- Steeped in the glorious tradition of such hometown notables as the Stooges and the MC5, as well as drawing inspiration from such varied acts as the Cramps, Johhny Cash and Kiss, the Ruiners have left a swath of destroyed appliances and awed fans in their wake as they serve notice on the today's rock scene that it sucks, they're mad as hell about it, and they're not going to take it anymore. With witty, guitar and keyboard-drenched paeons to such diverse topics as the Jaws of Life, the Detroit '67 riots, and everyone's favorite Freak Show Carny, Lobster Boy, the Ruiners are single-handedly bringing a heady brew of chaos, excitement and most of all FUN back to Rock and Roll at the turn of the Milleniumhttp://www.myspace.com/theruiners
