8. These guys are actually the Grateful Dead! I know, like: Whaaat? Also: Why?!
7. The late Jerry Garcia’s nicknames included “Captain Trips,” “Spud” and “The Worst Guitarist Since Bob Weir.”
6. Garcia’s Dead & Company replacement, John Mayer, is the first band member in 50 years to be found attractive by women.

1. Grateful Dead music was never “satanic.” Satan has far better taste than that.
