Betty Blowtorch – “Are You Man Enough?” – [Foodchain Records]

ophelia necro   9/29/2008   A Library

Gritty, raw, pop-punk. Songs about rocking out & hooking up, revenge, love gone wrong, and so on.?? These girls are potty mouthed rockers that you would not want to bring home to your mother.
*LANGUAGE on tracks: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, & 10.
