We are in a new decade. And we are tumbling ever so quickly toward Idiocracy. Oh, trust me. We are. Somehow McDonald's is showing a larger effort to inform the consumer about nutrition while the consumer is just choosing to go down the street for a Baconator or a Quad Stack instead. And when Suzie Consumer wants something "healthy", she picks up a Nutri Grain bar. Because she doesn't care about the ingredients, just the fancy packaging.
And sex appeal.
OK, turn into fat, retarded pigs who know that electrolytes are supposed to be good for you for all I care. Don't pick up your copy of Eat This Not That to start a decade of knowing what the hell you are putting into your body.
But don't listen to garbage. I'm here to guide you. Maybe we can keep from falling down the slippery slope into dystopia, one song at a time.
Hot Topic and AP are going to be parading this horrible band around the country this winter and spring. Don't fall for it! You will immediately lose IQ points. There are other choices.

Where she gives herself to me
"What's the difference between them and Fall Out Boy," Mookie asks. I don't know why he doesn't see it. I thought he liked Fall Out Boy. Well anyway. Everything on this last album has been done before. You want a campy, feel-good anthem? Hawk Nelson is a good place to find it. You want a crafty, I-Miss-You or I'm-Better-Off-Without-You snarkfest? It's the F-O-B.
I'm not going to bother assessing for you the new album or any past ones. It's 2010. Use your taste wisely. Oh, so why am I using old songs to compare to these? Because my point is that Every Avenue never even needed to form as a band.
So how you like them apples?
