Not pedantic at all. I’m well aware of the relationship between later B-Series and Rangers, which is neat for Ranger fans but maybe less so for B2k fans like me.

“...No, no, no. Not 36K per person. 36 total.”

And there’s so much more to feature! Soda Stereo. Caifanes. Enanitos Verdes. Café Tacuba. There’s even an acoustic over of “La Caña” by Zack De La Rocha that will make you cry! Read more
