Bukkake Boys are back, and this time they're really pissed

Artist: Bukkake Boys
Title: Bukkake Boys E.P.
Label: Sorry State Records
Release date: Early 2010
Vinyl color: A few of them were on white vinyl

Atlanta's Bukkake Boys are back with their second 7", and there's a one in six chance they are pissed off at you.

Of the seven songs, all but "No Sleep", which I assume is about life on the road, is a blast of anger at elitists, selfish assholes, personal space invaders, fake bitches, nice people playing safe music, and those who "follow the leader/find a new trend". Had they not left out frat boys they'd have all their bases covered.

I'm not well-versed in hardcore at all, but I do know these guys capture the balls-out energy of the subgenre while swapping a political platform or apocalyptic visions for rants about personal freedom and observations about everyday shitty stuff. The music will make you want to break everything that isn't tied down, but the lyrics will make you think about what pisses you off or, if you catch yourself going along with the program, they will make you wonder why you don't get pissed off at yourself.

I agree with "fuck you trends", but after you hear this one, angst will hopefully be "in".
