Yes, they first came to fame with their bratty behaviour, but they built on that as their audience grew up and I'd say that Sabotage/Check Your Head provided a higher (and more widespread) level of fame than any inflatable cocks on stage antics ever did.
Put it this way, how many females would you see at a BB show if all they did was their early stuff? Last few times I've seen them the crowd has been very mixed, more so than any of their contemporary acts.
You might hate them for maturing and recognising the error of their previous ways, but me I respect them more for acknowledging their past mistakes. We were all young and dumb, some of us just dont like to admit it...
Did they forget to tip?
