Two over-rated Boston bands name-checked on Comedy Central in one hour

First, Jon Stewart, paying homage to Tom Waits's appearance (and performance) on "The Daily Show" Tuesday night, says his favorite musicians are "Tom Waits, Buffalo Tom, Beethoven, and Roxette..." Moments later, Colbert delivers the lead-in to his show by saying, "Why is an indie rock band ripping me off when they can be like every other indie rock band and rip off the Pixies"? (The band in question was the Decemberists, who have filmed themselves against a green screen and asked their fans to fill in the CGI/animation/ whatever, just as Colbert did a few months back when he jumped around in front of a green screen with a "Star Wars" light saber.)... There you go, Boston's indie-rock hegemony established once more. Eat shit, Minneapolis.
