It took me a while to get into this band, but a few listens to hello rockview and i was hooked. What are your opinions on the band?

I first heard LTJ when "All My Best Friends Are Metal Heads" was in the Digimon movie.

...I've loved them ever since.

They came to my town the other month. I read a few reviews in the paper about them and I was thinking 'This band sounds like a really wicked band' but then my friend sent me one of there songs and it was kind of like '...oh.'
From what everyone has said here though, I think I'll have to re-listen to it.

I have been a fan of LTJ for a while now and there music just keeps getting better and better,

I think its great the way that they are so different from other bands (becuase of trumpet) and so good, unlike bands like dropkick murphys who are different but cant stand.

sorry just remembered,
i have tons of live footage if anyone would care for some.
the only full songs i think i have though are plastic cup politics, the science of selling yourself short, and look what happened, though that last one is in two parts. lol

I'm going to see them in April. Can't wait, it should be class. They're one of 3 decent bands who actually come to my city occasionally. Like, more than once. The other two being Green Day and Motorhead.
