Mock Stars of Glitter and Spandex

Tragedy -- An all Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees

"People would sooner pay $10 to see four guys pretending to be KISS than $5 to see four guys playing original songs nobody had ever heard of before... There are now hundred - probably thousands- of rock bands who make a living by method acting." -Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs (Chuck Klosterman)
