I’ve been a huge Hall and Oates fan forever. What great songs they gave us to enjoy forever. I llove what “Daryl’s House” is doing. I just came upon this site and this thing rocks. I watched Cheap Trick and it was great to see them again. I’ll watch every episode Daryl puts out.

I have always thought Robin Zander's voice is the best Rock-n-Roll voice out there. I still do! Y'all are great friends. Got your own language & history. Thanks for inviting us in to witness the crazy that is y'all!

Cheap Trick
Cheap Trick is part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with their unique union of massive melodies and razorblade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous wit and maximum rock n roll. Frontlined since 1974 by Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), and Tom Petersson (bass guitar), the Rockford, IL-born band is set to impact still another era with the spectacular new BANG ZOOM CRAZY...HELLO, their 17th studio collection and first in more than five years. Co-produced by Cheap Trick and GRAMMY Award winner Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Fastball), songs like Heart On The Line and the turbulent first single, When I Wake Up Tomorrow, are deeply connected to the bands own irrepressible history just as they accelerate their trademark sound and vision into the now. The glorious Long Time No See Ya marks another in a long line of salutations spanning ELO Kiddies and Hello There to Goodnight and Say Goodbye, while the piledriving Do You Believe Me showcases dueling solos from Nielsen and six-string icon Wayne Kramer a milestone meeting of the long established Midwestern mutual appreciation society between Cheap Trick and the mighty MC5. BANG ZOOM CRAZY...HELLO prove Cheap Trick to be as energetic and idiosyncratically irresistible as ever before, a callback to their classic canon yet somehow as inventive and exciting as a bunch of crazy kids just coming out of the garage.

We wanted to make something that was new and fresh but also going back to our 70s sound and feel, Zander says, this Midwestern rock band thats got a hard edge but still plays pop music.

Its loud and its noisy, Nielsen says, which is exactly what we are. It sounds like theres a lot going on but really its just a three piece band with a great singer.

Cheap Trick are of course a indisputable institution, beloved for their instantly identifiable, hugely influential, powerhouse pop rock n roll. The constant core of the band remains one of a kind three guys, four chords, and tunes that will last in perpetuity, from Hes A Whore, California Man and Dream Police to Surrender, I Want You To Want Me and the worldwide #1 hit single, The Flame.

The songs are why everybody knows Cheap Trick, Nielsen says. We have some good songs. I Want You To Want Me has been around for 40 years but people still love it. And even if youre sick of it, its over in three minutes! The songs are still relevant, they still have the right words and the right emotion to move 99% of all humans.
