“All that punk shit sucks, it doesn’t belong on this world, it belongs on fucking Mars man!”
That, of course, is the ever quotable soundbite from the intro to the below song – a classic and suprisingly pretty much one hit wonder from American Hi-Fi.
I say surprising, of course, because they’re a great band. Take the below bonus clip – a live performance of the song The Art Of Losing which I’m willing to bet you’ve likely never heard before. It’s a fun song!
Surprising to think too that when the band got their first chance to play live on television, it wasn’t Flavor Of The Weak that they played, it was something new that they felt was just as good.
The good news is, of course, that this band is still active – they’ve never broken up. Check them out on a streaming service or something and you’ll see what I mean – they have a lot of good stuff to listen to.
Also, here’s a fun fact: Their frontman Stacey Jones (not to be confused with Casey Jones from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) is more or less the Dave Grohl of punk rock, having formerly been the drummer for Veruca Salt and Letters For Cleo. Both fantastic bands.
