Album Review

A couple years after breaking up, Screeching Weasel returned with a new lineup, a new sound, and an album that would influence seemingly a million imitators. Labeled as their big comeback album, My Brain Hurts has a poppier, more mature sound rather than the teen angst-ridden thrash-pop these guys were known for on their previous two records. And with their best-known songs here — like "Guest List," "Kamala's Too Nice," and their "I Can See Clearly" cover — My Brain Hurts was the album that would eventually define the Screeching Weasel sound for the remainder of their careers.

Good Album

This album gives me a feeling of nostalgia of my younger days. All around this is a good album and also my personal favorite from SW. Guest List is my favorite track.


"Science of Myth", "What We Hate", and "My Brain Hurts" are 3 of the best songs I've ever heard. The record plays so nicely as whole, as these really kinda introspective songs are punctuated by other equally well-written pop classics like "Guest List" and "Cindy's on Methadone". This is truly one of those near perfect records that you encounter only a handful of times in your life. The fact that they were able to follow it up with classic records like Wiggle, Anthem, and the nearly-as-great How to Make Enemies, is an unparalleled musical achievement.

Chicago's Screeching Weasel generally have a polarizing effect on most punk fans — either you love their amateurish, tuneful Ramones imitation and singer/guitarist Ben Weasel's smartass suburbanite, often pop culture-oriented lyrics, or you hate them. Over the course of the band's career, which lasted for more than a decade and saw several breakups and numerous personnel changes, Weasel (in spite of occasional nitpicking...
