I’m finding that more often than not my bias against “pop punk” is unfounded, and here Rational Anthem goes proving me wrong again. I can’t deny that even though (or maybe because) I know exactly where these songs are going to go after hearing a few chords that they have a way of imbedding themselves into my brain. Sometimes I’m perfectly okay with not being the least bit surprised. Think early Blink 182 getting the shit kicked out of them by life and you’re in the right place.
