Bad Sports: Teenage Girls (MP3)

Rock music should be fun, so why is so much of it not? Bad Sports know this and they’re out to teach bad bands a lesson. “Teenage Girls” rubs it in those bands’ faces a bit, and Bad Sports know this.

It’s evocative of a… Continue reading Sleep Whale: Cotton Curls [mp3]
