FIDLAR - "40oz. On Repeat"

Download attachments:

People-shaped clouds of weed smoke and PBR mist FIDLAR released their newest  spectacle of wacky antics set to music, "40oz. On Repeat", this morning. Featuring stray dogs, lots of pantyhose, and ample shenaniganisms, these young at heart twenty-somethings continue to refuse to grow up and act their age - and why should they? As the current Patron Saints Of The Beer Bong, FIDLAR's grasp on the collective consciousness of young rebels is matched by none. 

Which makes their spot on recreations of classic music videos all the more interesting. At the core of the party punk mentality is an almost laser-like focus on active non-conformity, but the multiple homages to villains of punk past such as Britney Spears hint at more creative motive than rebellion for the sake of the rebels.

Perhaps these Titans of Tomfoolery are growing up after all. Nobody, not even the flagship band of lo-fi legends Mom + Pop can stay young forever, and that includes their core fans... 

Then again, there's always a new batch of raucous recently graduated teenagers to recruit into the gaggle of gregarious partygoers who guzzle at the tit of FIDLAR's never-ending fountain of malt liquor.

    YUNG PINCH, TAKE IT BACK Since Yung Pinch dropped “Rock With Us’ back in 2016, I’ve been fascinated with his unique and colorful vibe. When the rap scene was devolving to drugs, guns, repetitive monotonous flows, and drill culture, Yung Pinch separated him from the pack with a colorful lighthearted melodic California beach vibe.
