how many of you know where the intro for the title track came from? it isnt supertones' original material.....they ripped it off from Creeping Death by Metallica. i dont mind people doing covers but when you just rip out the part of a song that you want and claim it as your own, that's pretty low. that intr ruined the supertones for me. they will not get any money or support from me. sorry guys. you had a lot of potential.

um..ok... just so you know, they never "claimed it as their own". matt, slim and ethan have talked openly about it before and also pointed out to nay sayers that they used riffs from several other metallica songs on other albums to boot! it isn't a big deal. also, just so you know, it is ENTIRELY legal to use up to a certain amount of measures or time from another artist in your songs. matt and slim were just big into metallica in those days. no biggie. just so you know.

i fully realized that it is legal to use bits of songs...i also fully realized that they ripped off other metallica riffs. i did not know that they had addressed this and said publicly that they used metallica riffs. i apologixe for my ignorance and lack of research. please do not think i am trying to criticize the supertones...they are an incredibly talented band, just not my preferred style. i just find it irksome that they took only a part of a song and used that, rather than an entire song. it just seems low. (by the way, the song creeping death by metallica is about the first passover and the curses on egypt in the boook of Exodus-a Biblical passage put tosong by a secular band) if they wish to cover an entire song ny metallica or any other band, that is their call. just dont take bits and pieces as you please. (i am not trying to slam metallica or secular music either; i am an avid metallica listener)

gotcha. i see what youa re saying, you would rather they jsut cover rather than use peices. ok. but what if they had just played a few measures of Scooby Doo or Flinstones or another widely known tune? would that be bothersome? no, becaue it is all in good fun.

This cd earned a 50000000000000000000000000 on a scale of 1 to 10. this is one of the greatest cds along with Bleach and MxPx. you should buy every cd from The Supertones, Bleach, and MxPx.

how can mystery person give it a one?

i gave it a nine,
i would of gave it a ten, but chase the sun is a bit better
insightful lyrics throughout, and i got my friend hooked, who got me hooked.
the intro to "little man" was on a tv show.

my fav songs are tonight and little man

funny how preferences change, i used to hate little man
