The Supersuckers, and their mustachioed, perma-smirked frontman Eddie Spaghetti, have been proclaiming themselves the "greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world" for years now. Whether or not the claim holds true is up for debate (and should be debated, because this is America). But just making such a bold proclamation is pretty fucking rock 'n' roll. And the band's been at it for years, a modern-day AC/DC where every song is essentially "Shoot to Thrill" done over and over. Or in the Supersuckers' case, "Creepy Jackalope Eye." Hey, even these guys released a singles collection called The Songs All Sound the Same. Supersuckers shows are a good excuse to drink, flail, and forget about the grind of life. If that's not rock 'n' roll, I don't know what is. MARK LORE
