The two most common brands over here are Night Train and Thunderbird. To be perfectly honest, Buckfast sounds more slightly appealing than either ... not that makes any sense to mix an upper (caffine) with a downer (alcohol).
I like the bridge best. There's a live version on their MP3-download-only live album, "Almanac: Live 2004". It's one of my favorite albums of all time, but I don't know if it's available anymore. It's from the era of "The Spine" and "No!" so you get a lot of songs from those albums, but the music is SO MUCH FUN! I listened to it again yesterday, for the first time in ages. It made me feel so good, even though the non-"No!" lyrics are often kind of morbid and/or depressing. ("No!" is a children's album. TMBG writes their children's music the same way they write their adult music, just with more child-friendly lyrics, so nobody complains when they play children's music at adult concerts.)
I'm drinking water as usual but I'm considering going to the convenience store and getting some root beer. I think I will.
