Ben Weasel uses the cheapest 10 gauge strings available™ because he's a skinflint.
Jughead uses the same crummy pick he's been using since 1986™ because he's peculiar.
Mike Dirnt uses whatever bass happens to be be sitting around™ because he doesn't give a crap.
Dan Panic exclusively uses Tama™ drums because he can't afford a new kit.
Kiss™ uses Gibson™ guitars and Pearl™ drums because they want the best

Reviews & Opinions

MIKE DARONCO, ALLMUSIC: If this would have been the Screeching Weasel's last album, they could have at least ended their career with a loud, middle-finger salute. (Unfortunately, they would eventually try to recapture their old flame with a different lineup some years after this.) How To Make Enemies And Irritate People was announced as their last record upon its release in 1994, with Mike Dirnt from Green Day filling in on bass/backing vocals. The music is still poppy and catchy, and Ben Weasel perpetually suffers from "bad day-itis," meaning that absolutely nothing's different from the previous releases; except that this ranks right next to My Brain Hurts as one of their better albums.
