Saw them tonight in Zurich as as support of Social Distortion.
It is the worst band i have ever seen, can't stand this crap behaviour, the songs are crap as well.Left early , if this band is scheduled again, i will definitely
not attend the concert.
It is totally disgusting.
Can't believe that Chris should be playing in this band .

Wow. You're the first person i've known to watch Gimmes and hate them. You know they're a very laid back, silly, fun band, right? What exactly didn't you like?

Laid back ? I would say no IQ at all.
They say they are a cover band, i would say they can play crap somewhere else.
They play songs from the 60 s and 70 s in a crap manner , not songs created by them self .
I would say the right place for this "band " is a gay party.
Compared the concert of the Foo Fighters Sunday at Reading , giving a 100, for todays concert 1 point would be overrated.
Never ever will I see this band again.

I you like Bands like Foo Fighters , Pearl Jam or Rise Against, Bullet for my Valentine, Dropkick Murphys, Anti Flag, Green Day .........
you feel disgusted by this Super Star Group

And of course I Hate every kind of german music (playing this song at the small guitar was the worst song ever)

They're a silly punk cover band, it's what they do. Fair enough you're entitled to your opinion but comparing them to bands like that is silly, they're not the same.

I know they are not the same, but when you expect Rock n Roll or similar stuff
and ending up with crap versions of ancient pop songs from the 60s or older (bei der Kaserne..........) the organizers of this concert have to get their brain checked

Obviously I went to see the Foos instead of them at Leeds but still managed to get the end of their set - thought they were brilliant.

The guy I buy a lot of my vinyl from absolutely loves them too!

You expect punk rock covers because they are a punk rock cover band. That's what they do. Have you never listened to any of their albums?

It's a fun side job they all do compared to their main bands.

If you don't like the song choices, that is one thing, but to say that they play badly is just factually incorrect. They are 5 very talented musicians.

They also like to have a laugh and a joke.

As Simon says, you are entitled to not like them, but I like most of those other bands you mentioned and take every opportunity I can of watching the Gimmes because I know it is always a fantastic show. I was gutted that I couldn't watch them on Sunday because they crossed with the Foos, which is why I ensured I went to see them on the Saturday instead. My brother went to go and watch them instead of half the Foo set and loved it. He also likes many of the bands you mentioned. So clearly it doesn't follow that fans of those bands won't like the Gimmes. Maybe it is just you?

Also, what the hell is a "gay party"?

I honestly can't fathom how you can go to a Gimmes show and not have fun. Are they playing note perfect covers and pushing the original version to new levels? No, but they're going on stage to have fun playing pretty simple punk covers of various songs they like and have a good time. They lark around, sometimes mess songs up but they put on a great show overall and like I say, I don't know how you can't have fun with that.

If i'm ever feeling down my go to music is usually Gimmes. They're just super fun and make me happy.

Proper punk shouldn't be note perfect anyway. Besides which, they do play it well for the most part (especially Dave and Scott, the other 3 may lark around a bit more ). They treat the songs with respect, but have fun.

I just linked to this vid from Sat on FB and it shows everything they are about. You can see the crowd is loving it as well. As you say, it's just good fun.

I'm guessing you hadn't heard them before. I saw them for the first time a few weeks ago and they were everything I expected. They are so much fun!

Excuse me, but this band is not Punk it used to be (or should be).
Punk for me are Bands like Dropkick Murphys ; Anti Flag , Flogging Molly or Rise
Against; Pennywise to name a few.
Drunk people in white suits with Hawaii Shirts presenting cover versions of 60 s pop(or
earlier) showing crap behavior are for me no punk at all.
Punk has a message in the songs, but when the band got no IQ at all, there is no message at all.
When I want to be pissed , I don't have attend a concert.
As mentioned earlier, in my opinion the worst band in the world.
I did not say they can't play their instruments...........

Want to see the band banging their heads at the wall , thats fun to watch

Yeah, bands like Face to Face, NOFX, Lagwagon, Swingin' Utters really aren't punk, are they?

They are a punk cover band. They are all punk musicians who, for a laugh and a bit of fun, take time out from their normal bands to play punk covers of famous songs. What is so difficult to understand about that? Why does all punk have to be serious? Not all punk is exactly the same.

Also, why on earth did you go and watch them given you clearly had no interest in what they were doing and had clearly never listened to them before?

I wanted to watch social distortion as headliner of this evening, but left early.
Surviving 45-60 mins of the piece of art wasn't doable.
Better go 1 st row in the middle at reading next time, it will be worth it, to take the pain , to watch the Foos as good as it could be.

Next chance to watch social distortion will be for me on saturday , the play at a one day festival (along Flogging Molly, Angels&Airwaves and Green Day).

Out of interest is it the original songs themselves you didn't like or the Gimmes take on them?

So you were already there and bailed on Social Distortion because the Gimmies pissed you off?
