A band that, when it was first formed, was worth listening to. However, since they were launched into international stardom after the release of "Happiness is a Fish You Can't Catch", their third album, they started on a gradual downward slope, resulting in sell-outs who now are more concerned with aesthetics and "catchy-ness" then with producing good-quality music.
Some of their titles released before they became a joke were Starseed, Supersatellite and Clumsy
