Day 14 - Descendents - I Don’t Want To Grow Up
Descendents. I’m guessing if you’re on this blog you know this band needs no introduction. I don’t want to grow up was one of their pinnacle 80’s albums, back when they were on SST! This tape had lots of classics on it that shouldn’t be ignored by any fan of anything this band has done; it was when the band started to venture out and wrote some really dark songs as well as some really weird songs too. I think this is when the concept of ALL and the persona these guys had in the late 80’s and early 90’s was really starting to show here.
I have a lot of specific great memories with this specific album, as it was the first Descendents my virgin ears ever experienced. Maybe it was because I got this album right when I was really discovering and getting into music, back in the summer between 6th and 7th grade. Hearing anything off this album kind of just brings me back to that summer. Really cool how music can do that to you.
