ass'les, big bathrooms, nickelback, rockstar, tassholes, tassles
Despite owning up to the fact that they might be nice and even a tad talented, Seth and Marc take great joy in tearing apart Nickelback... specifically the schlock that is the hit song Rockstar. Overly-excited lyrics about anorexia nervosa, drug use that sounds like it would kill a small elephant, and an unhealthy addiction to all things Playboy as well as a comparison to Elvis?
