"1985" by Bowls of Soup (or whatever they're called)

Has anyone else heard this song? They mention U2 in the chorus. I'm not a big fan of the actual song but the video cracks me up. They'll probably be a one hit wonder.

It's the same one.

I blame The Darkness for this retro-revival recurrance.

retro-revival? aren't they a really bad pop-punk band in the vein of simple plan, the ataris, or sum 41?

Maybe. They seem like a really poor rehash of older stuff, which can probably be applied to some pop punk as well.

they had this song called 'the bitch song' or something...the line from the chorus was 'you're a bitch but i love you anyway/ you make me sick, but don't ever go away'. sang by a whiney dude, of course.

Sounds grand. Doesn't matter what style they are really, it's shitty whatever it is. lol

They already had a hit. I know this because they played at a stupid radio station festival maybe like 2 or 3 years ago, and they had a popular single that was played all the time...can't remember what it is though.
