This Ain’t Hollywood… This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll LP
The second album from an old Toronto punk band known for its cavalier offensiveness. Compared to their classic In Love with the System LP, which was filled with unforgettable satire like “Elvis Is Dead” and “No Beatles Reunion,” this new release is rather tame. Despite the personnel changes, the group retains its infectious pop-punk sound and its absurdly ironic quality, but the themes are much more pedestrian and much of the obnoxiousness is gone. I guess that’s “progress” for you.
