Please make really tight, punchy pop-punk songs with sharp, witty lyrics. And play your instruments really fast, but then every so often, slow things down just enough that said lyrics become the focus. And get a lead singer named Hutch, 'cause that just sounds cool. "Ok," said the Thermals. And then stand in front of an American flag for some press photos just in case you ever play in NYC four days after the President announces Bin Laden is dead. "Done."
