Hasn't that band been around for over 10 years already?

I'm not a fan, although I did find it funny that when my brother saw them and AFI on Warped a few years back, they each came out on stage dressed in the other band's clothes (AFI dressed in hawaiian shirts and fezzes, Me First as a bunch of goths).

That's crazy! Next you'll be telling me that the singer of Lagwagon has another band!

I remember seeing pictures from that. As I recall, AFI lost a game of poker to the Gimme Gimmes and had to wear Hawaiian shirts during their set. The Gimme Gimmes—determined not to be upstaged by that sort of hilarity—put on black wigs, black vinyl shirts and pants, and black fishnet shirts and stockings, spoofing AFI's onstage look. Epic laughs ensued.

This was in 2001, by the way.

They have some pretty big strikes against them. Strike one: they have Fat Mike in their band. Strike two: "punk" covers of "pop" songs are not funny, cool, or interesting. Strike three: profit.

Ha! That's pretty cool actually, anyone have any video of either performance?
