File under OMFG, muhahahah!: Thanks to You (no, not you, silly -- that's the band's name) is currently plastered on the front page of PureVolume.com, an impressive nod for a local band that most of you probably haven't even heard of yet. Getting that kind of national exposure is certainly worth bragging about. It would be the highlight of most weeks, right? And it would've been had one of the members not one-upped that feat by going and appearing on Leno. Well, actually, it's a stretch to say that he appeared on the show. What do we mean? We'd tell me more, but really, this is the kind of thing you just need to see for yourself. Peep the clip after the jump. -- Dave Herrera
