The Briggs: Leaving the Ways

Or: what would happen if the Misfits lost their sense of humor & thematic core, and got a singer who'd drifted over from a Sham 69 cover band?... I'm sorry, that's unfair to the Misfits, who are orders of magnitude better than this even now (and really not much like this faceless punk). I just got confused by the one that goes "this is a song! for! us! whoa-o-oh!" Like Costello's complaint about some Graham Parker song: don't tell us that you're really gonna tell us something now!

"You've heard of screamo? Well, this is shouto."
