"Dark Side of Me" is flagrant filler, too. It's like an even cheesier take on Shinedown - Second Chance. Pure pop bubblegum with zero interesting going on musically.

NWFT is so terrible aside from the title track. Definitely take YOTBR over it any day.

Come to think of it, this is probably the one band I can point to having changed my "trajectory" in musical taste toward what it is today. Sometime in the fall of 2001 I heard Amnesiac (I think...

Yeah, I'd say Bad Hair Day and Running With Scissors were his peak. Pretty much every parody on those two are pure gold.

QFT. Literally had never heard any of the parody songs.

"Tacky" seems like the standout to me. Not quite "White & Nerdy" or "Party in the CIA," but some good laughs.

"The Focus" is solid. I wasn't too sure on the first couple listens, but I'm digging it now. As long as it's one of the weaker tracks on the upcoming LP, I'll be more than happy.
