RIP Allen Shellenberger (Lit)

Lit for the last ten years have put out great records. Some have sold well and some have sold not so well, however this doesnt change the fact that in my opinion they were all fantastic. They put out tongue in cheek well written Rock N Roll heavily saturated in pop and drizzled in a punk feel. Lits music is very tasty. The lyrics are fun and clever while the music is driving. Lits lyrics and music have gotten me through many an ex girlfriend many!

A big part Lits driving force was their long time drummer Allen Shellenberg. Unfortunately, Allen left this world of ours after his mere forty revolutions around the sun having suffered from brain cancer today.

I am sure he will be missed by all. Hopefully hes enjoying a cold one with John Bonham and Keith Moon right now with tunes cranked and a smile on his face looking down on us. Hes in a better place.

RIP Allen Shellenberger

  1. Wow Kent bro great write up. I had come on here to post the same news, but I'm glad you beat me to it.

    Attention Death: TAKE THE REST OF 2009 OFF. Jeebus.

    I think I'd maybe put Lit in my top 20 fave bands of all time... I don't think there's one song I don't love. Pure pop-punk delciousness... they did it right the whole way. Also, they got to climb Pam Anderson's T and A... I know I know, who hasn't but still...

    RIP Allen, and thanks for giving all those great songs the beats that made them fly.
