A career in a song

If Art were to never write another song, leaving JWAD as his last song, I for one would be satisfied. This sweet song leaves me glad I'm not American, having to worry about hating John McCain, but if you look at the song in a musical style, it simply tells the story of Everclear. With intro sounding like a b-side from Welcome to the drama club, it creates a typical yawn and roll of the eyes. Even the 1st part of the chorus has me throwing down a 3-star rating, until the 2nd part... Has a "Afterglow" power 90's chorus, expressing passion and pure rock! "if Jesus was a democrat..."

That leads to another classic Everclear chorus again, then to guitar power chord solo/ art vocal echo yell (Afterglow again) A nice low bridge breaks back a memory of a movie, american to be specific Then another break down just carries the song beautiful, complete breakdown, very Chrysan... outro! BUY IT AND LOVE IT LIKE ME! :)

Also instrumental to Everclear's success was the group's obsessive...
