SWMRS? Yes, SWMRS, pronounced “swimmers” is a punk/alternative rock band from Oakland, California. I heard this song on the radio a couple weeks ago and liked it, but I became more intrigued by this band when I heard the drummer, Joey Armstrong, is the 21 year old son of Billy Joe Armstrong, lead singer of Green Day, my favorite band ever. It frustrates me to no end that this band won’t spell their name the way it sounds.
Have a great Monday! ~Phil
That is such a fun song. How is possible that Billy Joe Armstrong has a 21 year old son? It’s stuff like that makes me feel old! Damn it!
I think Billy Joe Armstrong is 48. As I’ve gotten older I’ve kind of identified with him because he’s my age and he’s still out there kicking ass onstage like I hope I would be if I had a band. They are thoroughly entertaining in concert (click on the link in the post to read my description of the last time I went) If you get a chance to see them I strongly recommend it.
That’s how old I am, too. Ahem, but don’t tell anybody! I’d like to think I still kick ass, but I’m afraid it’s more like ‘make an ass’… of myself! 😀
According to my family I’m great at making an ass of myself.
Ah, I just went back and read the post about the concert. That sounds awesome! I’ve never seen them live, but I feel the same way about the Foo Fighters. So I know what you mean! Its so great that you got to share that with your son. Very cool, Dad!
Good video and song. Thanks.
