9 O’clock Nasty Are Back And Laying Down The Gauntlet With Their Latest ‘Team Player’
From the opening of this cut comes two overall thoughts/anecdotes. First, I feel as if this song equates to a fight scene in an action movie where there are a series of rapid cuts to accentuate each connecting punch. This song is that scene as from right out of the gates you are getting rapidly punched with the glory that Nine o’clock Nasty has to offer. Secondly, hearing this engaging song brings my mind back to early 2000’s WWE, and Eric Bischoff’s theme song, which was “I’m back, and better than ever” which is the best way to describe this effort from Nine o’clock Nasty. They are back, and better than ever.
The ever-present drumbeat drives the song as the lyrics fully convey the dangers of being a “Team Player” and have crafted this song for all of us that fancy ourselves different from that. The gnarly guitars throughout this piece successfully send shivers down the listener’s spine. This an anthemic masterpiece to empower those of us that choose to be our own person and go against the grain. Those of us that choose to be individualistic instead of conveniently fitting into a mold and being the “Team Player” society wants us to be.
