    I don't know how many people have ever heard of, let alone heard the Dead Milkmen. They weren't a spectacular band, but they were damn good, and there will never be another band like them

    That's terrible. The Dead were great!

    Sing it with me:

    "I don't wanna live on a beach! No!!"

    Goodbye, milkman. Say hi to Beelzebubba for me.

  8. I've never heard of this guy, or the band, but any suicide is horrible.

    "one eyed, left handed, albino, eskimo girl, she bit me!"

    sad news indeed.

  10. No, Cosmic Thing was the B52's... :D

    Big Lizard was the Dead Milkmen.

    It's a drag, they were cool.

    They taught me that "Doctors and Lawyers and Bankers and Priests are controlled by UFOs!"

    The Milkmen were AWESOME... :bawl:


    Let's have sex with pit bulls, maybe pollute their blood line...

    Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick! Everyone knows a burrow owl lives in a hole, in the ground! Why the hell do ya think they call it a burrow owl, anyway!?!

    I asked for Mojo Nixon, they said "he don't work here."

    "I don't have any arms!!!! AAAAAAAHHH!!!"

    This is really sad. The Milkmen were one of my favorites as a kid.

    All the punks are crying today. :(

    They were a fun band when I was a kid...Beach Party Vietnam always stuck in my head for some reason. They said he had severe tendenitous that stopped him from playing and he never found anything else in his life to fill that void. It goes to show how much this means to some people out there.....RIP :bassist:

    :( Very sad.
    IMO - The Dead Milkmen were one of the best acts in alternative music, back when there was alternative music. Back in high school my car was known as The Bitchin Camero by most of my friends (even though it wasn't a Camero :rolleyes: ) ...and I think Punk Rock Girl should be required listening for every kid caught with a Blink 182 album (give them a fighting chance at knowing what punk is...)
    Great band. ...and a bassist - one of our own. Sad. R.I.P.
  19. That sux, I grew up listening to those guys. Their music was so fun, truly a one of a kind.
