MANGES, THE: Go Down: CD

This band rocks! Totally influenced by early Ramones! Pop punk from Italy! They’re silly enough to cover Dee Dee King’s (Dee Dee Ramones’ rap side project) song “Emergency” and awesome enough to cover the Ramones’ “Now I Wanna Be a Good Boy.” It’s not like this is the most original stuff of all time, but sometimes you just want good, familiar yumminess. If this were a cereal, it’d be Fruit Loops! Yay!
