1. A band you don't know about.

2. They are allegedly from Louisiana where the four, maybe even five at first, allegedly met in the 60's in high school. They decided to go west for San Francisco, but their truck broke down and they ended up in San Mateo.
In 1971, the group sent their album "The Warner Bros. Album" to Harve Halverstadt at Warner Bros. He didn't enjoy it too much and sent it back, but becuase the band did not include a name, he sent it back to "Residents", and they adopted it as their name.
The Residents have been around for a long time and have produced many albums. They are a great band that focus on being artistic and experimenting with new technology.
1. Kid A: Do you know who The Residents are?
Kid B: Aren't they those people with the eyeballs who make shitty music?

2. Kid A: Why don't many people know of The Residents?
Kid B: More than likely because they are different.

The greatest band no one has ever heard.
Four consistent decades of high rated albums and short films really speaks for itself.
Seriously, go listen to The Residents.
Sure, their albums are harder to find than Jimmy Hoffa's first lay, but that's no excuse!

“There are a lotta cats that just want to get in there and they roll with the homies. And they really don’t want to be a part of nuthin’. They ain’t from no neighborhood. They might be in there for meth or crack, bogus credit cards or checks or whatever. They just want to fly under the radar. They are just gonna be considered Resident South Siders.”

J.D. Rutherford, Prison Break Raw, September 16, 2020

Ex. 2

“And lastly, at the very bottom of the rung, are what are known as residents. These are individuals who live in Hispanic gang territories or have relatives in the Hispanic gangs, but are not gang members themselves.”
