Man, was I “out there” when I picked the last Fiver or what?  Talk about all over the spectrum!  Ah, well – say what you will about the carnival ride of genres – you can’t say it was boring…

The Sunday Scoop: What was that song?

Thanks for riding the Fiver! Check below for the details of the songs.

Details – the reveal

Here goes nothin’ … Track 1: Against Me, New Wave Against Me! is a Florida punk band that’s been around for a while but never has seemed to gain traction. I can’t remember where I heard of them. This is from their 2007 release of the same name, and I am enamored of every song…
