After two albums under the moniker Mariachi El Bronx, Los Angeles punks the Bronx are back with riotous riffs and howling, shout-along choruses on their fourth self-titled LP, which will hit shelves February 5th on ATO. If you can't wait to rock out till then, you can take an exclusive first listen to The Bronx (IV) right now. Kicking off with the pummeling "The Unholy Hand," the Bronx refuses to relent, unleashing hook after earworm hook on tracks like adolescent anthem "Youth Wasted," the powerfully subdued "Torches" and scorched-earth closer "Last Revelation."

“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."
