SUPERMEN, THE: Back with a Gang Bang!: CD

Oct 28, 2015

Yawn. The Supermen are trying to be offensive, I think. I’m not sure who they’re trying to offend though. Suburban mothers from the 1940s? I’m certainly not offended. The most offensive part about “I’ll Fuck You ‘Till You Love Me Faggot” is the misuse of the apostrophe. I actually love getting offended by music and by art in general. I love it when art makes me uncomfortable or angry, because that often leads to me thinking about why I’m angry or uncomfortable. What I hate are these tepid attempts by bands that think that throwing around the word “pussy” is still offensive in 2015. And no, I’m not going to let The Supermen off the hook because they included a legit rad song about lucha libre. One success does not override a disc full of failures. So I’m throwing down the gauntlet to The Supermen: You’ve got the rock, but how about you ditch this Debbie Does Dallas softcore shit and put together an album that has the power to actually offend in this century. Let’s see what you got.
