A great song for a great show

Until I saw "Across the Universe" I thought that "With a little help from my friends" was actually just the theme tune for "The Wonder Years."

I was wrong.

Naming my Daughter Marilyn Manson might be weirder though....

Maynard James Keenan, the lead singer of Tool (my favorite band) named his son "Devo" (after his favorite band). If I name my son "Tool" I'm pretty sure he would get beat up a lot.

I have no doubt you'll find this post funny

Listen to "Sunday Morning" by No Doubt.  You will want to harmonize and headbang at the same time.  It's really strange.
