“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.”

“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.”

An avant-garde band that started in the 70s and continues to record and tour today. They keep their identities secret by wearing masks onstage and in all their publicity, and have never released their names to the public. The main elements of the Residents' music are the highly experimental instrumentation and production, distorted vocals, heavy repetition and a favoring of weirdness over displaying any actual musical talent, of which they may very well have none.
"Man, those eyeball masks the Residents wear are hella tight. Do you think they'll tour with Renaldo and the Loaf again soon?"
