About Do the Collapse

Do the Collapse is the 11th album by Dayton, Ohio indie rock group Guided by Voices. In contrast with their lo-fi reputation, the album features glossy production work from Ric Ocasek, which drew a mixed reception from critics and fans. "Teenage FBI" was featured on the soundtrack to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV-series. It was also featured on NCAA Football 2006. "Hold On Hope" was featured on the Scrubs episode "My Occurrence" as well as the 2000 film Attraction. "Hold On Hope" was covered by country singer Glen Campbell on his 61st album Ghost on the Canvas in 2011. The track 'Teenage FBI' was named the 160th on the '500 Greatest Modern Rock Song of All Time' by 97X in 2006. In his introduction to James Greer's book Guided by Voices: A Brief History: Twenty-One Years of Hunting Accidents in the Forests of Rock and Roll, Academy Award-winning film maker Steven Soderbergh referenced the album stating "that album Ric Ocasek produced was terrific."
