Mean Jeans write punky, unsolicited commercial jingles for new LP (stream it)
Mean Jeans are following 2016’s Tight New Dimension with a new album called Jingles Collection, and that title is to be taken very literally. The songs on this album are original, unsolicited commercial jingles for Mountain Dew, Coors Light, Dunkaroos, Pop Rocks, Wendy’s, Appleebees, Hot Pockets, Capri Sun, Taco Bell, and much more, all written in Mean Jeans’ Ramones-worshipping style. “3-chord pop punk has already been done. But unsolicited jingles for corporations that rock? Not until now,” said singer Billy Jeans, before adding, “I can die with confidence that we wrote enough songs about partying. But could I say the same about my favorite chain restaurants? Not until now.” The album drops this Friday (2/16) via Fat Wreck Chords (pre-order), but you can hear the whole thing now. A full stream premieres below.
