In an interview with Electricbasement.com, FIREBALL MINISTRY guitarist EMILY J BURTON responds to the band's "stoner rock" tag, "To me, 'stoner rock' proper implies a certain amount of 'jamming' which usually turns out to be a bad thing. I think what's awesome about stoner rock is the emphasis on great tone, but I also think a lot of stoner rock bands forget to write songs. A 10-minute song should not have only one riff. I do think it's pretty lame that all the stoner rock bands get called ''retro'in a negative sense like it's 'your dad's music'but bands like Jet or Kings of Leon are fucking hailed as the New Era of Rock. Cream did it 800 times better 35 years ago."
