Well look, I can't even do a drum solo...Woody can't play "Eruption". I consider us more a hardcore band than anything else, lyrically and musically I think... Lyrically, definitely. I don't think we have anything in common at all to do with heavy metal lyrics. We're influenced I guess by Black Sabbath, Black Flag and Bad Brains.
