Every few weeks, Remember the Aughts’ official music consultant @misibel will discuss one of his favorite songs and music videos from the Aughts.
Few songs hold up musically or lyrically over a ten year span. Those that do are considered radio classics or pop hits that will forever be played at wedding receptions.
This song from Brand New’s second album displayed everything about the band’s maturation from their emo pop punk debut. Lead singer Jesse Lacey’s use of lyrical wit and imagery perfectly describe the fears and bravado of young men searching for love.
The song’s musical build up only elevates the tempo and overarching theme; a catchy beat to perform air drums and enough hard guitar riffs to keep your head banging.
