  • The Vandals are like a Tex Avery cartoon. They're wacky, their intentions are absurdly comedic, and their eyes pop out whenever they see a cute girl passing by. But one thing for sure is that the Vandals are way past their angst-filled "Suburbia" days; now they just want to make people laugh with their upteenth album Hitler Bad, Vandals Good. Normally, when a punk band -- or any band in general -- tries to be funny and musically inclined at the same time, they only succeed in one of the two efforts. Surprisingly, the Vandals have a nice balance of both with songs like "My Girlfriend's Dead," with the lyrics "My girlfriend's dead you see, it's a total lie -- but it's easier on me than having to admit that she likes someone else." Then there's "I've Got an Ape Drape," which throws out a plethora of adjectives for the short-on-top-long-in-back haircut "Hockey Hair, Mullet, Norco Neck Warmer." To top it off on a serious note, there's even a nice dedication to former Pennywise bassist Jason Matthew Thirsk, who committed suicide a year prior to this release. ~ Mike DaRonco
