Afternoon Tunes: Sloppy Seconds, "Black Roses"

April 21, 2017 | by Jocelyn Hoppa

Well, we've been your new weirdo music publication now for one week. To celebrate: Here's punk band Sloppy Seconds with a song off their 1989 debut album Destroyed (parody of the 1976 Kiss album Destroyer, see album cover). If you will, "Black Roses" is a bit of a cautionary tale.

I'm not sure if Sloppy Seconds took over full control of their Wikipedia pages, but they are pretty entertaining in their own right. The Ramones-influenced band from Indiana say they gained underground cred via punk-fueled songs about pornography, horror films, TV shows, comics, booze, and generally being fat and getting drunk.

That works for us.
