In the Season 3 episode of "Stoker", a few songs were heard being performed by the punk
band "Stoker". Actually, all the songs heard were written by the punk band "Suckerpunch".
These songs included "Hand Over Fist", "Dead Beat", and Wade's ballad "Falling Behind"
(once thought to be written by Sabrina Lloyd herself). What is also interesting is that the CD
is Produced, Recorded by, Engineered and Mixed by STOKER at Paramount, Hollywood
Ca. Below are scans from the "Suckerpunch" compact disk along with MP3's of the
three songs which was heard. Even though the song "Falling Behind" is nothing like what
is heard during the episode, the lyrics are all the same. Also I would like to thank Blinker
for providing me the information for the CD. Enjoy!!!
