    Buyer Beware: Bands With Different Lead Singers Are Almost Never Up to the Original Standards

    A few Saturdays ago, Rocks Off was in the grocery store a few blocks from our house, slumming around Oak Forest wearing sandals and an old Misfits T-shirt when a group of junior-high punk rockers approached and applauded us for our good taste.
