I'd say that congratulations are certainly in order for Denton's Bowling for Soup this week. Why? Well, quite a few reasons actually. For one, the band's tenth studio release, Sorry For Partyin', is getting prepped for release on Jive Records. And, secondly, the band's already debuted the first single from the upcoming disc, a track called "My Wena," which already has a video (see above) and will be available for download starting next Tuesday.
But, lastly and most importantly, the guys deserve some sort of recognition for having the, uh, balls to take a one-bit joke about genitalia and turn it into an almost three-minute song--and then someone convince the geniuses at the label that it'd be a good idea to release that as a first single.
So, yeah: Keep on keeping on, major labels. You'll right this whole "industry going down the drain" ship eventually...
