Interesting (and refreshing) that they're willing to admit that "The Rock Show" and "First Date" were written to be as cheesy, catchy, etc. as they are. That it was a deliberate, calculated writing in an effort to produce a single.
That's like a well known thing, I think. Well, not necessarily well known, but easily findable on the internet. I remember reading that during their hiatus. Cool to be rebrought up though
