I love the Alkaline Trio. Their first disc came out in 1998 . Since then, they have followed with many incredible offerings. While top 40 success has evaded (probably due to their lyrics being dark and a little vulgar), they have a large following. With their fun blend of pop punk and macabre lyrics, they are my kind of band. I am determined to turn at least one reader onto them, The artwork they employ for their tours, albums, t-shirts is so great. I am gonna feature a little of it here:
I especially love this one - a take on Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart".
