I kept hearing about these guys but never really listened to them. Then I saw them at The Van's Warped Tour and was not overly impressed. Later I heard a song, I really liked the song, like a whole lot. Later I found out it was Pennywise. Then I heard a couple more tracks of theirs. Now here I am a Pennywise fan. Sometimes I'm just behind the curve.

Pennywise also implies someone who manages scrupulously the small details, potentially overlooking or just muddling up the larger issues, as in the phrase Pennywise and pound foolish. (for Americans, that's pound as in money)
