When their first album Room on the Third Floor was released in July 2004, I listened to every song on repeat, obsessively memorising the lyrics from the fold out album cover. My favourite song was ‘Saturday Night’ where the boys sang about inviting 20,000 people round for a house party.
The lyrics promoted underage drinking and “getting laid” behind the garden shed (sounds uncomfortable). It maybe wasn’t the best thing for a child of my age to be listening to. Despite this, I loved the silly stories told in each song, and looked forward to my future of being a teenager. In retrospect, teenage life was nothing like this.
