Are the band at #66 real, or has someone, somewhere been bored at work?

Either way, it's a crap name. The song title is a tad unsavoury too.

It seems they are real: http://www.kuntandthegang.webs.com/
THEY don't want "Use My Arsehole As A C*nt" in the top 40! It isn't up to THEM, it's up to YOU!!
I think I agree with THEM.

Town Bike played with them (him) in Liverpool about ... ooh, two years ago, i think

quite a few of my pals seem to like him (and backed this 'campaign'), but after about 3 or 4 songs of his set i was starting to wish him physical harm

i appreciate the sentiment of this song, but sentiment shouldn't be a reason for us not to say it's shite. it's utterly fucking terrible

ahem. anyway, i've just remembered there used to be an electro band round these parts called Vandal In Berlin, which is a shit name

It does also prove that certain message boards/mailouts (hello, b3ta) aren't as popular as they think they are, given most of Twitter was ablaze on Monday with "look at that at 66!"

I had no idea, but then I am a proud and firm believer in that old adage; "Twitter? Shitter more like!"

[edit: I'm deleting this because I think they're an indiepop band and we should look after our own :)]

I used to think that but once you get into it, it's really good and addictive.

Seal Cub Clubbing Club always surprises me with how fantastically SHIT it is for a band name whenever I see it around. Fuckin' 'ell.

I've never heard them, butwikipedia makes me think they'd be shit.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

I'm sure I've done a gig with them. Can't remember what they were like though.

We supported them in Derby. They were alright, and improved massively when the guitar amps stopped working and the keyboard player bloke unleashed his electronica side...

i'm not googling it at work for obvious reasons but someone has informed me there is a now a band called Date Rape.

Ooooh you are such naughty boys, my bottom has prolapsed in shock.
When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called 'the People's Stick.'

If they go on tour with Pre Teens the world might collapse in irony.

That's made me listen to 30 seconds of them on last.fm. It was only 30 seconds, but I shan't be bothering them any further.

Ha, yeah, The Vaccines is a really lame name!

Um, but I actually kind of like that Wrecking Ball song a bit, despite the towering cynicism of the entire project

An acquitance of mine is scouring Sheffield for a venue that would allow him to put a New York band called Child Abuse on. He is having limited success.
