Isn't this phrase some aquabat-inside-joke?
I remember hearing it somewhere in a song, don't remember where.

Anyway, I used to like them. Newer stuff is alright, but somewhat embarrassing to listen to and enjoy. Older stuff is fun/hilarious.

Not so much an "inside joke" as the Truth (capital "T" :p ) according to The Commander.

Only if you're insecure.

And woah, Endymion, that's pretty sweet. Christian Jacobs is rock.

More like, you should kill yourself if you listen to it and enjoy it. :P I tried to like them and check them out, but the music was just horrible.

The Aquabats are joy incarnate. And who hates joy? Communists, that's who. Damn dirty reds.

:( You're a sad person, I fear you may have no soul.

So you honestly think Crash/Chainsaw/Jimmy have no musicianship? They can craft some pretty nice hooks and melodies. And the Bat Commander, goofy as he is, has a pretty amazing range of vocal styles. He can rap, sing, do nu-metal vocals, Elvis impersonations, basic punk/ska vocals, the whole lot.

Just because a band isn't "serious" doesn't mean they're not any good as "serious musicians". The creativity is still there all the same, goofy or otherwise.

What albums have you heard, anyway Llamas?

Just because a band isn't "serious" doesn't mean they're not any good as "serious musicians". The creativity is still there all the same, goofy or otherwise. and when did I say that? I love tenacious d, for instance.


What albums have you heard, anyway Llamas? No idea. There was a thread about them on here before, and people were posting a bunch of songs and videos by them. They had a fun stage presence and looked fun to watch... but oh my poor ears. :(

And I'm still just confused as to how you can think that way.

Well I think they're a pretty sweet band, unlike many believe on the forums. Ska Robot Army and Playdough are totally awesome songs! Much like a B-52's cross American modern punk band. *Thumbs Up for the Aquabats!*
