Need some help with a rewrite[edit]

I'm working on a complete rewrite of this article because, frankly, it's pretty lacking. I've already redone all the album articles and made a new discography, but what I'd really like to work on is a better opening paragraph and an accurate-as-possible band history. That's where I need some help, since the band's official message board has gone down and I can't find any other good sources of info:

  • Does anybody out there own The Essential Kevorkian or Green World demos, the "Vans Song" 7" or the Skank for Brains split? I can't find any information on them (well, there's a track list for Skank for Brains on Amazon but I'd really like details on the original release). Basically I'd like to create entries for those releases with tracklists, band members, a cover image, etc. This would also help piece together some of the band's early history. Any info or a link in the right direction would be appreciated.
  • I can't find much info on the band's history before Destruction by Definition either. What other members were in the band before them, and did they play on the demo releases? That sort of thing would be very helpful for a band history. --IllaZilla 08:30, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
well the vans song can be found in their album "The Least Worst of The Suicide Machines 1995-2005"
Well yes, because it was on Destruction by Definition. However there was a "Vans Song" 7-inch released early in the band's career when they were still called Jack Kevorkian & the Suicide Machines. The songs from it are included on On the Eve of Destruction: 1991-1995, along with songs from several of their other pre-Destruction by Definition releases, however that compilation doesn't give any information about which songs came from what releases or when they were recorded, etc. Bottom line, I don't have any info about their pre-Destruction by Definition releases & it would be nice if someone who owns them or has info about them could contribute that info to the article to make the discography & band history better. --IllaZilla 07:54, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Music in video games[edit]

Hey this band was featured in the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. Considering the absurd popularity of that game, should it be mentioned?

Good point. I'll look into it. IllaZilla 08:45, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
