Less Than Jake

Greased

No Idea

This is a concept album. Ever wondered what the soundtrack to Grease would sound like if it was down by a pop punk band? Here’s you’re chance… and it’s kinda fun! Greased is like a rock n’ roll high school attack on the teeny bopped, bobby socked ’50s kids. Evidently recorded a few years ago, this baby is a nice reissue of something that will never go out of style. Even if you only listen to it once, you should listen to it. Ska punk drag racing. Baby, yeah.
