iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Hawthorne, Calif.–based Redd Kross, headed by brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald, masterfully jammed a wacky array of cultural obsessions into an ahead-of-its-time confection of joyful pop-glam, ironic sing-song, and backward-gazing hullaballoo. Booming counter-harmonies and bubblegum power chords uphold nods to mutant Afros, sugar cereal brains, and SoCal showbiz kids (Mackenzie Phillips, Tatum O’Neal). And from the hair-flying title song to the beach-punk “Janus, Jeanie, and George Harrison” (picture a mix of The Simpletones and Cheap Trick) to the anti-entropy thrasher “Not a Lot to Say” (“A nose is for snot/And baby it’s not/For a straw or dollar bill”) to the Hollywood trash blast of “Peach Kelli Pop,” there’s not a bum verse or chorus here. The songs are so inescapable that it’s no wonder many ’90s rock stars have gone on record over the years saying this album changed their lives. There wasn’t an album of the era that better celebrated its time and place.

A pre"Alternative" classic

Back when alternative was called underground music, California's Redd Kross recorded one of the great unheard album's of the 1980's. As teens, the McDonald brothers had made a name for themselves on the SoCal punk scene before joining forces with guitarist Robert Hecker and expanding their sound to include such influences as the Beatles, Yoko Ono, and Kiss. An album not to be missed! And where else can you hear a song about McKenzie Phillips?

Classic

This album is not "Grunge" or even proto-grunge by any stretch.
It's just a great rock record from awesome musicians with an amazing sense of humor.
Just try to listen to the album without preconceived notions about it being some sort of stepping stone from Beatles to Kiss to Nirvana.

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Hawthorne, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Inspired as much by breakfast cereal and kiddie TV as by rock music, punk-pop cult band Redd Kross were the brainchild of Steve and Jeff McDonald, brothers from the Los Angeles suburb of Hawthorne (also home of the Beach Boys) who began playing music together before either had hit puberty. Fueled by a series of dubious visits to famed area rock clubs like the Roxy and the Whisky a Go Go, they formed their first band, the Tourists, in 1978; Jeff, then 15, handled vocal duties while Steve, 11, took...
