Let me start this review by saying that I’m a sucker for garage punk, so when I got a review copy of The Dropout’s new record, I knew I was in for a treat. And I’m glad to say that the record was what I expected and then some. It hit all the right notes, and I loved every minute of it. It’s fun, it’s rambunctious, and it’s chaotic in the best way possible.

You have no idea how excited I am to have this band as our featured artist for the month of July. They’re one of those rare bands that I’ve become a fan of after the first time I heard them, and now they’re back bringing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll to a wider audience. I’m talking about The Dropouts, who are coming out with their debut self-titled record.
Iconic rock band Led Zeppelin recently came under after accusations surfaced saying that they stole portions of “Stairway to Heaven” from “Taurus”, a song by a band called Spirit. A trial followed, with both Jimmy Page and Robert Plant appearing in court to plead their case. After a week of testimony, the verdict is finally in and the Los Angeles jury has found in Led Zeppelin’s favor.
