Canadian Rocker Danko Jones is back with a new single called We’re Crazy. I remember first hearing about Danko thanks to MTV, at the time it was a piece of him regarding the fact that he was huge in Canada, Scandinavia, parts of Europe and Asia, but that he couldn’t break into the U.S. He didn’t even have a label in the states at the time. I also remembered him bringing up Kiss and saying “you’re either a Gene or an Ace fan”, to which I was like that’s ridiculous, before realizing that Ace has always been my favorite member of the band, go figure!
The new track, “We’re Crazy”, is pretty much along the lines of all of the material Danko has released, I would say he hasn’t really ever released any turds, but in all the years, he hasn’t exactly reinvented the wheel. That’s not a bad thing if you are just trying to go out there and entertain people, make them move, shake, and just get into what you’re serving up to them. The song is good, catchy, although he’s usually released one of his best songs off of his albums as a lead single, and I can’t help but thinking that some of the lead singles off of his previous releases have been a lot stonger. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of the album isn’t good, fingers crossed that this is just the appetizer for a main course that will rock our socks off.
