This band rules. I'm not normally a fan of the punk genre, but I can't stop listening to "How to Make Friends and Influence People".

How many of you agree?

I have to admit that I've always wanted to like them more than i actually do. They're great in interviews and always strike me as just the kind of band that I'd love, but when it comes to listening to them they never seem to pull it off. It's as though when it comes to recording they run out of ideas, having already exhausted their creative energies on 'eyecatching' promotion methods, etc. A shame really.

Their music isn't great, even though I do like a few songs.

I must say, though, I am a little repelled by the album covers with bloody naked women and the guitarist who only wears underwear.

They're in some way related to QOTSA aren't they?
Never managed to get into them, like someone above I've always wanted to just never really could.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

They're badass. I ****in' love this band to death.

Except when I see pics/videos of them playing live and there's DICKS EVERYWHERE.
