YMMV: The Shaggs

  • I Liked It Better When It Sucked: Later recordings, such as those on the compilation Shaggs Own Thing, showed them to be fairly competent musicians, but they were never as interesting as on Philosophy of the World.
  • Tear Jerker: Helena killed herself in 2006, putting a stop to any chance of the band's reunion (which seemed quite high).
  • So Bad, It's Good: Despite their obvious lack of training, talent, or a clue, the Wiggins sisters have attained quite a following.
  • Vindicated by History: Philosophy Of The World was ignored when it was released (only a few hundred copies of the original pressing being available certainly didn't help), but was later recognized as a classic of Outsider Music.
