10 years ago today, Mclusky Do Dallas, one of the greatest noise rock albums ever made, featuring some of the greatest lyrics of the 21st century, was released in the United States. If you like hipster burnout catharis, funny/heartfelt social commentary, a healthy place to address creative jealousy, and maybe a Pavement spoof, I can’t recommend it enough. But I’m not gonna lie and pretend I wasn’t probably listening to Linkin Park at the time. At least it wasn’t Interpol.
This one’s for the patriots,
The new wave good time girls,
And if it wasn’t for the decepticons,
They’d rule the fucking world.
Andy Falkous. Truer words, man.
To my ears, the best song about the “selling out” dilemma since “Death or Glory.”
