This band was one of those that I loved to hear from the very first song. With a great hard-rock vibe mixed with some well-seeded humour. Bowling For Soup have always been a must-have addition to my music collection. The latest song, ‘Hey Diane’, is no exception. They can tell some brilliant stories within their lyrics, and Diane looks like another great character for them to mine.
The lyrics state about how much Diane means to them, Jaret even mentioning how she fixed his hoodie (Frank Turner hoodie, wish I had one of those!). The band always seem to have this energy that I can’t see matched by any other band. The band released their first album in 1994, and their style has remained consistent and addictive throughout their career.
‘Hey Diane’, from the latest album Drunk Dynasty is definitely a hit. Using Pledgemusic again, the band have struck gold by creating another incredible piece of music. I will be listening to the album very soon (I can almost hear the fans shouting at me as I haven’t listened to it yet! I am sorry!). But if this first song is anything to go by, I can imagine the rest of the album will sound bloody awesome!
Final rating: 9/10
