YOUTH GONE MAD/ONE WAY DOWN: Split: 7″

Youth Gone Mad’s side isn’t very good. This band has been around for fuckin’ ever, so you gotta cut ‘em some slack. It’s not good, but it’s not totally shitty either. Pretty standard poppy punk that kinda sounds like it’s trying to sound like the Vindictives, but not quite hitting the mark. One Way Down I’ve never heard of, and there’s a reason why. Whew! This shit stinks like the toilet on a morning after Fifty Cent Wing Night with a pitcher of High Life. Crappy, wanky bar rock that sounds like a bunch of dudes hanging out in GuitarCenter. This record is bad. Avoid it.
