These guys are The Residents. You have to know about them if you want any kind of geek-cred.
The story goes that they sent in a demo-tape, but never put their name on it. When the record company they sent it to returned the tape, it was addressed to "Resident". Since then, they have released over sixty albums, numerous music videos and short films, three CD-ROM projects, two video games, ten DVDs, and have undertaken seven major world tours.
You give a listen and see why they were rejected back in 1972.
That last tack is a Residents cover by Primus. Oh, you don't know who Primus is? Thanks for making me feel old.
