I’ve honestly never heard of Ryan’s Hope but apparently it was something of a metallic punkrock band. Not sure what they sounded like but now it’s too late to find out anyway seeing as they started a new band called The Reaganomics. There is no metal in sight here… just pop-punk the way it was meant to be played alongside cheesy yet funny lyrics.
If you have a song about Robocop being down to party, Teen Wolf or Ed Hardy shirts, chances are I’m going to like your band. And if you wrap those lyrics in catchy yet fast songs, then I’m sold. It’s kinda along the lines of Teenage Bottlerocket, The Vandals or Screeching Weasel minus the assault charges. Red Scare really is on a roll here with yet another solid release!
