    The Polish metal band has its own page now and all the top tracks on this page are by the American punk legend, so I'm confused why the photo of the Polish band keeps getting voted up.

    Would love to see him solo. Last time he came thru DC solo, I had to go to another show that night. Of course, from my friend's report, Iota was over packed w/ people. We did get to see X last tour; the best was at the end w/ John & Exene solo. I hope The Knitters will tour again: the best of X w/out Billy getting in the way of the harmony. Hope Exene can tour again.

    American John Doe has so many more plays than the other guys that it pisses me off whenever the picture is of the polish band. We really just need two pages for this situation. John Doe and "John Doe The Band" or something.
