Q. What did the Deadhead say after the acid wore off?
A. This band sucks!
Hey, simple human, because in a world where most peoples spirits are being tugged from them and hidden behind bills and death, it's nice to get sucked into a spiral of warmth and energy that can make me foget i'm human for a while. Just relax and smoke this. Oh, and the catcy chorus is coming after Jerry rips it for another 10 minutes. (past tense - sorry brother, thanks for the tunes)
Fans defend this with the oft uttered cliche: "They are all trained musicians and have degrees and stuff." The same defense taken to an extreme would be analogous to going to a dentist for a cleaning and coming out with dentures.
Possible reasons for the popularity of these bands would be that their fans do a lot of shitty drugs such as is the case in the "techno" scene.
One is the Grateful Dead/Phish and the second is trying to sound exactly like the Grateful Dead/Phish.
"We need another Vietnam to thin out their ranks a little."
