Someone sent this in and it actually doesn’t suck. It kinda sounds like thrashy mosh-bro rock a la Paint it Black and Kill Your Idols and all those bands. Also, the song title is an ‘Idiocracy’ reference, so bonus points for that. True story: That movie ended up happening to America in real life. It is happening right now.
“This song features one of the most well-known lyrics in punk rock history. If you ever find yourself at a punk show and say, ‘I ain’t no goddamn son of a bitch,’ a hundred out of a hundred people there will know to respond with, ‘You better think about it, baby!’ None of them will know exactly what it means, however, but man, is it fun to sing.”
They all sound pretty gnarly, but we gotta go with Kevin from Hope Con. That dude could solve all the world’s problems just by standing there and yelling at them. Pretty sure we could send him to scream at the hole in the ozone layer until it closed up out of fear and we wouldn’t have to recycle anymore. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to go listen to some Beyonce or something because if we hear that fucking guitar riff intro one more time, we’ll stab ourselves in the ears with some broken glass which we’re not even gonna bother recycling since Kevin’s got that whole thing under control.
ALL/Descendents/Flag drummer, Bill Stevenson, did an interview to promote Punk Rock Bowling. (Ah bowling, the only sport that let’s you be a world class athlete while simultaneously drinking a beer.) He was asked how Flag came about and why Henry Rollins isn’t part of it.
If you also geek out about No Idea Records bands, you should get pretty amped about the fact that Small Brown Bike are putting out a collection of demos, rarities, and unreleased shit next week. We’ve heard it and we will say that you get your money’s worth.
Right after their cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Jail Break” is the song “Lantern,” which they’ve just released. Click Read More to listen…
Anyone going to Maryland Death Fest this weekend? We’re not, but if you are, be sure to have your ears blown out by Pelican and Converge and Pig Destroyer and all those other bands. Also, in just looking at the lineup, there seems to be a band playing called Weekend Nachos. They sound pretty awesome but that name is saddening. Nachos aren’t just a weekend food, bros! You can and should have them every day of the week. Unless you’re trying to say, “These are our weekend nachos, which are different from our Monday through Friday nachos because we are nachoing this bitch up 24/7.” Then we can get behind that.
This band sent us their EP and all they said with it was “We don’t sound like Falling In Reverse.” That was the single best press release we’ver ever gotten. But it’s actually pretty good. Sorta like if Dillinger Escape Plan cut out all that technical math rock stuff they do. It also starts with the best Mr. Show quote of all time.
That new Daft Punk album is out today and it GODDAMN FUCKING STINKS. Which wouldn’t be worth mentioning except that it has been the most hyped album since Jesus Christ put out his shitty synthpop record. It was on the cover of Rolling Stone, NME, and Good Housekeeping (probably). It sounds like a bunch of little kids dicking around with a Casio keyboard. Too much time designing helmets, not enough time writing music that people actually wanna listen to.
So, we are taking the initiative to start hyping an album coming out this year that at least stands a chance of being good. Even if it’s just Brendan farting into a tuba (which it might be!), the new Lawrence Arms will still straight up crush this Daft Punk horseshit. LET’S ALL START HYPING IT OUT OF OUR ASSES UNTIL WE SOUND LIKE RABID MORONS WITH NO DISCERNABLE TASTE IN MUSIC.
Here’s some classing Larry Arms to tickle your musical erogenous zones.
The bassist of this band sent us a very menacing email, basically threatening us to post this. He included a picture of himself holding a gun to a puppy’s head with a sign that said, “You, if you don’t post my music.”
Since we don’t want the puppy harmed, you should check them out. They’ve got a sort of punk-ska sound to em. Not this song though. This song is slower and it’s about getting old. If you haven’t noticed, that’s sort of the running theme of this blog. That, and being an asshole and being late on your bills.
