Heads up, Andrew WK, there are some dudes who may want to party harder than you. Meet Echo Park's MANIAC, lead by Zache Davis (The Girls, The Cute Lepers), and here's the video for their new single "Party City." To no surprise, the guys think that "Party City is a fictional place that many of us have lived." That's not the most insightful statement that's ever been made, but we agree 100 percent. MANIAC makes the kind of punky rock that makes you want to run in place, rip up whatever paper objects are near you, and empty a bag of Cheetos aggressively on someone before kicking them in the face. Sure, those ideas aren't that connected, but does anything actually make sense when you're partying? No. It doesn't. That's what makes it great.

Watch the video below, even though you probably already know what it's about. (hint: partying, beer, tattoos, partying, partying, partying).
