Check out this hilarious article:
Hee hee hee hee! If you don’t want to read it, it’s all about how irrelevant (and bad) ska band Less Than Jake are releasing an album that’s all about Gainesville, their hometown. Tee hee! The article is full of public officials expressing their glee and sharing their uninformed opinion that a “big spotlight” will be on Gainesville the next few weeks. LOLOLOL A big spotlight courtesy of Less Than Jake?! Guffaw!
Yes, Less Than Jake are from Gainesville and people around here act like they’re hot shit, for some reason. When they occasionally play in town, assholes are like, “Oh, I’m going to the Less Than Jake show!” Remember shitty rock group Sister Hazel? I do, unfortunately. Same deal. From Gainesville, people here still like them.
Also, that piece of shit Tom Petty is from here. Unfortunately, he is genuinely famous but he’s probably even worse than the aforementioned bands. The moral of the story is: there are shitty bands in Gainesville and they get signed.
