Crobot just may be the saviors of rock ‘n’ roll for a variety of reasons, It could be the lead singers piercing vocals or the large riffs that come exploding out of them. Either way Crobot are one the purest rock bands to burst onto the scene in the past decade.
The latest track and video plays on the confusion from recording the track, There’s a line, often repeated in ‘Not for Sale,’ which goes, “Who paid your debt to be here?” However, according to singer and lyricist Brandon Yeagley, the band and their production partners thought it sounded more like, “Who paid your dad to be here?” Engineer Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails, Them Crooked Vultures), who mixed the record, had actually thought that’s what the band was singing the whole time, Yeagley told the Wall Street Journal.
The video has a Twisted Sister – ‘I Wanna Rock’ vibe but instead of a gang of teens in high school it’s a crowd of dads in an alleyway.
