Get the Dad Band mug.
A band, like Wilco, whose primary audience is comprised of dads with cool teenage kids, but who still attract enough cool teenage kids to be actually cool.
Joe: Have you heard the new Wilco CD?
Amy: No way, man. My dad still hasn't taken "Yankee Foxtrot Hotel" out of the Saab.
Lisa: Yeah. They're such a cool dad band.
