    Ouch...consider the days Ralph sings per year(150+) and you have to know they play over tracks. I mean, I hate to say, but so does VH. From the great seats I had in 04 I could see times where MA wasn't singing or was even singing the wrong verse, yet the music vocals were still on. This was even further confirmed when Sammy made a statement about how the "Other Half" won't play over backing tracks.

    I have no proof in either case, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    I dunno, I saw the Punks last night and they sang eveything. All Four of them sing background harm. It wasn't "perfect" but it sure as hell wasn't a backing track. Goddamn those guys kick ass.

    Yes they do rock, but I believe he asked if they used backing vox for MS...I think they do, not that it matters one bit to me. Its satire.

    The Punks do not use any backing tracks. I have no idea what Metal Skool does, although I'd be very surprised if they do. But you never know I guess.

    Default Metal Skool

    I searched and couldn't find any topics on Metal Skool, so forgive me if they have a thread. I'm pretty sure they've been mentioned here before. Anyway, they were on "Tom Green's House Tonight," tonight as the house band. They are fucking hilarious. Mugging for the camera etc etc. Here's the link. http://tomgreen.com/?wmv
    Go to the left hand side and pick the show. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, they have a full song at the 38 minute mark called Fat Girl. Funny as hell but these guys are seriously good musicians (Ralph obviously)
    The best part of the song, is hearing the "piped in" background vocals and keyboards, since it's been a debate here for months. Hilarious stuff. For anyone that wants to watch the show on TV, it's on Monday night in selected markets in the US and on the Comedy Network in Canada.
