Why they might be annoying:

    Mark Berry went by the single name 'Bez.'
    They often ripped off melodies and lyrics from other bands.
    They gave away drugs at their concert venues.
    They were better known in the press for their hedonistic and drug-fueled lifestyle rather than the music.
    At a contract meeting with record executives, Shaun walked out to buy heroin and never returned.
    Their popularity was very short-lived.
    Bez won UK Celebrity Big Brother (2005).

Why they might not be annoying:

    They were one of the most popular and influential bands of the club and rave music scene of the 1980s.
    Their music combined influences of psychedelia, soul, funk, pop, dance music and hip-hop.
    After breaking up in 1993, they reformed briefly in 1998.
    They were an influence to bands like the Chemical Brothers, Oasis, The Verve, Richard Ashcroft and The Charlatans UK.
