Danko Jones may seem like a straight-forward rock band, but their story is anything but. They're a band with roots in many music communities - the North American indie-rock scene, the Scandinavian garage-rock scene, the European metal scene - but belong to ne of them. Too Much Trouble is about more than just Danko Jones' history - it's an exploration of the rigid politics that govern both underground and mainstream music, and how a band can succeed without pandering to either.
