"Nobody does it like the Didjits. Nobody can. And I don't care if Offspring attempted to cover "Killboy Powerhead" - the original is untouchable. Still, if you like that song, check out the rest of this lyrically tongue-in-cheek, slice-and-dice guitar assault and trust me - it'll make you wanna buy another release by this awesome Chicago trio. These guys should have been more far famous. Trust me - I'm authoring their bio."

"The didjits have created the first truly chaotic rock n' roll album of the decade! The album starts it's 100 mph velocity on "Killboy Powerhead", a song that was covered by the Offspring on their "Smash" album. By the time the album works it's way up to "Sweet Sweet Satan", two things are evident: this album is not gonna let up, and singer/guitarist Rick Sims listens to that red dude on his shoulder way, way, too much. Lyrics such as "excuse me, captain ahab, how did you get me so stoned?", typify Rick's penchant for all things evil. The album ends with a bass guitar laden cover of Hendrix's "Foxey Lady". 'Nuff said."

"you don't have a Didjits record?[Geez], are you lame. The mid 80's were an interesting time wherein the major labels had their heads straight up their butts as to where rock had gone. There truly was an underground, once upon a time, and the Didjits, as far as I am concerned, were a very important part of it. They are loud, fast, horny, wasted, and they do it with style. What more do you need from a rock and roll band? Let Rick and the gang grab you by the family jewels and drag you behind the Hornet Pinata.
Oh, one more thing. The Offspring, though a squib of a band compared to the Didjits, were smart enough to attempt a cover of "Killboy Powerhead". It [was bad], so you should hear it here the way it was intended."
