It's the catchiest way to sound like an entitled baby.

You know the Copyrights, right? They’re that band who’s been opening for the Lawrence Arms this year and who write insanely catchy pop punk songs you want to listen to 8,000 times in a row? Of course you do. (Look, we’re just trying to save you some embarrassment here on the off chance that you aren’t familiar with the Copyrights.) Anyway, they have a new seven-inch out next month via Fat Wreck which we will be buying and which you should too. From what we hear, they’re working on a new full-length for August so this EP will have to hold us over for now.
You can listen to a song from it, “No Knocks,” below which is about, well, let drummer Luke O’Neill tell you:
"No Knocks" is written from the perspective of a well-off person, who has problems like the rest of us, although those problems are dismissed sort of as "Cry me a river, rich boy."
In other words, #firstworldproblems. Here’s the song, you whining babies. Also, catch the Copyrights on tour...
