California's Neighborhood Brats just might be taking the baton from Dead Kennedys. Their new single, "Harvey Weinstein (is a symptom)," is a blisteringly fast thrasy punk song. The song is one minute twenty one seconds of the fastest old school punk you've heard in years with just the slightest hints of X style rockabilly. Just from the title, it's obvious the song is about misogyny and lyrics of "Closeted mysogyny / Hides the intent / Patriarchal values / Flavor the event" drive that point home. "Harvey Weinstein (is a symptom)" isn't a subtle song by any means, and that's the point of it.
