Sebzzz – Self Esteem (Offspring Cover)

This was thrown at me through a twitter user and I couldn’t not post a review. I’m a huge fan of covers in general and I have been listening to The Offspring since their first single dropped. read more

Section C – Battle Cry

Some thing about the intro to this song is so damn CCR there is no way I could not love it! Then the lyrics kick in and wow it’s such a different vibe all the sudden. So the best way I can think to describe it is if you were able to take a punk song and slow it way, way down you would have “Battle Cry”. If there is ever a resurgance of John Hughes style movies this song has to be the “The” song from one. The vocals certainly have that whole emo vibe going for them. Kinda high but with a lackadaisical tone to them. I know what your thinking right now, how very “Cure” of them and yes the song did evoke thoughts of The Cure from back in the day. So there ya go, you have to give it some kudos for taking me back to high school. It’s a handful of new songs that can bring about the same level of nostalgia for day’s gone by.


Maybe I would listen to more of their stuff but, I never was very emo. But I do appreciate a good song so I would be willing to check out more of their stuff but I make no promises about an entrance on any of my playlists. I was really excited in the beginning with it’s CCR feel but as it gave way to a more emo sound I was a bit sad.  Now that I think about I might download the song for that random playlist I was talking about it my review of Judy Rae Jae.

Red Light Runner – Better Left Unsaid

I like the upbeat tempo they are working with. It’s a very uplifting beat. I’ve come to think of this style as an emo, punk pop. Lyrically it’s kinda punky with the not so happy lyrics backed by a poppy musical style. I’m rather fascinated by the bands out there doing this type of music. These guys know the genre they are working in and doing it really well. Their tight musical composition is really well done.  I thought there were moments where the vocalist sounded a bit nervous, but there were equal moments where his style was amazing.


Would I Listen to More of Their Stuff: I thought there was enough great in this song that I’m down to listen to more. While I didn’t fall head over heels for this track right off the bat, I have a sneaking suspicion that this song was an off one for me. So with that in mind I intend to listen to more of their music. I would suggest any one who is into bands like Fall Out Boy check them out.


Who They Are: Old man emo pop punk. Reliving our youth.
