Destroy Boys - "Beg for the Torture"

Destroy Boys have been one of the leaders of that newfangled punk rock that is more dance friendly and at times more pop than traditional punk, but the trio's latest single is much more punk than we've come to expect. "Beg for the Torture" sounds like an updated version of the Dead Kennedys. It's a ferocious punk song with buzzsaw guitars, but it grooves just as hard as it rocks. It's still just as dance friendly as Destroy Boys' previous songs, just with an even harder edge. If you haven't been able to jump on their bandwagon yet, today is the perfect day to do so!

Vi Mayugba says of the new song:

“‘Beg For The Torture’ is about being confused, like a lot of DB songs that came before it. However, this one is elevated heavily with new musical dynamics, and I think it conveys my feelings better than ever before. I wrote my part of the lyrics about going back and forth between resentment and adoration for a person. I often find myself in entanglements with people that I shouldn’t be in, and this song is a perfect representation of that. It encapsulates my feelings of obsession, rage, desperation, and catapulting between feeling like the sexiest woman alive and a neglected child’s plaything. Sometimes my crushes make me feel like the girl who is bound to die first in an 80s horror movie - this song represents that."
