    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Selfish C*nt
        The Bikes, the fake band whose video premiere Nathan and Dajve attend, are clearly modeled after the short-lived, controversial electro-rockers, Selfish C*nt. The Bikes' song, "Terrorists Are Gay" is a pretty clear reference to Selfish C*nt's "Britain Is Sh*t".
