Supersuckers

8 p.m. Friday, February 10. The Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

What the Supersuckers lack in subtlety and originality it makes up for in testosterone and comedic timing. Only its biker-wannabe following took the "Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World" marketing seriously, but the band's highly head-bang-able and equally unlikely cult hits for Sub Pop — "Creepy Jackalope Eye," "On the Couch," "Pretty Fucked Up" (as in "she used to be pretty, but now she's...you know what") — still rock harder and come off less dated than most of the band's grunge-era peers. With the years, the group has added more and more country to its leather-and-shades attitude, and absurd as it sounds, the fusion of metal and twang sticks.

What to Expect: Slacker anthems and glock-rock posturing, all cranked to eleven and as irresistible as they are stoopid.
