You get nuthin’ done
I said you could be mine

Congratulations, your entire article is almost COMPLETELY inaccurate…SMH, where do you get your information from? Only one single in the top 100? Seriously? I don’t know the exact numbers, but I know for a fact they had over 10. Also they didn’t take a 15-year break after 87. They release another Album (Lies) 2 years later AND the use your illusion set 2 years after that.. and I’m also leaving out the Spaghetti Incident album, only because it’s mostly made up of punk rock covers. But, just so you know, you have to also enter a studio in order to record covering other people’s material. Outside of the completely inaccurate information in which your article is filled, you did an outstanding job! Moron.
