Love 'em or hate 'em, you've got to admire those 3OH!3 cats. In just a few years, the act has gone from being a word-of-mouth, regional phenomenon to turning heads across the country with a breakout single, "Don't Trust Me," frenetic stage presence and an absolutely devoted and maniacal fan base. So exactly how much cachet do these hooligans have these days? Well, as you can see from the cover to your left, a lot. Not only has the dynamic duo been immortalized on two AP covers -- which is precisely two more than the rest of us, if anyone's keeping track -- but in that same April issue, the magazine has anointed them as one of the one hundred bands you need to know in 2009. Rad, right, if not a little surreal? Literally seems like just yesterday that 3OH!3 was a still buzzing act from Boulder that hadn't even broken into the Denver scene yet.
