NOMI - Does It Offend You, Yeah?

New on my ipod is Does It Offend You, Yeah. They're a British electro-rock group that have a Daft Punk sound with a little more edge. I'm sure others think they sound like a group of 4-year-olds playing with pots and pans. From their latest album I really dig Battle Royale and We Are Rockstars.

According to Wikipedia, when the band members formed the group they decided to name themselves after the first thing they heard on the television. On the tube at the time was an episode of The Office with none other than the great Ricky Gervais on screen. At that very moment he said, "Does it offend you, yeah? My drinking?" Awesome.

I'm pretty sure none of you will like this group. But that's ok because you guys might like the Howard Stern remix instead. A few months ago Howard was making fun of JD Harmeyer (a peon on the show) and his new theme song (Battle Royale). Howard decides to make his own version of the song with Artie Lange doing the background vocals, and Fred doing the sound effects. Very funny stuff. The remix is VERY NSFW for language.
