When you put "shit" or "fuck" right in your band's name, you're officially going after a certain demographic — and nobody else. New Orleans sludgepushers Facedowninshit are not looking to get on TRL, or even Headbanger's Ball for that matter: They're after the folks who wish Eyehategod toured more.

(They get extra points for being from Long Island and still sounding like they were fished out of the waterlogged, post-Katrina wreckage.)
