    I came across this VH writeup. Apparently it is some kind of fictional b.s.

    Check it out if you're bored.

    That was... yeah.

    I love his comment about Jump though - "It was a giant hit in another universe, I guarantee you."

    That was a fun read from an obvious Minnesotan.

    It seams to be a parody of every right up I've seen on The Replacements. Argueably the greatest rock band of the last 20 years.

    Why would anyone write a history of Van Halen, embellishing the truth?

    How strange. Some of it was true, and the rest of it was exactly the opposite. (Great example of some of those far-down-the-list results when you type in "van halen" and hit Search.) [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    This is a brilliant piece of writing. I love how he had Elvis Costello turning the famous DLR quote upside down, and the Replacements mentions are funny. The guy obviously knows his music well, and offers up a strange parallel universe where punk and metal change places. Great read, and he takes some nice satirical jabs at music critics.
