Watts - "Heavy Metal Kids"

Photo by Micah Gummel

"Heavy Metal Kids" may be the first ever song with heavy metal in the title that isn't a metal song. Instead Boston's Watts bring us a glorious vintage slice of power pop. It's the huge guitars and harmonies of Cheap Trick mixed with the swagger of the Rolling Stones and the glam of Mott the Hoople. It's just killer old fashioned (well, 1970's era) rock 'n' roll. It's a fun rock song, no more and no less. Plus, it's Friday, so crank this one loud and enjoy.

You can listen to "Heavy Metal Kids" below. Shady Rock & Roll is due out May 15 on Rum Bar Records. You can pre-order a copy over at Bandcamp. For more on Watts, check out the band on Facebook and Twitter.
