Shaun White's New Band Sucks Just As Bad As His Stride Gum Does

Seriously.

What the fuck.

The snowboarders isn't even the frontman, but a lowly guitarist, while another cat takes up the lead singer spot. $10 bucks says that this minor problem won't be around for long, particularly when Warner Bros. signs his band.

Do you think that they were signed for their talent and abilities, or just because they're a band that features Shaun White in their line-up?

Now be swayed by the press release that convinces you how a band featuring Shaun White on guitar is what you were looking for all along:

In ten years, you'll be embarrassed about this shirt, dude
LA rock band Bad Things - that consists of front man/lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White, the professional snowboarder and skateboarder - has signed to Warner Bros. Records and will be putting out their debut album later this year. Shaun, Lena and Anthony grew up in North County San Diego, CA and have been friends for years. Jared and Davis joined this past year, and together, the band has written a collection of songs for their debut, which is being produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, The Vines). The first offering from the album is a booming track called "Caught Inside," which is now streaming on the band's SoundCloud.

Bad Things will be hitting the road next month, playing two shows in NYC - Popshop July 11th at Santos Party House and Brooklyn Bowl on July 13th - followed by a Northeast and Midwest headlining run.
