Its about time, 8 days shy of 20 years. Thanks to all 1 million of you in the US and A and the many more #acrossthesea worldwide who bought it and loved it. Congrats Rivers @rivers_cuomo Brian @trelationship, Pat @pat_tsg @_mattsharp – and @sgs711 for rocking its jams correctly since '01, surely your live efforts played a major role in spreading this slice of gospel for the last 15 years of the 20.
