Music so hip you'll need a bigger belt



21st-century linkages:
As Rome Burns (c.1991)
Denver's original nerd-rock band, precursor to Flip Nasty.  Formed by Cody Weathers and John Fried in 1988, with Nick Walsh, Colby Goff and Matt Preheim as the other original members.  See, when we were in high school, this is how it was: Metallica, AC/DC, Motley Crue, Def Lepard, Ratt, Poison, Whitesnake.  Are you picking up what I'm putting down?  We were on the cutting edge, and we were derided, criticized, and teased (and I ain't talkin' hair).  Yeah?  Well who's laughing now?!  OK, still Bon Jovi.  They still laugh.  But not quite so heartily....  I see your point, yet I do not acknowledge it in my heart.  Which is a little bit broken.  From your spite.
