I love self-loathing complaint rock you can dance to.

Ever seen the movie Loser? It came out the year I graduated high school (so all of you who can do math now know how old I am. Stink). I still remember the scene where he got 2 tickets to Everclear and the girl didn't show. The poor boy was so lost!

Anyway, every once in awhile I get on these strong nostalgic kicks to bring out the old punk, the emo, the "self-loathing complaint rock", whatever you want to call it, that I listened to back in the high school/college days.

One song that will never die is Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag. I so completely understand these feelings....

And while you're at it, check out Everclear's "I will buy you a new life." And for the song that was kind of my anthem for awhile, check out:Barenaked Ladies "Too Little Too Late."

Post Title from Loser.

I saw this post awhile ago & had been meaning to go back and comment on it. Who in the world would turn down an Everclear concert. They are probably my favorite band. A year ago January, I went to their concert in KC & actually got Art Alexakis to sign a t-shirt. I don't think anybody I told really found it that exciting. At that time, they were promising a new album for this year, so here's hoping.
