|"Over the years,
most punk bands have moved away from the anti-authoritarian themes and lighter comedic
lyrics, but 30 Dirty Thoughts has stayed true to its’ punk roots writing hilarious
songs such as “Jenny Got Busted,” “Auto-Tune This! Singing Like
a Douchebag,” and “OMGWTFBBQ911.” They even have (gasp!) a song
that may or may not be critical of the government, called “Love In The Time
Says Kelk, “Jenny Got Busted [a song about a friend getting breast implants]
was about a real situation. I walked into a bar to meet my old friend and I literally
didn’t recognize her. I mean I saw her, but is that what I look at? Am I that
guy? ...She ended up playing the song at her wedding reception and her new husband
pretended to take a swing at me.”
Their album “Hard Times” is pop punk that reaches back to punk’s
comedic roots. And unlike the kind of roots that need color or bleach every four
to six weeks, these are nice to see."

band in L.A. that is earnest about keeping up what it describes as “punk infused
awesomeness,” and “30 Dirty Thoughts” lives up to its word. I
remember living in New York when CBGB-OMFUG opened in the lower East Side and punk,
what with The Ramones and The Patti Smith Group, seemed like audio anarchy though
I got it about addressing social issues. These guys keep punk tradition proud as
they let loose straight-ahead raw energy coursing through frantic vocal chords,
arms and limbs. They got the chops, and the audio tech smarts, to be one of the
top ranked bands in their genre. And they are very clever too. Can you think of
anyone else who has written a love song for the Great Recession?"

|"For six weeks, garbage
piled up in Toronto parks and arenas, was strewn by the curbside and even left to
rot in the middle of the road.
Most people were disgusted, some were outraged.
One Torontonian was so angry he highlighted the plight of the city in a song. He
even shot a video and posted it on YouTube."
