All-American Rejects CD AlbumIt's been a while since I've posted up some quality music, I've been focusing on SEO, keywording, transfering to our new domain, and DoFollow commenting. In an attempt to bring the good stuff back into your life, I'm hittin' you with the new The All-American Rejects song, "Gives You Hell". When I was cruisin' down the highway in my Dad's new Acura MDX, I heard the song on XM Satellite Radio. Being the intellectual idiot that I am, for some reason I forgot to look at what the song was called under the audio menu, and continued to rock out to the sexy song pumpin' up the jams, pushing the pedal to the metal.

The All-American Rejects have been known for their catchy tunes and stellar lyrics including "Dirty Little Secret". This my friends, is one of those songs. Although I haven't had time to completely dissect the words of the song, I do know that the track is straight fire, and the music video is funny. If I had to take a guess, I'd have to say this guy's girlfriend cheated on him, and now she wants him back. He's not having any of that and is throwing it back in her face.

EDIT: This isn't about his girlfriend, it's a multi-faceted BROMANCE!!!

The best part of the song has to be:
And truth be told I miss you
And truth be told I'm lying
which segues back into the rockin' chorus:
When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
I love his sarcasm, it's just so fitting!

Overall, I rate this song an A+ for effort, attitude, rhymes, retro-activity, and rock.
Good job All-American Rejects, you've done it again.

And as always, be sure to enjoy :)

This really isn't that "new" of a song but I will agree that it's starting to take over the air waves!

At the gym I workout at in chicago this song must be on the clubcom (the company who picks what music videos get played) repeat button! It's not that it's a terrible track, it's that it's slowly becoming an overplayed annoying track!

Yeah I've actually just started hearing it, but I can see that it could get a little annoying could get a little annoying.
I also realized I made a mistake, this isn't about a girlfriend, it's a bromance!

A bromance... I love that word. Now guys can admit to their platonic affections for each other, and it can be cool!

Work at a gym too, and the song played 5 times during my shift. Now it's 2:30am and I can't fall asleep because it's playing and replaying and replaying and replaying and replaying in my head. I'd like to roast each of the band members on a spit while they are still alive.
