jump.jpgFrom the mailbag: “[BAND REDACTED BECAUSE THIS LITTLE STUNT IS, IN FACT, THAT PATHETIC] has been banned from Graceland! The band was touring the mansion of Elvis Presley on September 24th when front man [REDACTED] decided to jump into the pool. The guards removed him and he is now banned from Graceland for life! ‘I just wanted to go for a swim,’ he said.”

  1. Jay-C

    Spinal Tap?

  2. Rob Murphy

    Cortney Love

  3. Josh Mock

    Saw this one in my inbox this morning too. I’ll second your motion and not mention their name because, when you see who it is, you’ll realize that this is clearly an attempt to remind people that they still exist.

  4. Rob Murphy

    Jared Leto

  5. the rich girls are weeping

    It’s Kings of Leon, isn’t it?

    I was thinking Black Lips until the other commenter mentioned “attempt to remind people they still exist.”

    Curse you, Pollstar. What’s the harm in listing shows that have already taken place?

    It was Bradley from Sublime, wasn’t it.

    Hahaha. A Google search finds the article pretty easily.

    And OhToWant1Thing is definitely right, because I totally forgot about these guys.

    i’m gonna take the post’s title to be a clue and guess Heroine Sheiks’ frontman Shannon Selberg. Sounds about par for his course.

  11. El Zilcho!

    Wow, those dudes are still a band?

  12. Bob Loblaw

    He wasn’t actually jumping into the pool as a publicity stunt–one
    of the other people on the Graceland tour had just set him on fire.

    I once worked with a guy who did some production work with this band. He said and I quote, “They’re a great band. LEAD SINGER’S NAME is very cool. He just can’t sing for real.”

  14. Dick Laurent is dead.

    I always wondered where nu-metal bands went when they died…besides returning to a life of menial drudgery.

    Aah, yes, the “Horrible Band Obviously Not Listening To Its Influences”.

    I really feel disappointed for myself for googling this article to find out who it was, but I’m hoping to redeem myself in my own eyes with the onion reference. I’m not sure if it’s working.

  16. Charlie Kerfelds Jetsons Tee

    Ugh. Fuck this band.

  17. TheMojoPin

    I love the way the water slaps his ass.

    I found out who it was and laughed heartily. And yes, fuck them.
