Help, I Need an Adult! cover art

Politcally charged and ska influenced pop punk? Did someone make a record just for me? Longtime readers know that I have a bit of a soft spot for pop punk, even if I have to pause Napalm Death to listen to it. See, Sarchasm play with a unique innocence and beauty that few of their peers can really match. Yet, their is more to it than that, these are not songs like Stacys Mom that talk about the difficulty of being a thirteen year old boy in suburban America. No, Sarchasm go for the throat, exposing the truths of our twisted society. Their lyrical approach actually does in fact remind me a bit of the aforementioned Napalm Death. These guys are not fooled by the commercial society presented to them. They take the squeaky clean nature of pop punk and infuse it with intelligence and class. In other words, this is the kind of pop punk you can come back and listen to again and again. Not just because the music is great (Which it is) but the message behind the music really pushes the whole thing to a new level and showcases the magic that the genre can have. So Sarchasm, I applaud you, continue to make your music with it's wonderful intelligent lyrics, you, above nearly every other band in your genre deserve true success.
