Click to listen to Raw Geronimo's 'Role Play'

Indie sextet Raw Geronimo have recently released their latest 7", which features the upbeat surf-pop track "Role Play." Singer Laena Geronimo's vocals may be cheery, but she insists that the track has a darker nature despite its poppy sound. "'Role Play' is a super cynical, but also fun, song about people pretending to be other people on the Internet," she says. "Musically and lyrically it goes through a lot of different moods and perspectives, from whimsical to psychotic to happy-go-lucky pop and back again. It's a fun song."

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
