Attila "Middle Fingers Up" Song Review — 4.5 out of 5 stars

So, the 21st century needed its own version of Beastie Boys' "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)", and we got it in Attila's "Middle Fingers Up". The first single from About That Life, out June 25, slides from a furious and funny rapped opening into a crushing guitar and drum bitchslap. Chris "Fronz" Fronzak drops a hilarious rhyme to kick things off, starting the party by lighting a metallic powder keg. Then, everything snaps into a furious groove that's worth ass-shaking on the dance floor or ass-beating in the mosh pit. Attila don't fuck around. They make true blue party metal that the world could use more of. We've gotten too accustomed to "down and out" emo-core and overly cerebral hipster metal. It's time to wild out and scream "show me your tits" once more. Isn't that what rock 'n' roll's about? Don't take it too seriously. Think of it like "Nookie" 2013, and you'll be all good. It's a fucking blast and one of the most refreshing metal tracks of the year.
Do you dig the song?
