243. Minutemen

With an uncanny ability to fuse Punk music with almost any style, Minutemen enjoyed a healthy cult following in the early 80’s. Musically tight and always experimenting, the Southern California group became a College radio staple and though commercial success eluded them, the critical response from their 1984 album, Double Nickels on a Dime leaves them a solid legacy in the Underground music world.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2005   Country of Origin: U.S.A.

      When I read Double Nickels, it made me think of Nickelback, because that was a band of man sluts. Lead singer Chad Kroeger did not hide the fact at all that his goal is to get as many women as possible. He talks about it in interviews as well as when he is on stage. A lot of bands will have management pick out ladies from the crowd. But Kroeger doesn’t hide the fact on stage that he will do it himself. One account reported that he is “hung like a horse dildo”. I’m sure that doesn’t hurt his chances when the groupies hear about that.
