This seems lacking...

I like cake, but not the band.

I had their version of 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' play at my wedding with the full approval of my wife.

Take that as you will.

I like Short Skirt/Long Jacket, but that's all I really know from them.

I like 'em a lot. They're great live.

If there was a option for okay, then that's what i will say. yay

Cake is great. Primus sucks. Weird indie rock is great.

They're OK. I've only heard a few of their songs though. Some of them have an interesting sound, but the main vocalist is a bit lacking.

Love Cake. I need to check out their newest album though. I heard it still sounds like Cake, so yay for them!

I love their cover of "I Will Survive"

Never There and Going the Distance are pretty great.

"Frank Sinatra" has been my go to song since 10th grade and I'm a senior in college.

What does Primus have to do with it? I like both

#13 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7098 posts) -

I really enjoy them. Satan Is My Motor is one of my favorite songs.

Only Cake song I like is their cover of Frank Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night" for the Stubb's the Zombies video game.

Cake shits on their hometown and are a bunch of whiny bitches. War Pigs was the worst cover ever, however, I do like their Fashion Nugget CD.

Also, option C is awesome.

If you don't get it, you aren't a true fan of Primus. =P

#16 Posted by gaminghooligan (1524 posts) -

I really wanted to pick both a and c here since I love both

#17 Posted by Grimmrobe (197 posts) -

Every album sounds exactly the same.

Like AC/DC.

Seeing them live next month, should be awesome.

Eff yeah, Frank Sinatra.

One the greatest bands of all time. They have their own unique and instantly recognizable style.

I've seen some incredible musicians live: King Crimson, Chick Corea, Bela Fleck, Allman Brothers, but Cake was one of the best. Big, big energy, flawless performances, great improvisations, and McCrea is a true showman, really knows how to work the crowd and get them involved in the concert. One of the best times of my life.

I've never liked them.

#30 Posted by Wesker411 (73 posts) -

Originality and a strong groove, what's not to like?

#31 Posted by mlarrabee (3091 posts) -

@Jams: Flea wishes he could play like Claypool, and I'll fight anyone who says Primus doesn't suck.

#32 Posted by Jrinswand (1713 posts) -

If by "Primus sucks" you mean "Primus is fucking awesome" then I'm going to have to go with C.

#33 Posted by ajamafalous (12222 posts) -

They're alright. Where's the poll option for that?

#34 Edited by Everyones_A_Critic (6312 posts) -

I only know their most popular tracks but the horns on "Never There" are fucking great. The singer has a really unique style too.

EDIT: He was probably really Lou Reed influenced but Lou Reed is nothing more than a pretentious cunt to me so fuck that shitdick and his horseshit self-centered art rock. NO I'M NOT BITTER ABOUT LULU SHUT UP!

#35 Posted by pyromagnestir (4344 posts) -

Fashion Nugget was a good album and Short Skirt/Long Jacket was the intro music for Chuck, which gets bonus points from me, as well as a good song in it's own right. That about sums up my feelings about Cake.

No Portal jokes as of yet? Anyone? To played out? ... Well fuck you guys I still like 'em.

You don't even play piano, I'm the one who plays piano.
