        Here's a suggestion: take your vague troll post to another forum and leave us alone. This is a guitar forum: talk about guitars.

          I'm sorry man. If you weren't there in '88 during the Nothing's Shocking tour, and didn't see them in a dingy little club before they were big, (City Gardens, NJ) playing their hearts out, (top 10 show for me) and didn't see Perry fondled by Navarro after unzipping his plastic "onsies", and, didn't hear the devastating musicianship or see the entire crowd in the palm of their hands, nor did you sense years of utter crap music being washed away years before Nirvana, you may not get it. However, I remember them fondly and respect them immensely for their contribution. Wish they hadn't broken up so soon. You had to be there.

            Their history is colored, their frontman looks like the junkie who never died, and well, the original band couldn't play together again ever ....
            Anyway the shoplifting song was just pure scratch.
            Did he really fart in the microphone during the solo?

              Maybe a better question is, what's so wrong with them?

              I always thought they were kinda original. To each their own.

              The cool thing about music is if you don't like it you don't have to listen...unless you were locked away in Guantanimo.

                Yeah I know if I saw the guitar player fondling the singer . . . that would sell me on the band.

                    Um, possibly the best guitarist/frontman duo in the history of alternative rock. Other than that, not much.

                        yeah, originally bad! nah jk.


                        that songs in San Andreas, it sucks as well as the 3 or 4 other songs ive heard by them imo. Ill look into their "older" stuff before i make a final judgement if you say so

                          That's probably why I don't like them. To me, alternative is the Sturgeon's Law genre.

                          Flame away for me having a closed mind.
