I've got no shortage of reasons to despise Watchout! Theres Ghosts, and perhaps it's a mark of my growing pettiness that their music is pretty low on my list. Near the top of the list is the fact that they are willing to toss an exclamation mark after "watchout," but not an apostrophe in "theres" to make it a usable contraction. That's just plain awful. However, my biggest beef with the band is utterly personal: They make me feel old. I know that it's a bit dramatic for a 25-year-old to pull the "those kids and their music" card, but, seriously, this stuff is completely alien. I can't imagine anyone liking this admittedly energetic pop-punk, replete with auto-tuned vocals and electro-pop flourishes, not even the 12-year-old girls who make up their core audience. I know: A former MxPx fan bashing a pop-punk band for silliness is the height of hypocrisy, and I hate W!TG for that, too, pointing out the ultimately subjective aspects of my job as a rock writer. It's the kind of sentiment that caused Creem magazine to famously postulate, "The men don't get it, but the little girls understand." Too true. I've prepared my laptop for seizure by the gang shopping at Hot Topic. Maybe they'll write something that makes sense.

W!TG is brilliantly amazing. If you listen to every single song of theirs, there is bound to be something you like. In the beginning, I didn't particularly care for them until I actually listened to them.
