The All American Rejects - Gives You Hell

In ‘Gives You Hell’, the All American Rejects have created one those songs perfect to break up to, it presents that strong, ‘don’t give a damn’ facade, when in reality we’re all bubbling away with jealousy and resentment under the surface. The band’s trademark brand of light pop-punk riffs and lyrics are all there as expected, and whilst the hook and chorus is infectious, begging you to sing along, the song still suffers from an air of the repetitive. Definitely worth a listen; especially if you’ve recently undergone a split from a loved one, just don’t leave it on repeat- it may drive you crazy.
