I've watched the Smoking Popes Live at Metro DVD maybe three times (some tracks appear on the DVD but not the CD), and I think I've converted several people into Smoking Popes fans. I can't stop listening to the CD. If you're unfamiliar with punk music, this is a good place to start! The punk tent is a big one; this happens to be pop punk, which means it's easy to listen to, which is why their music has such tremendous commercial appeal.

Frankly, I'm amazed by the Smoking Popes. Their lyrics rake the heart; their beat can wake the dead. Even if they become deaf to their muse and write nothing more--which I doubt, their place is assured in the pantheon of punk rock.

God bless the Smoking Popes.
