    One of my favorite bands. Just got all four of their albums as a gift and couldn't be more stoked, now I no longer have to rely on Spotify for my fix.

    Are you a sucker for long band names that have at least 30 letters? Are you searching for long band names without genre restrictions? Do you know a band which band name is long enough and has at least 25 listeners? Then I welcome you to our new group Collective of longest band names ever and please share your recommended artists with us! Thank you!

    This band sings about things that are real. Like not paying rent or having your car backed into. Probably the most amazing topics i have heard ever!

    "I hate the similar artists for these guys, just because they are all in gh and rb don't make them similar." It's the way the algorithms work. The artists are going to have a lot of common listeners, because the common listeners all got into those bands from Rock Band. That said...love this band, and love Second and Eighteen.

    I've been a fan of rock&roll, metal and guitar virtuosos for years now and I was really surprised by how much Second and Eighteen spoke to me... bizarre... great album, although I was less impressed with the other three. They were still great. Honest Bob is currently presiding over a broadening of my musical taste, along with such artists as Jamiroquai and BB king
