Featured Review

Well, yeah, but it just takes off with a Ramones frenzy and some slick yet daring production that really freshens up the punk song format.

First is the little synth line or is it vocals? that combined with the guitar sound could have been off Ziggy Stardust, just a dainty detail that gives the song some extra musicality.

The guitar has a great stereo effect that works well in a song like this. The melody is traditional but not to the point I am thinking of some other specific popular song. The tempo and shortness is all punk, and the drums are active but definitely in third place behind the guitar and the vocals.

The singer has clear diction, good pitch and engaging emotion within a limited range. Furthermore, it set well in the mix. All in all, an instant classic punk anthem! Oy oy!

Makes me wanna go see a live show! Good, energetic punk rock, well-conceived and well-played. I'm liking everything about this, and giving high marks, but you lost the head-to-head pairing because the other tune was even more awesome. I'm looking forward to hearing more from this band!

Lyrics

We are the wave of the future, but in love with the past
Did you really think punk rock wouldn't last?
We may fade away, but rock and roll is here to stay
Load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down

Burn that bridge when it's time to cross
Pedal to the metal, and I feel real boss
10:30 gig on a Saturday night
10:30 gig and I feel alright
We're gonna load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down

Club owner says it's time to go
PA man, he wanna steal my show
I grab another beer, I give it a chug
I say, "Come over here if you wanna pull my plug"

Burn that bridge down to the ground
There's the door if you don't like this sound
You'll all fade away, but punk rock is here to stay
Load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down

We are the wave of the future, but in love with the past
Did you really think our music wouldn't last?
You'll all fade away, but Oi! Oi! Oi! is here to stay
Load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down
