Death from Above 1979

Sure, Larry David can't classify Broadway as "fierce" with a straight face, but that lame adjective develops a braking system of italics before the cocaine-crazed metal god that is Death from Above 1979. It's simple really: One bass player and one drummer from Toronto duck under the equal sign, siege popular hard rock, plug in, and invite everyone to dance like cool idiots in redemption. So instead of placing the entire staff of the Lincoln Road American Apparel in a sack and beating them with a spiked bat, join them all in a vicariously screamed chorus of "My man wants to buy you something/He wants to take you out for dinner and dancing." That's fierce and fun.
