Dat cover art… U mirin them mid-90s steez??
New Found Glory is without a doubt in my top favorite bands of all time (see my earlier post on their career for more info). Unlike most bands, who put out 1 or 2 good albums then everything else they do sucks shit, NFG’s catalog is consistently awesome, and I actually liked “Not Without A Fight” more than anything they’d done in years. I am stoked to see them back in action with a new single, “Radiosurgery.”
Is this a recent picture?? Looks like it, but WTF is up with their outfits– where do you even get a gas station jacket or mid-00s style track jacket in 2011? And why is Quentin Tarantino standing in the front?
This song is all, “When I am sad, I turn on the radio and then I feel better because music is a really meaningful part of my life.” I think every pop punk band has to have one of those, as well as a “life on the road song” about how its hard being in a touring band, but it’s cool because you are out there with your bros having the time of your life and you know you will remember this experience for the rest of your lives.
My first reaction is that I like this song, but I am not in love just yet. It’s definitely more punk than anything they’ve ever done, which is a little bit of a departure. That said, I’m going to give it some time- since every NFG album is a slightly different than the last, it usually takes me a few listens to really warm up to it. I’m sure I will love this one in time.
What do you think of NFG and this song?? Are Chad and Hayley still together? Will the next generation of bands write sappy songs about how much their iPod/Zune/Spotify means to them???? Like, “When I’m feeling down, I just stream my favorite songs on Spotify”?
