They're a stupid pop band. They suck. Their only good song was Sugar We're Goin' Down Swingin'.
I mean really, "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark?" The fuck is this? Glee?

I didn't know who they were so I checked a few on YT. I heard a lot of sounds that have been copied from jingles or other songs mixed into their stuff, but a young person who has not heard them before may think they are original. It could have been coincidence, but they're not getting an "A" in the imagination/creativity grade.
The vocals sound pretty digitized out and heavily auto-tuned (Compare that with the pipes of, say, Doris Day, who didn't have access to such technology). You can *hear* the difference.
Do they suck? That's your question.
Welllll. Kind of. But I've heard worse, so they haven't made it into the truly sucking hall of fame or anything horrid.
On the flipside the videos were slightly more interesting. That is one thing I'll definitely nail the singers of the past on. Most of their videos (delivered via MTV of ye olde days) were total trash. But its not like we know if they designed them and edited them. For all we know it could have been their publicist.
