like, 'Artist You Are Listening To: Two Guns. Song: The Strays.' And then it says to go buy it or hear more at Rhapsody."
In the hours since its airing, the song has turned into Two Guns' top selling song on iTunes. Poush says, "Apparently the show is receiving 5 million viewers each week so I'm sure that helps the cause!"
Full disclosure: Kevin Poush is the Club Account Executive over in the Display Advertising department of OC Weekly.
