I'm not sure how this wound up on the countdown, I'm claiming a technical glitch in

Pansy Division are great in theory, but in practice it's just never done it for me. I've bought the records, I've seen the live show, and all I come away with is a big old feeling of "This is why they hate us".

OK, Pile Up actually is their best CD - a collection of b-sides and covers, including a pretty straight forward rendition of Husker Du's "The Biggest Lie", which even I was able to figure out was about boys.

    I like the idea of PD more than I actually like them. I love the idea of boys singing about boys, but their songs rarely get past the Beavis-and-Butthead-type novelty of singing about gay sex. They're tons of fun, but I find it hard to sit though a whole CD.

    Though I'll admit it's fun to listen to them when I'm at the gym. Something about hearing "Cocksucker Club" really loud while in the middle of a roomful of straight boys is kind of hot. :)

    I didn't know about the Husker Du cover. Thanks for the tip.

    Yeah, it's just kind of embarrassing for everyone involved.

    Enjoy the cover!

    I would go see the boys every time they'd plow thru Cleveland at the Grog Shop - by the time they ditched the novelty aspects of everything and began writing real songs it was too late.

    Very much a '90s memory.
