Backseat Driver - Blackout

Posted on Saturday, September 04, 2010

I read the lyrics first and I thought that this band was going to be an extra-pussy, Glam/Sleeze waste, because the lyrics are simple, repetitive, and extremely sexist- to the point of being funny. Actually, Backseat Driver surprised me. They sound more like a Punk band than, say, Poison. Now, I’m not going to go so far as to say that I like this band, but there is something about them that transcends the stupid lyrics and simple music. I don’t know what it is and it’s not enough to save this band, but it exists. It’s sort of like Gwar, except BSD don’t have the same presence, skill, or heaviness, and are nowhere near as over the top as Gwar. If BSD were supposed to be a joke, then I think they might merit a higher score. This is way too funny to be taken seriously at all. And yet, they are serious. Oh well.
