Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory. Hell, everybody loves a bad conspiracy theory, as well. Simply because the more over the top, the harder the punchline. It’s all good fun.

Or the girl-fronted band who were purportedly once acolytes of Charles Manson. Know the one about the rock star who isn’t really fond of girls, but always seems to have a few by his side? (That was a big deal back then, friends.) We’re not sending links to those. We’re not paying for a law firm’s Netflix fees for the next 20 years.

We’re down with every crazy rock conspiracy you’ve got. Let’s hear them below. You’re stuck inside and you may have had too much to think. And we are down to have your voice be heard. Oh, and shout to Rivers Cuomo for writing one of our favorite songs, “Radio-Friendly Unit Shifter.”
