    They were gimmicky and goofy, with even their name being a corny pun.
    They were poor singers.
    Their signature instrument was an out-of-tune violin.
    They played an odd repertoire of music, including Russian folk songs, swamp rock and Ringo Starr covers.
    They covered Fleetwood Mac's entire 'Tusk' album in the original keys.
    The band members were constantly bickering and backstabbing each other.
    One critic described their eclectic, amateurish style as 'endearing, but annoying.'
    Even though they broke up in 1990, they continue to slap together rarities collections and other 'new' material.
    They played in many different styles when it was unfashionable to do so.
    They weren't afraid of looking silly.
    They made fun of themselves and other bands.
    Former band members continue to collaborate with one another, despite their past differences.
    They have a fierce cult following.
