If only these guys moved me half as much as say one of Bob Seger's mediocre tunes. I'm thinking "Like a Rock" or "Accompany Me." Makes you wonder what happened to this idea of writing a song that contains actual human emotion. Like Zuckerberg pretending to be a real human boy.

On the subject of worshipful cults, Townes Van Zandt had exactly one good song. One and a half if you count ""Pancho and Lefty." But even if you had no place to fall, Austin would be last on your list. A sad shell of its former self and currently owned by Jeffrey Bezos. You can hop from one rooftop to the next going sixty miles west until you finally breathe a sigh of relief you are no longer in this godforsaken hell-scape of overpriced WTF.
