Titus Andronicus – “A More Perfect Union”

9 Jun

Official Video (radio edit)

Titus Andronicus had a new album come out this year titled Monitor. The strongest track in my mind is the opener, “A More Perfect Union.” It’s a driving seven minute punk song that kicks you in the face with a driving rhythm, self righteous lyrics and awesomely simple guitar solos. The song has a very Social Distortion meets Flogging Molly feel. Here is an example of some of the lyrics from the first verse:

Oh i never wanted to change the world, but i’m looking for a new New Jersey.

Cuz tramps like us baby we were born to die! (guitar)

This, ladies and gentlemen, is how you start an album; you punch your audience in the face.
