@Sowing: Same here! Considering how her last album went, I'm all for a return to the days of Sk8ter Boy - and just Let Go/Under My Skin in general

Melody reminds me an awful lot of '45' by Gaslight Anthem, however

I get that artists need to turn a profit, but goddamn the vid’s sledgehammer was more subtle than the JEEP WRANGLER UNLIMITED product placement.

Wasn’t bad. Fun track

Yeah they're very similar, as is the chorus chord progression and the refrain leading to the chorus has the same steps

Most curious about that Mark Hoppus collab. Make You Smile was one of the best songs on +44’s album.

Umm I'm pretty sure he already did that last year. At this point he's just waiting for time travel to be invented so he can go back in time and play on every album EVER made.

Does Travis Barker ever smile or does he always have that "don't fuck with me, I just might snap" look?

My gf recently started asking a bunch about Travis Barker and Blink-182. I was excited initially thinking she was going through a neat Blink phase, but unfortunately learned he is dating a kardashian and that was the only reason she all the sudden cared about him/blink.

Travis notwithstanding this sounds pretty much exactly like her early stuff, she has a very specific and not particularly nuanced thing she does and this is a fine enough instance of it

I like some good music (allegedly), and I still find it fun to indulge in very basic pop/pop punk from time to time. This reminds me of her earlier stuff in a good way, even if the melody in the chorus is a total Gaslight Anthem rip-off.
