I think Fountains of Wayne are great. Everyone I know seems to disagree, leading to countless arguments in the pub about their merits.
The trouble is, most people have only ever heard "Stacey's Mom", which I freely admit is a little bit shit - albeit with a saucy video involving Rachel Hunter.
Judging their whole back catalogue on that one song is like saying Supergrass are rubbish because that "Alright" song was a bit annoying.
Basically, they've written some of the best pop songs in the last 10 years, won a shedload of awards, received a 9 and an 8 from DiS for their first and third albums (the latter being described as a "classic").
Give them a chance!
I fully expect everyone to start venting their spleens right about.........now.
