Have a Fucking Ringtone.

"A band from Germany has adopted a novel approach to getting their music heard by millions.

Super Smart have turned their backs on vinyl and CDs and instead have decided to just release their album as ringtones.

The album, Panda Babies, is published by a German company that focuses on digital music for mobile phones.

"Music has to be re-thought," said Antonio Vince Staybl, founder of the Go Fresh Mobile Music label."

yes, music has to be re-thought, but not, evidently, by a bunch of guys with panda heads.

Ringtones are the work of the devil. The panda head thing is just adding insult to injury.

that was pretty much my exact order of things: evil, panda heads the sugary evil.

one day, this band will look back and say, 'why didn't anyone take us seriously?'

i hope i'm there for it.
