"Didn't Planet's sound here is somewhere between Fountains of Wayne and Weezer, with the just the right amount of smartass those bands are known for....The driving "Maryann(e)" recalls the poppier side of Green Day... It's nice to see ambition meet execution, and these guys have learned enough from playing those covers to make a sound of their own worth covering.

"The fun the band had putting this collection together is palpable and contagious. But don’t let the light-heartedness fool you – these guys know their craft. “We’re Goin’ Nowhere” sparkles with radiant harmonies and super catchy melodies."
Proceeds from Didn't Planet's "Boston Girl" go directly to the Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy fund, benefitting muscular dystrophy research in honor of a good friend and longtime supporter of the band. A previously unreleased single, "Boston Girl" is a guitar-driven story of love gone wrong in Boston. With Didn't Planet's patented brand of funny but poignant songwriting, the lyrics tell the tale of a Fenway "angel" and her short-lived romance with a small, dark stranger.
