The third single from Ingrates (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100076447834757) today and their third appearance on Just Some Punk Songs. They're a trio from Joshua Tree, California with a line up of Nick Norrman (Vocals/Guitar), Justin Jurgens (Vocals/Bass/Drums/Guitar) & Stephen Dewitt (Lead Guitar).
Of those 2 previous singles I've detected hints of 70's style punk, glam rock and power pop and I've made reference to the likes of Tommy And The Commies, Exploding Hearts, Los Pepes & The Clash. This new single continues in a similar vein but to my ears I'm detecting more of that glam stomp/bovver rock beat. Can I hear a Cock Sparrer influence running through the song you'll find below?
Both tracks are very fine indeed, rough around the edges punk singalongs, you can get them here : https://ingrates.bandcamp.com/album/dont-be-a-stranger-b-w-i-dont-care-2
This is Don't Be A Stranger...
Every problem in life can be solved Just keep your head up and you will evolve So don't look so upset Living a life in the dark is not right Get off of the ground and run into the light With no regrets So don't be a stranger to all tomorrows dangers Don't be afraid to fight for what you believe Don't try to live a lie Just to pass the time Don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe When your friends fall and there's no one around Don't be afraid to open up your hand And let them in And when you fall and there's nowhere to turn Don't forget to ask your fellow man For help So don't be a stranger to all tomorrows dangers Don't be afraid to fight for what you believe Don't try to live a lie Just to pass the time Don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe
