I don’t know if Pimpbot set out to do this, but this Hawaiian band writes anthems. No, I’m not talking about arena-style anthems that will have you pumping your fist. I mean this band writes anthems for everyday things.
“Man You Missed Out” is a song that should be an anthem for everyone who decides to end an evening early and head home. The story of this song is simple. Someone is out with friends and instead of having another beer, he decides to go home…only to miss out on the real events (including girls stripping) of the evening that start right after the guy leaves. “Next time, listen to your friends. Next time, better stay ’til the end.” We’ve probably all had one night where we’ve been on either side of this story.
“Meet You at the Bar” is a tongue-in-cheek anthem for everyone who’s struggling. The narrator of this song sings, “Give up hope. Dreams are for suckers. Just be glad that you made it this far. It’s reality. I’ll meet you at the bar.” At least I hope this is tongue-in-cheek. As fun as it is to have a few drinks with friends, if you had friends that counseled you to give up your dreams to go drinking…well, you wouldn’t need enemies.
The vocals of this band are a little similar to Mighty Mighty Bosstones while the melodies are much more easygoing (this band is from Hawai’i after all). If you want some tunes you can dance to and use to get mellow, check out Pimpbot.
