Okay, here we go again. You guys ask questions about the band in question and I answer them.

Previous answer (I will not repeat answers):

INXS

Now THIS is a good question!
I've been waiting for someone to ask it.

It's actually hard to define their genre, but to be true to the spirit of the question without giving too much away, I will say jazz. They were other things too, for sure.

50. It is not Weezer.
And the band in question would not be classified as either rock or alternative, at least not in a record store. Their music had elements of both.
