My father's take on several bands I listen to

* The Gaslight Anthem: "This sounds like that band your mother likes [The Killers]."
* The Replacements: "Why don't more bands have smart lyrics like this?"
* The Horrors: "It's the return of rock and roll!"
* The Hold Steady: "This guy [singer Craig Finn] has a lot of problems with drugs and girls. They're a good band."
* Dance Club Massacre: Just stares at me with an facial expression that says "Really, Ryan? Really?"
* Genghis Tron: Same as above.
