BOWLING FOR SOUP – SINGLE REVIEW

Bowling for Soup – Don’t Be A Dick 
Bowling For Soup - Don't Be A Dick


Release Date: Out Now

Ah, Bowling For Soup. The kooky ones from the early 00s skate-punk scene who did a kid’s cartoon theme tune that, for some reason, I know off by heart. Well, this isn’t a comeback because I don’t think they ever went away for those that paid attention but this new single is so incredibly pertinent and to the point that it’s worth pausing to pay attention to – largely because it will get less radio play than that ‘Liar Liar’ song about how shit Theresa May is as a person. ‘Don’t Be A Dick’ is the new single and it’s basically skate-punk 101 with a sing-a-long chorus and a message that really couldn’t be any clearer – be nice, stop hating on strangers for the sake of it and just get the fuck on with your life with a smile on your face. There’s not much more to it than that to be honest so if you feel a little angry and fancy a bit of a pogo round your lounge while you sing Tenacious D level lyrics about people being dicks then you’ve found your soundtrack to that particular niche.
