THE METROS (HOT WIRED SINGLE)

There are two songs on one side of this record and the other side is blank, but I think most if not all of the Rip Off singles are that way. In my opinion Hot-Wired is OK but, Go Mean is a great punk stomper. I'm not sure why they left it off the album. The Metros were a Detroit band that started in the spring of 1998. Musically they had that stripped down 70's punk n roll sound that Rip Off has become known for. Lot's of treble, but maybe not quite as noisy as some of the other Rip Off releases. The band was started by guitarists Mike Williamson and Chris Berlin. The two singles and one album. They broke up in the fall of 2000.
