Nate and Josh, two Colorado fuck-ups behind the everything-goes noise band Friends Forever, don't perform at clubs, they stage raucous spectacles inside their beat-up VW van. The documentary follows the jackass troubadours as they travel cross-country, get shut down by cops, improvise butt-stupid lyrics and pledge to "make the worst music that's ever made." The duo's left-field tenacity is kind of admirable, but the big problem with Friends Forever is that their desperately nonconformist antics get old real fast.

    “Hungry Like the Wolf”

    Duran Duran | 1982

    This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
