    This is the True Meaning of Rock, going over the top in their music production and have no limits as in playing with mellowhype and other members of OFWGKTA. This Mississippian duo understands the true meaning of music, to have a freaking good time and share their own compositions that aren't generic/(ChoRDCHORDCHORDCHORDRIFF) songs.

    GB City is a heaping helping of frazzled guitar caterwaul, bashed drums, and teenage delinquent lyrics about "talking to Elvis in my sleep" where Elvis responds, "I'm cracked out." [May 2011, p.83]

    These guys don't showcase a similarly thorough ear for songwriting, but as far as rock'n'roll feats of strength go, GB City, their debut, registers quickly.

    The songs on GB City, this band's debut album, are surly and mischievous, a pungent, effective collision of garage-rock bashing and Ramones sneer.
