Default Arrested Development

Couldnt' find a thread, hope I'm not being retarted again.


These guys are amazing, and their first album is by far their best. I'm currently loving "U' and "Mr. Wendal".

Misspelled their name :\

I saw them live in May I'd be glad to see them again, they're very awesome.

Arrested Development are the band who got me to start liking rap back in the day. Before that most of my exposure to rap had been to garbage like MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice and I hated that crap.

What I really like about them, is that they can get a point aross without being annoying. They're clearly a religious group, but they're not like Relient K and bands like them, by boring us to death with their beliefs instead of making good music.

Yeah, normally I find heavily religious music to be pretty annoying, but somehow AR managed to pull it off and make it sound good. I love that song "Raining Revolution" on their first album.

The only thing that annoys me about AR is that they tried to sue the creators of the show "Arrested Development" for using the same phrase they used to name their band. It annoys me because (a) the term "arrested development" is a common phrase that's been around for ages, it's not like the band invented it, (b) the show had absolutely no connection to anything about the band so it's not like the show was trying to capitalize on the band in any way, and (c) because it made a band I like look like a bunch of jackasses.
