Once referred to ironically as “Thurston Moore & the E Street Band,” The Men have never played by categorical rules. Instead, over the last three years, this band has dabbled in everything from hardcore punk, to psych, to black metal.

Our Jam of the Day illustrates the above Boss substitution brilliantly. As hardcore as it is melodic, it takes a typical punk format to the next level by adding in instrumentation not currently associated with that musical style.
