  • I know you're out there, with the rage in your eyes and your megaphones. Saying "all is forgiven!" I loved this stuff when it came out 30 years ago, and it still holds up.

  • Saw them on Friday and they rocked my world. They can still set the venue on fire after all these years, god bless those old farts ♥
  • I know I'm 40 years late to the party, but this band is awesome. [3] why the fuck have I not been a huge fan of this band while knowing who they are all this time
  • Reelin in the years [2] goddamn, you know it
  • ah, the 'dan. gotta love 'em. is there anybody else who does harmony like these guys?
  • Reelin in the years
