Can you beat solid garage rock? If you have a band that has a killer formula that hasn't fucked up their quality of music, you should stay loyal to that band as a fan for as long as you can. Which is why you need to listen to the new Black Lips song, "Freedom Fries."

Black Lips are a garage rock band from Atlanta, GA that have been killing everything they do since 1998. Today, the band dropped "Freedom Fries" off their upcoming split with The Coathangers. I mean, who would've thought it would take this long for two of Atlanta's best rock bands to get together on a split? Nonetheless, "Freedom Fries" is a total banger and the kind that you need in your life right now. It's a little over two minutes, and is a constant stream and exciting bounce of fun. Really, what could be more American than grossly underpaying fast-food workers for flipping burgers? Underneath the fun of the song is a heavy sarcasm from the band, meaning you should listen to it right now.
