Owing to their continuous touring that they do and the manic stage shows that they present to their fans, they have come to be much famous for being at the top of the list of the most popular underground acts that are present currently in America.

Elements of rock can also be traced in several songs. Their songs are more often than not quite loud and are also full of energy. Mostly the wordings of the songs are pretty humorous as well.
They also attract a wide cult audience. That but with the passage of time much of their music has found its way into several not only places and is becoming increasingly popular amongst the majority. Their song titled "Big Red Rocket of Love" has been used for a commercial that had been made for the promotion of the Mazda Miata. Apart from that the instrumental that is commonly used by them for the purpose of opening their show titled "Big Sky," is the music that has also been used for a commercial that had been for the promotion of Levi's jeans.
Other than that a cover done by them of the popular Guadalcanal Diary song that had been titled "Watusi Rodeo" had been included in the famous Jim Carrey movie named Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.
