I don't mean this in any holier-than-thou way or anything, but I am legitamately surprised at the number of people in their 20's/early 30's on AP who have not heard of Alkaline Trio prior to this news.
I hadn't got any of their songs til I saw them at soundwave in 09
But Id only heard their name up until then and only heard 1 song "stupid kid"
But in saying that outside of my own iPod I haven't heard their music since at Rock and punk clubs that spin their genre here in Australia. I guess they always were that bit too moody to be played for parties and mainstream radio
I do like the idea of Jordan NFG someone said before.
Who had those YouTube clips of the German guy who literally thought he was Tom delonge. It was scary. He could join haha
