Wilco might possibly be the most talented band in existence.

"Wilco might possibly be the most talented band in existence." Wow, what a bold statemwnet. If I could quote the movie "Napoleon Dynamite"..."Like anyone could even know that."

BG are you serious??? Those guys are like I said before some "run of the muck", sad sacks, crap!! Dylan, MMJ and Bowie have the most talent out of anyone on this sound track.

^^why did you write the exact same thing twice, only in different words? Don't ever use the word ubber either. They obviously have some talent otherwise they wouldn't be signed, but to say "Wilco might be the most talented band in existence." is just retarded. They aren't even the most talented band on this soundtrack. They're just ridiculously cheesy.

heyhey, now let's all calm down, take a step back-

Wilco is a talented band. Like 'em, love 'em, leave 'em, I don't care. I love 'em. You don't? Fine. They have talent. They're a band that tours, jams, Tweedy writes songs that stick to your brain, they're a talented band.

That said, this soundtrack is pretty cool. Never seen the show, probably never will based on my disdain for the ol' tele, but this soundtrack is pretty kickin' for a tv show...
