  2. This sucks, but I have to say: when I saw AC/DC I had hearing loss for a few days afterward.

    And that was one time.

    Imagine what being in that band must be like.

  3. I’ve heard the lead singer of The Hives has asked to front the band. I doubt it will happen but, still funny/interesting none the less.
