  • Summers In PA (suburbia) “Spiro lied about him major and said ‘fuck the whole thing’”

   And don’t get me started of their constant references to Ginsberg in Suburbia or how that whole album is about going to your home town and looking at it with new eyes and how A+ they were at that. 

     There is a damn good reason they’re my favorite band. 

I know there are more, but these are all i know of off the top of my head, feel free to add more!
