Honduras' new track "Ace" opens with some Johnny Thunders-style guitar before the band's vocalist Pat Philips takes over with a detached sounding vocal. But as the song progresses, it grows more frantic, with Philips eventually losing his cool, where he finally spits out "destroy!" during the bombastic midsection. This is punk in the classic sense – music from the balls, not the brain, that recalls the gleeful nihilism of the Dead Boys and Sex Pistols.

Rolling Stone Readers' Poll: The Best Punk Rock Bands of All Time

The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Missouri group have been blasting out DIY venues for nearly two years and on their upcoming second EP, Morality Cuts, the band explores both their primal and contemplative sides. "It was originally just an excuse to scream," Philips told Rolling Stone of "Ace." "However, the lyrics deal with the beauty and strangeness of two people focusing their attention on each other, and ignoring the rest of the world."

Morality Cuts arrives on February 25th via Black Bell Records and the band will play a local gig to support the release where there is sure to be plenty of screaming.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
