CHIXDIGGIT!: Safeways Here We Come: CDEP

May 13, 2011

Yay! After a five-year break, Chixdiggit! is back! (I’m not counting the re-release of their first album because, well, that doesn’t count!) The band that created my favorite twenty-five-second song (“Quit Your Job”) and some of the most ridiculous pop punk song themes—”Henry Rollins Is No Fun,” “Shadowy Bangers from a Shadowy Duplex,” et. al)! Best news alert! They didn’t change anything! Rejoice, for progress is dumb! Songs about girls, the “swedish rat” haircut, and, naturally, a defense of hockey! My only complaint? After such a long break, I’m guessing most fans were hoping for a full album, instead of just seven songs. But at least five of these songs have been stuck in my head for weeks, so I shall complain no more! Welcome back, Chixdiggit!! If you were a cereal, you would be (and always would’ve been) Cinnamon Toast Crunch!
