A 60's/70's band fronted by the extremely talented and legendary lou reed and backed by otherwise mediocre musicians and entertainers. Many claim to have been tormented as children because of their listening to the band, and thus use the experience as the driving force behind the whole "you guys just dont get me" persona.
"Hey man, Im just going to go read some Catcher in the Rye while touching myself and then maybe put on the velvet underground album and drown myself in a puddle of my perpetual sorrow."

1) Great band.

2) Contrary to popular belief (as helped by Brian from Family Guy), the term "velvet underground" does not necessarily mean "vagina." In fact, it may come to a shock to most people that it is slang for the subculture of sadomasochism. That's right, the whole time you've been listening to the band you've actually been subconsciously supporting an underground S&M club.
Lou: Dude, are you into Velvet Underground?
Reed: Dude, since when have you been a sadomasochist? *Pushes Lou away, not wanting to get involved with whips and chains*
