Benji Madden's Taintstick Lose Sting Challenge But Jam With Ozzy Bandmate
"Number 120 on Billboard Top 200 baby! Boom! OK, so we're gonna just take a mulligan on the whole Sting holiday album challenge thing. Past-their-prime pop stars, Taintstick can handle, but when you add Wal-Mart Christmas-shopping impulse-buying grandmas to the has-been mix, well, that's a potent commercial cocktail. Kudos to Trans-Siberian Orchestra (#4) for handing Sting (#5) his sleigh bell and candy cane loving ass,," commented Cowf***er. "Luckily, Taintstick has disposed of the real enemy: Carly Simon (#134). Trying to see you, Carly, all the way down there, 14 big spots below us. But it's not working out for us.
