Consumer Guide Reviews:

Love Songs for the Retarded [Lookout, 1993]
for 16 songs in 36 minutes, they [heart] Ramones and rhyme with "beers" ("Ursula Finally Has Tits," "Fuck the World") *

Move Back Home [Lookout, 1995] Neither

Pleasant Screams [Lookout, 2002]
paring down from "I Hate Your Fucking Guts," "I Just Called to Say Fuck You," "Journey to the Center of Your Empty Fucking Skull," "Stupid Fucking Vegan," "My Cunt's a Cunt," and "Just Say Cunt" to "See You Later Fuckface" in just two years! ("I Never Got the Girl," "Homo") **
