I wanna burn my old highschool into the ground
I hate everybody in my hometown
Tell the rich kids to look at me now"
Lil' Peep - Cry Alone
(From Come Over When You're Sober Part 2 album; 2018)
Crux of this song? It's okay to be down with the Trenchcoat Mafia if you're an outlaw like Jason Dean and not an oddball like Dylan Klebold.
Dear diary, my teen angst bullshit is back with a body count. I can't cosign Lil ' Peep's Madchester curtains in the Cry Alone video, I can cosign the song itself. Lil' Peep's debt to Max B stays unacknowledged, but it's there in the way he finds melody in monotone, and it's deliberate. Basically, when Peep was bad he was the 'Murican Milkavelli, and when Peep was good he was the mall-goth Max B. Song rating: BQ or plain? BQ!!!
Related: R.I.P to ScuzzTV on the Freeview music channels. Where is ya host now supposed to catch the videos for Green Day's Basket Case, Crazy Town's Butterfly, Sum 41's Fatlip, and Fall Out Boy's Dance Dance when KerrangTV is playing shitty Biffy Clyro videos all night?
