The band has a few good songs, most of which come about when they don't take themselves very seriously and succeed in being somewhat amusing, but then the lead singer is like "I want to make things kinda serious for a minute, and talk about this girl who left me 15 years ago." at which point their music becomes forgettable, cliche, and lame.
'Girl All The Bad Guys Want' was nominated for a Grammy in 2003, but they lost to No Doubt.
Great live, and they have to be one of the best bands ever.
And yes, 1985 was written by SR71, but it went through Jaret and was re-written.
