Some wise apple put a video of Brand New's "The Shower Scene" from 2001's Your Favorite Weapon, which prior to this week, has never seen the light of day...

On The Bandar-Log's press release, it boldly states: "For fans of The Strokes, Beck, The White Stripes, and Red Hot Chili Peppers." I've stated this before, but I really hate the concept of "RIYL" stickers, only because more times than not, those artists have very...
