Never heard of that band, but listening to that song they sound like a second-rate rip-off of Creed.

My favorite Pearl Jam song, even though you can only understand one word out of every five (if you're lucky)

Spoiler:
Unsealed
On a porch a letter sat
Then you said i wanna leave it again
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand
And on the sand I wanna leave it again... yeah
On a weekend I wanna wish it all away yeah...
And they called and I said that I want what I said
And then I call out again
And the reason oughta leave her calm I know
I said i dont know whether
Im the boxer or the bag
Ah yeah ehh....
Can you see them
Out on the porch
But they dont wave
I see them round the front way yeah
And I know I dont want to stay...

Make me cry <guitar solo>

Ooooh I see
I dont know theres something else
I wanna drum it all away
Oh I said I dont, I dont know whether Im a boxer or the bag
Ah yeah ehh....
Can you see them
Out on the porch
But they dont wave
I see them round the front way yeah
And I know I dont want to stay
I dont wanna stay (2x)
Dont
Dont wanna
Oh... yeah... oooh...

It's probably their most famous b-side (to Jeremy, I believe).

"She lies and says that she still likes them, can't find a better band..." I forget the rest, but it was funny... ish

Make me fries.

I've heard this song numerous times and even read the actual lyrics JasonF posted but I still can only understand one out of every 8 words in that song. Its like some bizarre reverse Ozzy .

I've never liked Pearl Jam and I like what this line hints at for the rest of the song.

Makes me wish I came up with those lyrics.

I don't get it. The subtitles are not what the guy is saying. Whatever happened to this band anyway? They had some videos on MTV then disappeared. I guess from the quality of this video you can tell they really went downhill. This looks like something on local access, not something MTV would ever show.

The videos are just a joke.

Well, they disappeared from MTV, but only because they refused to do videos for their other songs. They had plenty more hits, even after grunge died, and their albums are still successful.

That's a comedy video someone put together for one of their songs. The song itself dates from the period of their popularity -- in fact, it's the B-side to the song you probably remember seeing on MTV.
