Seriously. They had me at "The Supersuckers don't do encores. We don't believe in jerking you around like that. We're going to stay on stage and finish the fucking job we started."
Since forming in Tucson, Arizona in 1988, the Supersuckers have been cranking out grungy, foul-mouthed rock 'n' roll with a heavy dose of outlaw country and old-school punk. After relocating to Seattle in 1989, they released a handful of albums on the Sub Pop label and did a brief stint with major label Interscope before releasing a string of CDs on their own Mid-Fi Recordings. Their most recent studio collection is a 12-song set of raunchy rockers titled Get it Together.
As of July 2012, the members include Eddie Spaghetti on bass guitar and lead vocals, "Metal" Marty Chandler and Dan "Thunder" Bolton on guitars, and Christopher "Chango" Von Streicher on drums.
As if you need more convincing, here's the funniest, bad-assest list of testimonials I've ever stumbled across:
If you don't like the Supersuckers, you don't like Rock-N-Roll.
-Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead
They played my birthday party. They rock!
-Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam
Every time I hear the word 'Supersucker,' I'm reminded of an older gentleman who went into the strip bar and the hooker c'm dancing up to him and said 'Superpussy!' and he said 'Soup, please.'
SupersuckersI love the Supersuckers, our whole band loves you guys!
-Robin Zander from Cheap Trick
The Supersuckers understand that great rock and great country are, at least on a spiritual level, exactly the same thing. Rock on, boys.
The Supersuckers rock ferociously whenever they feel like it and what really matters is ending this sentence with an exclamation point!
-Little Steven Van Zandt, E Street Band, Little Steven's Underground Garage
Supersuckers... Everyone knows the Supersuckers
-Elijah Wood (SXSW 2008)
The Supersuckers are hands down one of the best rock n roll bands around today!
