Time flies. Seventeen years? Crazy. GLONO is the same age as the lead singer of my favorite band. There are kids in bands today who weren’t even born when we started this. That blows my mind. I remember turning 17 the summer before my senior year of high school. John Cougar had told us to … Continue reading Hey What’s Up? Glorious Noise Is 17
A lot of people died this year.

Goodbye, Chicago. We’ll miss you like crazy.
We’re aware that we Google is warning users that GLONO is listed as suspicious. Our site was comprised and some bad files were added that could apparently cause trouble (that’s all we really know at this time).

It’s our birthday. Want a free shirt?
