Poser Fans
From
KSLU

Rs_logo_small We all deal with posers in one way or another on a daily bases, and college is chock-full of them! Posers are those people we see walking down the street in a Ramones tshirt while only knowing "Blitzkreig Bop." There's not much you can do about it, posers will pose, but next time you see one, do like Dr. Burns does and tell a shirt-bearing "fan" to name three songs from the artist on his shirt. All this and more in this week's ROCK SCHOOL!
