Song of the Day: MxPx - Want Ad

Y’all better to get ready to put your boxing gloves on. You ready for this? Pokinatcha is the best MxPx (Magnified Plaid) album. Why? It was melodic, but still very much punk–bordering even on old school hardcore at times. It’s by far their most unique record, before they settled into the more polished pop-punk sound that everyone remembers.

Mike Herrera’s wife Holli just let the cat out of the bag and has announced that Mike, her, and the kids will be on an upcoming episode of Chip & Joanna Gaines HGTV show “Fixer Upper” where the family is relocating to Waco, Texas. This is huge and I am sure will be an enjoyable show to watch since many of us whether we like it or not, have that special connection to MXPX and their music for the past 25+ years.… Continued →
