Dan Vapid sports an amazing resume listing bands from The Queers to Screeching Weasel but this, this is so far from amazing. First, I fucking hate jokey songs. Unless you are Childish Gambino, Flight Of The Concords or possibly even NOFX, man, just sing your song about something that I might give a shit about. “Runaway Jane” is apparently some kind of Tarzan joke and it was so fucking boring that I couldn’t hang on every word for 4 minutes to try and get the joke. That’s the problem, you didn’t hook me from moment one to make me want to hang on every word and sorry man, that’s on you not on me. Apparently there is a full album of this shit coming out on November 5th and I hope to god they don’t give it to me to review. If this is the single, the standout track and it’s this underwhelming from someone with this kind of resume than I don’t know man.
