Sound description: Basic pop songs with sing-a-long elements. It's all for fun...after all, our motto was always"It's just a band."
Influences: Depends on who you ask, but collectively, it's fair to say: Ramones, Too Much Joy, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, They Might Be Giants (even though they're buttholes), Keel, .bloom, Descendents, Tom Petty, Alabama, Ogden Edsl, Dead Milkmen, REO Speedwagon, and anyone else that's ever written a catchy song that we stole from.

The first song we ever wrote as a group was over the phone "Teacher in Space." Played our first show without a drummer. Recorded four full lengths, one Xmas album and a ton of other irrelevant stuff that we hope noone can find. Won Ticketmaster band battle, Kool Cigarettes band battle to play Horde Fest with Blues Traveler and Smashing Pumpkins. Wrote tons of songs about ex-girlfriends. Ended in 1999 without owing anybody any money. No band member ever got hit for something they said onstage. Have written -- at last count -- more than 120 songs over the course of seven years. Nobody ever went to jail -- on band time.
