OMG, it’s like some old school punk. And I mean old school, when the songs were about seeing your mommy dead and shit. I love the style of this song. It reminds me of everything I loved about college radio back in the 80’s and 90’s when you were listening to The Misfits and ST all day. The vocals are beautifully sinister. Love the edgy quality to the voice! The music has that devil may care chaotic feel to it that only really punk rock has. I even get a touch of DK listening to the song. I’m loving the guitar with its loose playing style but it’s done with some tight control. I mean it’s loose but not sloppy in the least.
Will I listen to more? Oh fuck yeah I will! I love old school punk, but it’s hard to find these days. At least hard to find it done right. The Unsatisfied has managed to satisfy me with their through to the roots punk style. I wanna put this on a list with everything. Kinda like you wanna put really good caramel on everything, even your turkey sandwich. It doesn’t matter if it goes together. It’s still gonna be awesome
Who They Are:
The Unsatisfied- raw, high energy rock & roll meets dangerous punk rock with precision. A complete package; a genuine American punk act with so much power and spectacle on stage it’s like being hit by a rock and roll lightning bolt.
Formed in 1986 by frontman Eric Scealf, this true blood and glitter operation has toured for many years across the southeast and beyond, sharing the stage with such luminaries as The Misfits, Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), Dave Brockie Experience (GWAR), The Murder Junkies, Superdrag, Asphalt Blaster, Georgia Satellites, and Nashville Pussy. They’ve also toured multiple times with HBO’s Real Sex “most dangerous rock band”, The Impotent Sea Snakes.
Playing everywhere from the hallowed stage of CBGB’s in New York, to performing for free at southern skate-parks for underage fans, The Unsatisfied always serves up healthy portions of faith and fire for punk rock aficionados.
“Songs the Belt Taught Us” is the latest full length release from The Unsatisfied. It was recorded at Revolution Sound with Mike Pack engineering and helping the band produce. The album was completed at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA with mixing by David Barbe (Bob Mould, DriveByTruckers) and mastering by Drew Vandenberg (WidespreadPanic, DriveByTruckers). “Songs the Belt Taught Us” was released April 27th 2011. It has since been lauded by reviewers as one of the “best rock albums of the year…”. “Songs the Belt Taught Us” is featured on Pandora iHeartRadio and Spotify.

The Unsatisfied is not your average rock band. They may be hard, but they’re more rhythmic than James Brown and embody the sensuality of Prince. It’s punk rock infused with jazz beats and sexual angst, you owe it to yourself to see The Unsatisfied live. Prepare yourself for the Southern music scene’s most whispered dirty secret, The Unsatisfied…
