Speaking of Me First & the Gimme Gimmes, I too was once into pop-hook-laden punk rock with a sense of humor. This is a video from a once-favorite band of mine, The Vandals, doing a song from a movie I’ve never seen but which stars Sam Rockwell, Ben Afleck, and French Stewart. Note to self: why haven’t I seen Glory Daze?
I just dared to re-visit this band, one that I have not listened to a great deal of since high school, and was both relieved and slightly worried to find that I still have a gigantic soft spot for them. They are just too much goddamn fun.
Anyway, this is the ACTUAL OFFICIAL VIDEO which causes me to feel…well, thrilled, but also somewhat offended.
I really can’t stress this enough: Marcy Playground has some fantastic songs other than “Sex and Candy”. I PROMISE. I love this band so much it isn’t in the least bit funny, but mostly I appreciate them for how stupidly 90’s they are.
