One of the grittiest punk bands ever to have produced an album, The Fall (The name is derived from the Albert Camus novel) are led by Mark E. Smith, and have gone through approximately ninety-thousand different members.
This may be due to Mr. Smith's aggressive nature, and tendency to attack Radio One DJs.
Their latest album (at time of writing) is the compilation "50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong".
No. No they can't.
Mark E. Smith - "Well anybody who compares us to the Buzzcocks gets a slug, usually."
Harsh words, but fair.

One of the best fucking bands that has ever existed; that nobody has ever heard of.
The Fall are a great band, and Mark E. Smith is a genius.

Don't call them punk. They're too cool to be punk. Punk rock sucks. The Fall are their own genre.

In reference to Upstate New York street slang, “The Falls” is the nickname given to the northernmost part of the Capital Region and Albany/Glens Falls Combined Statistical Area. It’s mainly used by people who live in or around “The Falls” aka the cities and towns of Glens Falls, South Glens Falls, Hudson Falls, and occasionally other nearby areas such as Fort Edward, when differentiating between other areas in the Capital Region or when discussing the area in general.
“Where you livin now fam?”

“I just moved outta The Falls now I got a place down in Albany. Crime might be higher but people are way less trashy so I like it.”

Worst place in upstate bruh I’m tellin you, “The Falls” is just some shit that some people call this shithole cuz if you’re not from the area you can’t tell where one scumbag ass place ends and where one begins like fr some people are fooled by Lake George and move here cuz it’s the closest “suburb” outside of Saratoga but in reality your neighbors will deadass piss in a bottle and leave it on your porch assuming the shit isn’t rotting away cuz your landlord lives in Pakistan and doesn’t give a fuck about y’all as long as he gets paid. And that’s another thing- the only places you can afford are trashy apartments unless you went to college for 6 years/have a career that relocated you here with a head start in life. If you from here (which most people aren’t) you’re fucked. If you’re not from here, you’re fucked cuz the shitty economy sucked you in and made you a statistic that they like to write off as “inconclusive” so they can attract more tourists. Get out while you can or you’ll end up selling drugs while your girl’s sucking dick for rent. Btw fuck that other definition it’s dumb as shit
“What’s poppin with The Falls lately?”

“Besides my neighbors keeping me up til 5am everynight with drunken arguments, Stateys just shut down the only pizza place in town that had good Pills from the kitchen so now the fiends are going crazy in the street looking for new dealers to rat out

“Damn bro I was just tryna be nice you don’t gotta give me your life story homie”

“Yeah but this is urban dictionary and technically I’m just talking to myself cuz I’m high as shit

“Oh shit facts my bad”
