Crankees – Punch the Boss

Genre: Punk

Similar artists: The Chats, Cosmic Psychos, The Saints, Dead Kennedys

Most books or documentaries about creative people, rock musicians especially, like to focus on their eccentricities, on everything that makes them different from regular people. They’re the ones that rejected regular jobs and simple life in exchange for going out to find their muse. 

One quick peek at the most famous and cherished songs of the past decades will reveal that the great artists rarely spent time writing about things that they didn’t know. Most of them documented simple, banal events in a way that anyone can relate to. A lot of the things worth documenting are the ones bound to make you angry. 

Crankees’ working-class revenge fantasy of Punch the boss is a punk-rock protest against being done in by the everyday garbage that ends up cluttering most lives. As you might expect from this kind of gutsy title, this is a song performed with great energy, rage, and even a bit of hopefulness. 


Hazel The Nut – Friends

Genre: Punk, Pop Punk, Alternative Rock

Similar artists: Blink-182, Sum 41, New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Four Year Strong, Green Day, No Fun At All

There are a few products that, when launched, require some robust market studies, stats, and the ability to read into the future. But, there are others, for example, candy, that, in the case of failure to sell, it will all be down to you to take the blame. Some things are simply liked by people on a powerful and basic level. 

It’s the same thing with colorful, fun pop-punk. While the kind of punks that dress in leather jackets during the summer and have tattooed even their eyelids might complain, there’s a simple reason why so many people continue to enjoy pop-punk. It’s immediate, playful, and reminds people of their best days on this planet. 

Hazel The Nut’s Friends takes the zaniness of mall-punk, bring their whole enthusiasm on board, and play their hearts out. It’s not a complicated recipe for sure, but one that is likely to be met by people that possess a similar kind of outlook on life. If you are looking for humor, energy, and loud guitars, it’s quite hard to deny the appeal of this.
