The Scandals might be the most “Jersey” Punk band of all time. And I don’t mean that in the derogatory way much of America has come to view NJ through the eyes of a reality show lens. I mean it in the way that the rest of us, the regular folk, have come to know and love this fine State. The Scandals are for the kids that had working class parents and knew the virtue of making a lot out of a little. They’re for the kids that have had jobs since high school and understand hard work. They’re for the kids that fought like bastards to get out only to fight their way right back in. You don’t have to be from here to love them, you just need a pulse and the spirit of youth in your heart.
