3. The house of boo (questionable)

HORSE the band is extremely energetic and are always drunk, at least at shows. they almost always end with "cutsman", and due to popular belief, they fucking hate when that song is requested for various and obvious reasons.
HORSE the band is a very funny group of people, they often make great, and in depth/immature jokes on stage and in interviews.
"Alright, so I guess the best place to star…"
N: Fuck you! (Laughs) I'm sorry. No, I'm not really sorry, keep going.
"HORSE the band is five stellar gods running from a haunted future they can't possibly forget. Formed on the mean streets of Los Angeles in 2027 A.D. the members of H the B began to create their exotic sound to fight the past and recreate the future." - myspace.com/horsetheband
