"In Remission"~The Menzingers

Hear this song instantly made my day better. It’s amazing to see how far this band has come in just 5 short years since I first saw them. I can’t believe this is the same band I saw open for the Cobra Skulls and the Copyrights at Subterranean in August of 2009.

Everything about this song is amazing. I love how my first impression was: “Wow, this riff sounds like ‘Anywhere With You’ by Saves the Day’” when I first heard the song.

I’m sure I’ll be singing “I hate how I’d always get nervous every time I tried to speak in front of a big crowd, a pretty girl or the police. And I hate the things I know about you and the horrible things you do”  every time I listen to this song and at every subsequent Menzingers show I attend.

I can’t wait to hear the rest of this record and I can’t wait until they announce more dates until after the record is released.

Kudos Menzingers. Thank you for creating another amazing tune.

yup this again. will be the theme for the next bit of time i’d say

Laurie and the BF have really turned me on to this band. also, they’re from Philly so natch, I have to love them.

I was JUST thinking about this recently. why everyone is flipping out over ‘Yonce loving sex, yet, Janet did that shit back in the day. I mean have you seen Janet’s live performances? IN A PRO PROS. 

I remember being young and not allowed to listen to Janet but secretly watching her videos and definitely feeling like this was not age appropriate for me. but also secretly feeling like “yea, I wanna be that confident when I’m older…”

anyway, the point is, Janet and Bey rule and no one should tell a woman how she should feel - sexually or not.


Disappointed Brand New Fans



We’re only the crowd who made you. No big deal or anything…” is a reaction many Brand New ”fans” had last night in Long Island after the band’s set list consisted of The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me and Daisy.

As we all know, Brand New has incredibly dedicated fans who love the band endlessly, so they decided to leave the show early when the band decided not to play Deja Entendu. They also took it upon themselves to chant “Deja” during the opening song of Daisy. Check out screenshots from the Disappointed Brand New Fans Tumblr below after the jump.

this is so hysterical to me but also I knew this was gonna happen because Brand New is one of those bands who refuses to play any old shit so why even bother to get tix if you know they’re not gonna bother to play what you wanna hear.
