Playing Around: Pacifier

JUD JUD. JUD JUD. So they've got the JUD JUD thing goin' for 'em. Then they've got the fact that they don't have a "The" in front of "Pacifier." So they've got that goin' for 'em. Make no bones about it, these guys are straight-ahead rock 'n' roll. Also, lead singer and guitarist John Toogood (do you think that's his real name?) jumps really high in the air and kinda looks like a cross between Iggy Pop and Russell Crowe. That's pretty cool. Dude, these guys are all like Def Leppard with their harmonies and yet all like Green Day with their straight-ahead riffs and, frankly, they aren't very pretentious sounding, which is always a plus. So if you like, like, guitar-swinging rock with dudes from New Zealand who take their shirts off and wear really tight pants, this band is pretty sweet.
