Teenage Graffiti [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
In 2003 the Pink Spiders released Hot Pink on the tiny C.I. label. It was tinny, tough, and raucous garage pop-punk and it caught the ear of someone at Geffen. The band was signed and whisked into the studio with Ric Ocasek, where they re-recorded the best songs from the album and added a handful more. Ocasek, the band, and some studio musicians stripped off all the grit from Hot Pink, replaced the tinny sound with a booming, arena-ready sound and came up with Teenage Graffiti, a safe and slick pop
ock record that doesn't sound too much different that what Hilary Duff passes off as punk. Sporting lushly stacked guitars, sparkling vocal ...

Ocasek, the band, and some studio musicians stripped off all the grit from Hot Pink, replaced the tinny sound with a booming, arena-ready sound and came up with Teenage Graffiti, a safe and slick pop
ock record that doesn't sound too much different that what Hilary Duff passes off as punk. Sporting lushly stacked guitars, sparkling vocal harmonies, and the occasional decorative keyboard, tunes like the bopping "Nobody's Baby" and "Saturday Night Riot" sound like perfect slumber party jams, "Hey Jane" is tailor-made for waving glowsticks back and forth while waiting for the headline act to hit the stage, and the rest is catchy, energetic, and light as a feather. Some even step outside of strict pop-punk guidelines, like the piano-based, mid-period Kinks sounds of the ballad "Adelaide" with strings even or the silly Beach Boys vocal harmonies and mock metal soloing of "Pretend This Is Fiction." The lyrical concerns are girls, punk girls, and being as punk as possible, preferably with girls. There are the occasional lyric references to cigarettes, sex, or drinking that may have to be explained to the pre-teen punk set, but these are mostly done in a cute and cartoony way. In fact, everything about the band, from their look to the song titles to the band names Bob Ferrari -- real or not, that's a cool name for a drummer, is a cartoon, and if you approach the record expecting plastic cartoon punk, it's a satisfying and fun listen. More fun than Good Charlotte, less gloomy than My Chemical Romance, tougher than Ashlee Simpson, the Pink Spiders fill a need for safe punk bands that don't totally stink.

    An anachronistic explosion of what today's music is missing.

    The Pink Spiders have produced an album that is refreshingly original and exactly what today's music needs. Their sound is deviously charming with its 50s-styled, in-your-face elements and overall infectious energy, present from start to finish. While I prefer their faster, more upbeat sounds (&quot Soft Smoke&quot , &quot Modern Swinger&quot , &quot Hollywood Fix&quot , and &#8220 Easy Way Out&#8221 ), their slower songs still satisfy without bringing down the rest of the album. Combined with catchy, smart lyrics, this album is one that I enjoy jumping around while listening to and will continue to be for a good, long while to come.

    you're really missing out if you don't buy this album!

    wow this album is awesome no joke. I've already loved this band for a long time and I've been waiting FOREVER for this album to come out!! it is one of those rare albums where every single song is consistantly good. you know how when you buy a new CD, there's always those couple songs that just aren't so great? well with Teenage Graffiti, that's definately not the case. they've always done really upbeat songs and i always love them and i was surprised how awesome "hey jane" was considering its a slower song and its not what im used to hearing from them but it's one of my favorite songs on the CD! Some of my other favorite's are "Back To The Middle" and "Nobody Baby".The Pink Spiders are all about having a good time and that's what i love. You NEEEEEEEEEEED to buy this CD NOW or you will seriously regret it.

    The Pink Spiders own me!

    This album is the one that I've been waiting for. It's absolutely amazing. There isn't a single bad song on it. There's a little something for everyone. I really love "Hey Jane", "Adalae", and "Back to the Middle", though the entire thing is just spectacular. If you haven't yet found the time to listen to this album, I suggest you hurry up and do so. It's a must!

    Teenage Graffiti

    The Pink Spiders, Teenage Graffiti, is pretty much everything a good CD needs. It blends several styles of music together including Rock and Punk. Its a nice change from most other 'rock' bands out there now.

    must own this album

    Teenage Graffiti is by far one of the best albums of the year. With lyrics that are clever and music that makes you want to jump around and have fun you would be missing out if you didnt go out and get this album.
