In this morning’s Times, Kelefa Sanneh bravely reports on Monday’s enthusiastically attended show at Irving Plaza by Tokio Hotel, the latest German hair-metal band to capture the imagination of America’s teenagers. They’ve sold 3 million albums in Europe, and Interscope is betting they’ll sell a few here (hope springs eternal in the music business, we guess).

Is there any reason to believe that these guys won’t be bigger than Miley Cyrus? Probably not!
