I still can’t stand them. They are obnoxious with their pedo song.


This is insane, They released only five albuns, but reached 124 million CSPC! David Bowie for instance, needed to release 27 albums to produce the same numbers.


This websites design is atrocious! I’d offer some tips, but I’m not even sure where to start.



Looks great now!
