"Our fans are the best in the world - they don't need to be told that we're cool to be able to have a great time. When we started this band we had nothing - the music industry just didn't want to know, and because of our fans, the industry NOW recognises that we have the potential to succeed. We are nothing without you, sweet people of rock. Let's take over the fucking world together!"
