So that there will be no misinformed discussion about our street credibility or our punk integrity, let it be known that The Monkey Power Trio has already sold out. It was a fluke, but we jumped all over the chance to make commercial money like the greedy human pigs that we are.

You see, one day a friend of the band passed an mp3 file of our song, "You Gotta Have Hope" along to another friend. This second friend happened to be at work at a prominent advertising agency. He wanted to annoy his hungover boss, so he turned up the volume of the sloppy guitar, horrible drumming, desperately screaming vocals and high piercing recorder of "You Gotta Have Hope." The boss wasn't annoyed. He added the song to a pitch for a Fox Sports Network promotion. We know that some Marvin Gaye song was also on the list. Eventually, a Fox Sports Network television commercial featuring The Monkey Power Trio's almost-song, "You Gotta Have Hope" was aired around the country for about six-months.
