Recommendation of the Week

Looking for a laugh? The Sweatpant Boners were a little-known comedy band featuring Ken Susi (Unearth), Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage), and Toby Dutkiewicz (Aftershock). They only released one album, 2002's Cruisin With the Masters, but it contains such timeless classics as "Save Your Verginity (Til We Get to Your Town)," "Singing Heavy Metal With a Mouth Full of Cereal" and "Pee With Your Father." Some of the tracks can be heard here. The group was fronted by the charismatic Robby Roadsteamer, who now performs similar acoustic songs, which can be heard here. There's also a whole lot of awesome stuff coming out Tuesday, so be sure to check it out.

After announcing their break up last august, Beneath the Sky are getting back together. Since when did anyone really want them back?
