We Don't Know Anymore

We've been called prog rock, glam rock, arena rock and other things for better or worse. Now, we are southern rock, according to a website dedicated to cover songs.

Yes, we covered Katy Perry. And yes, we did it in the style of Van Halen. We're not apologizing. Maybe to Van Halen, but that's it. And we'll do that only when Michael Anthony is invited back.

and a palate cleanser:

and The Residents covering Hank Williams (If you haven't heard Stars and Hank Forever, then I recommend that you do)

.357 Lover Fan Fiction: When Someone in the Band Rented A Civil Action

Someone in the band rented A Civil Action on the netflix. Said someone loves to watch Travolta and Duval, no matter what the content. He almost rented Wild Hogs once, but was sheepish about the possibility of having to provide any explanation. "A Civil Action is quite good", he thought, soon after he started it. However, when he got towards the end the disc skipped to the end credits. Instead of alleviating his frustration by running to the video store, he found that it was also streaming on the netflix. He watched the ending and enjoyed the closure.

.357 Lover Fan Fiction - Ron and Raincoat

Ron grows tomatoes on his desk by using an electromagnetic-spectrum lamp. He reads the newspaper and some books with the lamp as well, allowing him to feel as if he is in the sunshine while sitting in the comfort of his own home.
He has a dog named Raincoat who loves tomatoes.
Last week, in order to discourage Raincoat from eating tomatoes, he placed a 1/3-scale cutout of Dr. Famularo, the veterinarian who neutered Raincoat, next to the plants.
Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't.
At one end of his electromagnetic-spectrum lamp is a handle. Turning the handle revolves the lamp which causes the spectrum to loop itself, rewinding time within a one-meter radius of the lamp. Whenever Raincoat would eat a tomato - by knocking over the veterinarian effigy - Ron would then turn the lamp very fast to get the electromagnetic spectrum to loop itself, reversing time just enough to stop his dog's bad behavior.
