Andrew WK: I Get Wet (Island)

Jason Gross, Worldly Remains, May 2002

THIS 20-YEAR-OLD NYC headbanger gets the nod from David Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters), gets his bloody nose record cover (coke blow? fist fight?) banned and gets people riled behind him and against him. Love him, hate him or both but this MTV staple is some of kind of force to be reckoned with, at least for the time being.
