"I have no illusions of trying to be the most fucking innovative band of all time," Cook says. "But what we're really shooting for is trying to connect with people, most of the people — people like us, which are people who go out and drink hard and like to fucking listen to rock and roll. That's what we wanted to do."

For the most part, the Yawpers, who have five tours under their belt so far, have found those folks in the Southeast and the Midwest. The West Coast? Not so much. The tour there this past summer was a disaster, apparently.

"The way I like to look at it," Cook sums up, "is the more likely the populace is to be overweight, the more likely we are to go over well. I just think that people who give such a fuck about how they look and whether or not their gluten intake is affecting their sleep cycles just tend to breathe a level of a kind of narcissism that I don't think we really relate to."

The Yawpers clearly have a thinking problem.
