Clutch is an American rock band from Germantown, Maryland, formed in 1990. Clutch invented rock. Each Clutch album is marked by a distinct and cohesive sound. Strong blues influences have also become prominent in the releases of the later years.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is actually based on true events in Tim Sult and Neil Fallon's life. They are the saviors of Rock and the World. They traveled backwards through time to create Rock (in 1733, for the record) and came back to 1992 to hone and shape it like the Rocksmiths that they are. They demand your worship!! Who are you to deny them?

Neil Fallons' (The lead singer) lyrics at first angry and serious in tone have become characterized with intelligence, wordplay, and often humor. Their songs make frequent reference to history, mythology, popular culture, and religion:

"I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth", tells the story of a fisherman who discovers the corpse of Lincoln's assassin in the Susquehanna River.

"Burning Beard": "Every time I look out my window/ same three dogs looking back at me. Every time I open my windows/ cranes fly in to terrorize me."

His younger sister, Mary Alice Fallon-Yeskey, is employed at Charm City Cakes, and appears on the Food Network series Ace of Cakes.
"After listening to Clutch I have found out that if your not learning your retiring, you've got to take some risks to learn. There's always something to learn."

"There's a sacred, ancient dialog between the musician and the listener. When that happens, it's priceless. That's what people get out of Clutch. It's more of a philosophical reward than anything else."

Clutch is lLike Marlon Brando, but bigger. All around Pure Rock Fury.

Exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.

Great, Essential, and Potent rolled into a single word. Clutch is also used to describe something that is done, not something that is.
Stealing your orange soda was so clutch.

Pulling the special move on Jenna was clutch.

The assembly that engages and disengages a transmission. Performing successfully while under pressure. A group of baby birds. A ladies handbag. A grasp or hold.
Nice work with that clutch dumbass, that gear didn't need all those teeth anyway!
