Hate it when that happens. You see a picture of them and go "fuckin' hell, I'm 'avin some of THAT!" Then you listen to them and just think, why?

Exhibit A:

White Zombie (apart from their first album, Soul Crusher, which is fucking brilliant)


 


Exhibit B:

The Lunachicks

 


Exhibit C:

The Distillers (well, Brody Dalle anyway)

yeah, the same happens with album covers... band names... how many times you get a album just because of the artwork and feel disappointed after listening to it?

Well, maybe just chappy to the left and chappy second from the right. And there's a song or two that are all right. But generally, shit.

I don't pay much nevermind to the way bands look. It's too bad most of them don't have good fashion sense, though.

White Zombie? Look cool?! They look like any standard shitty metal or "grunge" band from the 90s, man.
And Brody is fucking HOT, plus they have some really good songs (my best friend remains that Choral Fang is a fucking awesome album, I haven't heard it all, though).

I don't think many of the bands posted in this htread look great. Bloc Party coming ahead of the head, I'd say.
