    This record is a disgrace. The Donnas were always a band you could count on to make a honest, straightforward rock album that worshiped at the altar of Kiss, AC/DC and Motley Crue. The biggest inspiration for this nonsense seems to be Winger and Warrant and they should've never inspired anyone. it's nothing but slick production, big guitars and no songs. What's all the more This record is a disgrace. The Donnas were always a band you could count on to make a honest, straightforward rock album that worshiped at the altar of Kiss, AC/DC and Motley Crue. The biggest inspiration for this nonsense seems to be Winger and Warrant and they should've never inspired anyone. it's nothing but slick production, big guitars and no songs. What's all the more sad about it is how they seemed to be maturing as a band so well on the last record (Gold Medal). If you think Vixen rocks, you'll love "Bitchin". Expand

  1. the Donnas once rocked as if they were tanked to the gills but they now sound like they're playing with ferocious hangovers they just can't shake--and it's hard to have a good party if the threat of the morning after hangs over the whole affair.
  2. While superbly recorded and at times a hoot to crank (largely for the shameless rips of Kiss, Joan Jett and Def Leppard), Bitchin' is too light on hooks.
  3. Bitchin' offers little you haven't heard before--even if you haven't heard a Donnas record--but it should go well with a beer or six.
