Why they might be annoying
It seems like the only songs radio stations will play these days from this band are 'Plowed,' and to a lesser extent, 'Molly.'
Of all the members who existed when the band was notable, only vocalist Vinnie Dombroski remains.
Upon their debut, they were dismissed as a Stone Temple Pilots ripoff.
Many of the tracks on 'Wax Ecstatic' were from a failed attempt at a concept album about the death of a drag queen from Memphis.
Vinnie Dombroski has a number of tattoos and once had to check into rehab for a drinking problem.
Why they might not be annoying
They had five songs reach the top twenty of Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
Thanks to Stone Temple Pilots pulling out due to Scott Weiland's drug problems, they got to open for Kiss on the first date of their highly anticipated reunion tour.
They appeared on a John Lennon tribute album, doing a cover of 'Isolation.'
They also appeared on a tribute album for Saturday Morning cartoon themes, doing a cover of the theme from Speed Racer.
'Miles,' a song from their album 'Rotting Pinata,' includes the final two lines from the Robert Frost poem 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.'
