    That would be Old Skull.

    Their story is wild and more than a bit tragic, but I remember wearing out my copy of "Get Outta School" on cassette.

    That's awesome. My son and I started a band when he was 4--The Motorcycle Snakes. He wrote two songs that my band opens every set with--and everyone tells us they are their favorites:

    We like motorcycles
    We like snakes
    That's why we're called the Motorcycle Snakes.
    We like we like
    We like we like
    motorcycles and snakes

    And

    We like to play loud
    We like to Play loud
    We like to play loud
    And louder and louder and louder and louder.
