Few bands will readily invite a dude sporting a mohawk and a wife beater to kick their ass. Then again, not many bands are as universally loved and loathed as the Faint
. Which is why the geniuses at drop kickthefaint.com
have provided an outlet for those who find the group's grinding synth-pop to be so many carefully manicured black fingernails on a chalkboard. But that hasn't stopped the Faint from shaking even those asses that would like nothing better than to kick theirs. You can't help pumping a fist to the band's spastic dance-party-in-a-smelting-plant songs, even if you're flipping off the band's pseudo-punk pretentiousness with the other hand. Now if only somebody would invent a Dropkick the Dropkick Murphys game, the circle of life would be complete.
