"The Queen Is Dead" - The Smiths

Apparently, the official charts in the UK will *not* be reporting this weekend (period of mourning), so there goes any hopes of that being #1 across the pond. In related news, the surviving Sex Pistols have all said, "We don't necessarily really mean it, man-!"

I like overtime when it's a Saturday - gives me chance to catch up on some 20FR.

Nice to see that The Fags haven't been forgotten. Great band with an incredibly non-commercial name that probably doomed them.

"Rockstar" is a prototypical more cowbell song.

Certainly not by me! And as for their name, I still think the biggest factor against them was timing. They had signed to Sire just before the label's wholesale absorption into Warner Bros. and the obligatory re-organization thereafter. Light 'Em Up, their debut album (one of my favorite albums of the 2000s) got stuck in the vaults for two years, until the band finally got the master tapes back after they'd been dropped by the label altogether.

With a name like that, sure, they probably wouldn't have become a household name, but they probably could've built more of a career if Sire had stuck around a while longer.
