"At least we aren't like The Cult." - Paul Westerberg

I don't think there's ever been a band that's straddled the line between cool and cheesy as much as these guys. I'm still not sure if I like them.

Paul Westerberg has always been a hacky douche who always fails to be funny with his "ironic" sens of "humor".

i was there at the birth of punk in 1977 and have followed and listened to MANY bands since. i almost always can find something to appreciate about a band or enjoy at least one of their songs.

not so the replacements (the 'mats - wtf??).

absolutely no redeeming value.

meet me on the bus? i don't think so. i'll just walk.

I like The Cult, but to call them "post Punk" is not accurate. They never were anything close to punk, not even on their first album. If anything, they were closer to 70s commercial hard rock like AC/DC.

I love The Cults! That song 'Go Outside' gets me every time....

The "Electric Tour" where they couldn't afford to play Born to be Wild

@10:30 agreed. their old stuff is great, dreamtime, love, etc. But they did on the of biggest sellout jobs of all-time with Sonic Temple in '89. Arena rock cheese. Their last few efforts were surprisingly good but Sonic Temple (and '91s ghastly Ceremomy) did irreparable damage IMO.

@11:30 not true. their contemporaries in 84, 85 were all post punk - Killing Joke, Echo and the Bunnymen, Bauhaus, etc, etc and The Cult were in that group without a doubt. Relisten to Death Cult, Dreamtime, Love. But they tore all that down a few years later with Electric. The Cult emerged from Southern Death Cult and THeatre of Hate, both big post-punk bands at the time. Look it up...

They have had a bizarre career...
