They say if you put a million monkeys in a room with a million typewriters for a million years, they'll write Hamlet. But if you put five monkeys in a recording studio with a couple guitars, a bass, some keyboards and drums, they'll be playing Bomis Prendin music before you can get the microphone levels adjusted. Of course, they'll lose interest after a few minutes, whereas our monkeys have stuck with it for...well, for as many years as they would have if they started in 1978. You do the math. They can't, they're monkeys.
