Artist: Eagles of Death Metal Track: "I Wannbe in L.A." Album: Heart On Listen
The name is a lie, a clever and memorable twist of irony. It's not death metal. Or metal. Or even hard rock. The best is a catchy blend of electro-pop and the garage rock that people got all googley-eyed circa 2001. Their saving grace is feelin' it. From their Jagger-kick photo shoots to their forceful, balls-out delivery, these two lovable goons want you to dance, not scoff, and have a good ol' time. I don't really ever want to be in L.A., but I'll blast this song driving to just about anywhere else.
