  • best punk band in the world
  • @negroid: Your sister sucks... -_-
  • this band sucks

At worst, sifting through it all can be time-consuming, but it's still light years faster than snail mail. Infinitely cheaper, too.
  • "Music died w/ disco" <--- Poison Girls, among others, were doing some pretty disco-as-fuck music at times that managed to be incredibly affecting, so I can't endorse this. Also, Giorgio Moroder is pretty cool, man. :|
  • how do i become them
