Death Cab For Cutie Discuss Their Crappiest Jobs Before Hitting It Big

|

“There are few things more demoralizing than groveling for a job that you don’t even want,” said Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard at last month’s VH1 Storytellers taping when he introduced and explained the inspiration behind “Employment Pages.” Been there, bro! It was a statement that’s bitter truth stuck to us until now, but since that song didn’t wind up making our on-air show, you’re not likely to hear it when the band’s Storytellers airs tonight at 11 p.m. Luckily for you, however, VH1.com has a Bing online exclusive of Death Cab performing that track, and we even snagged some footage of Ben and bassist Nick Harmer talking about one of the most demoralizing jobs that Ben first had in Seattle during the days they were fighting to make a splash in the music biz. Check out the interview below, and if you’re still hungry for DCFC, feast on already-released clips “You Are a Tourist,” “Title and Registration,” and, hot off the presses, “The New Year.”
