I have 6/8 CDs of theirs. Just looked at iTunes and discovered there’s 2 I don’t have as much as the novelty could get boring after a while, they’re always HILARIOUS with each listen. It’s punk versions of very popular songs. Ever wonder what Simon & Garfunkel would sound like as a punk group, Boy George, Cline Dion or Barry Manilow? Wonder no more! Me First & The Gimme Gimmes have done it for you. Corey turned me onto them and then I realized Chris Shiflette (lead guitar for Foo Fighters) was in this group and I was all in. Their music gives me a good laugh when I listen to it. Rob, Dave, Rydell and I did a sort of punk version of this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Gl2QnHNpkA Danielle Bradnam will love this! Here’s one song from each of the 6 albums I own.
