"When it comes down to it, no one’s really cool."
Andrew VanWyngarden

Interviewer: Andrew, do you have a tattoo that's anatomically correct?
Andrew: Yess, I have a tattoo but it's just a word on my chest
interviewer:    What word is it?
Andrew: REEAALLL
interview: Ahh so it's to differentiate from all the fake Andrew's out there
Andrew: Yeah it's for when the robots take over



"I would like, stare at my salad, and that was like really the first time I ever really had like flashes of the whole world like falling apart of collapsing. Like, the salad just didn’t make any sense at all, if that makes any sense. Like, ‘what the hell is happening, why is there like, little pieces of plants on a plate? Like, what is going on?’ and it’s like this little moments when like nothing makes any sense at all."
Andrew Vanwyngarden

"We met through an internet dating service."
Andrew VanWyngarden on how he met Ben Goldwasser

"I got this email from my dad when we were in France saying ‘don’t shoot heroin!’ I’m like ‘get off my back, dad, I’m not gonna shoot up!"
Andrew VanWyngarden
 
"I was like marveling at the simplicity of a porta potty. It’s so beautiful, I mean like you do your thing and then you’re like ‘I have something to do right now’, but you can’t do it, but really you just have this moment where all you have to do is walk out into the world. It’s beautiful."
Andrew VanWyngarden on the beauty of porta potties 

"The things is, I usually sing with my eyes closed and every single time everyone’s like “Did you see that girls boobs?!” and I’m like, “Nooo!"
Andrew Vanwyngarden

"Lots of strange colored bright girl outfits."
Andrew Vanwyngarden

"I’m going to say “kittens,” which can be used as an adjective. Then I would say he’s very nice. He’s humble, he’s talented. And stylish."
Andrew Vanwyngarden describing Ben Goldwasser

"It was just a stupid idea we had to try and make Googling us hard. It worked for a while when no one knew who we were but now if you type in ‘MGMT band’ or whatever it comes straight up so we kinda failed there."
Andrew on MGMT’s title

"We think our music is really sincere, even though some of it is tongue-in-cheek. We did this EP called We Care/We Don’t Care, which sort of sums us up. What we’ve always been about is contradictions."
Andrew Vanwyngarden

"Could you imagine, if like, someone went on that ride and they had a brain hemorrhage and they like died and then there’s music like *fist pumps* and some guy laughing over the P.A speaker like “MUAHAHAHAH” and that’s the last thing you hear when you die."
Andrew VanWyngarden

"We get to live in this little magical world we’ve made for ourselves."
Andrew Vanwyngarden

"When we go into discos, they can’t top our dance moves"
Andrew Vanwyngarden

"We wanted it to be loose. On the first album, Ben and I just kept adding stuff to the point that it was ridiculous. But this time we tried to restrain ourselves and Pete was there to be like, “No, we don’t need to add 20 saxophone parts to this section."
Andrew Vanwyngarden

Andrew: “Do you think that natural down pillows fly better in storms rather than synthetic fill?”
Jenna: “I’d imagine the air flow would keep it cruising…yes. Which do you prefer to sleep with?”
Ben: “I’m allergic to down so…”
Andrew: “You are?”
Ben: “Yes.”
Andrew: “I’m down with down.”

"Yeah, we want to play a show exclusively for dogs at some point. We aren’t a joke band, but we think it would be really amazing if there was a stadium full of dogs…"
Andrew VanWyngarden

Interviewer:   What effect do you want your music to have on people?
Andrew:   We want to teleport them to another world. Let them meditate and take them out of all the chaos.

"Gorgonzola? Are you out of controlla? All I want is mozzarella and tomatoes with ma soda."

"Butt verification complete" - Andrew VanWyngarden


It was actually Matt who said that. But he would not have said it if Andrew wouldn't be like:'I just saw that girl's butt, hhh.' ;)

andrew: i'm looking for love *blinks with the eyelashes*
interview lady: oh.eh ... i'm a bit stunned now.
andrew: you're stoned?
i've been watching this so many times  :D

I like how in many interviews the guy asking questions will say something deep about Time To Pretend and be all 'The lyrics are eye opening really, and kind of worry me about today's world. You of course aren't really like what the lyrics say, right?' Then they'll pause and say 'well we like models...'

One of my favorites, by Andrew: "You can be psychedelic walking to McDonald's" The interviewer seemed pretty baffled by the logic of that comment.  :D

Surreal, but GENIUS moment at the end of their set at Reading 2008...

Andrew: "Thank you very much Reading Festival. We will eat you later"
Someone (possibly Ben): "You can count on it".
James (Pointing outside the tent): "The salt and pepper is over there".

Bizarre, but superb!!

I loved it when Andrew and Ben where writing down ideas on a paper
Andrew: "And we´re gonna have Sheryl Crow here"
Interviewer: "Really? Why Sheryl?"
Andrew: "I don´t know, just to make uncomfortable"

Well once in an interview (I lost the link  :() They were asked "If you were to fuck any chick, who would it be?" A: There was this one chick on our forum... Her name was like Elena Rosa or something. She was a... she was a hot babe. B:Diddo."

Makes me feel loved that two gay guys would bone me.  :D
