If you’re not familiar with Bad Things, don’t feel bad. Most of the world isn’t either (they’re fairly new). So, if you can’t get enough Shaun White, here are 10 things to know about his pet project from when he’s not shredding the slopes or skatepark.

2. The band released its self-titled debut album in January 2014.
3. They don’t like Christmas.
4. They will play Firefly Festival.
6. Their first single was titled “Anybody,” and it’s not half bad.
7. The group filled in for hip hop group Death Grips at 2013 Lollapalooza.
8. They already have a boring music video under their belts.
9. The band enjoys ranch dressing more than any person should.
10. They want to make love to the world.
