TFY5K is made up of four working stiffs who, despite the demands of everyday life, have managed to keep a darn good rock band going since 2003. All the band members have full-time jobs (thems all bin to college) and three are married with kids.
For the most part, the music tends to be loud, fast and uncomplicated. With the sound sitting somewhere between The Ramones and Motorhead. Lyrically, most of the tunes are not meant to be taken too seriously. And if there is some sort of actual message buried deep down in a song or two, it's delivered with the band's usual good humor.
The goal, in so much as one exists, is not to "make it" in the traditional major-label sense. They're out to write a few tunes, play a few shows, drink a few beers, drink a few more beers, and maybe earn a few dollars with which to pay for the aforementioned beers.
Would they like to quit their jobs and concentrate on the rock? Sure, who wouldn't? Should that opportunity present itself, they'll grab it with both hands and suck on it as if it were the biggest, most perfect beer ever brewed. But they'll do it without the, uh, "help" of the majors or anybody else with an RIAA membership for that matter.
If this completely half-assed approach somehow manages to lead them to fame and fortune. Great! If not, well then.... screw it. Who cares. They're still having more fun than most people their age have any right to.
