Alkaline Trio

Their songwriting tends to remind me of Elvis Costello's, Phil Spektor's and even Bob Dylan's, at times. Their lyrics are probably the most honest, real and powerful observations of an ordinary Joe's "feelings" in the Punk-Rock-sphere, thanks to a simple and very direct language, accompanied by three or four chords per song. They may wear make up, but then again, so does KISS. This is some of the best Rock N Roll music I know. Even BETTER than KISS.

"I rejected the faith in your holy race is what it comes down to,

you said everything would work out just fine I just went crazy,
I’m better now having a good time
being selfish, drunk, vulgar and lazy"
