    I just saw the funniest thing. I was watching the simpsons, and it was the new haloween special. They had Blink 182 playin on it, and Mark was playing a stingray. They even went into detail with it. When it showed the head, the tuners were 3/1, like the stingray. Also, Tom was playing a Les Paul. Just thought this was kind of interesting.

    Actually, that wasn't the Halloween special. That was the one after it where Bart gets emancipated and lives downstairs from Tony Hawk. But yeah, I noticed that too :)

    Oops, my bad on the episode. The Simpsons seem to have Bands on the show quite often, that's something i like about it. (Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and Phish to name a few)
  4. The Mr. Burns' birthday (Bobo) episode was funny, when they had the ramones do "happy birthday". heheh

    *crowd are horrified*
    Marky: "Hey! I think they liked us! :D"
  5. Yeah, and let's not forget Nsync!

    thats becuase before they got sponsered by fender mark was ALWAYS playing a stingray and tom played a les paul alot. All of marks old stingrays were wierd colors like his fenders, baby blue, pink and such. Id love to have a baby blue stingray with matching headstock....droool.
