Comments

Wow, this is the first Sound I ever listened to. So I guess I'm pretty old-school if this is a classic.

Ira Kaplin is a fucking punk. He shits on his fans and they gobble it up. When I go to your concerts, throw me a bone and play Autum Sweater not thirty minutes of fucking feedback noise, you fucks. I don't like being hazed by having my eardrums ruptured when all I want to hear is a fucking song. Rock snob does not apply, try rock assholes.

I'm so angry

It's funny to read comments you post years later. Sorry for polluting the internet.
