    • 10/10 - One of your very favorite artists of all time.
    • 9/10 - Killer fucking band. Or artist.
    • 8/10 - Great sound, great songs, great albums.
    • 7/10 - Very good, but not quite great.
    • 6/10 - Pretty good. More than a few songs you like. You'd entertain the thought of seeing them live if they were in the area. Or still alive.
    • 5/10 - They're okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to listen to.
    • 4/10 - Meh. There may be a song or two, or an album that you dig, but you'd rather listen to other stuff.
    • 3/10 - Not very good. You will more likely than not turn the station if they come on the radio.
    • 2/10 - Pretty crappy.
    • 1/10 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0/10 - In the running for worst artist/musician of all time. You would rather take a cheese grater to your face than listen to this.

They have some good songs.  It's totally played out, but "Float On" was like the official theme song of the summer I graduated high school, so it will forever have a place in my heart.  Most of the "Good News For People Who Like Bad News" album is pretty awesome.  I'd go see them if I was able to get a few friends together to do so.  I'm not going to push for a statue of them anywhere or anything though.  6 out of 10.

Also let's appreciate the fact that the highest score for the Portland hipsters comes by way of a shotgun-toting Florida Keys redneck 😅 👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨

The only other thing I remember about Modest Mouse is that I heard about them around the same time I heard about Matisyahu.  When I heard the name Matisyahu on the radio, in my head I was hearing the name "Modest Yahoo" and I thought it was odd that two groups would come out around the same time with Modest in their name. 🤔
