Everything I Didn't Say
Too many whoa-oh-ohs and not enough gabba-gabba-heys? Oh, you punk purist. Best not to think of these Australian cuties as anything other than a boy band who've calibrated their choruses to mime Blink-182 riffage. Surrender to their gumdrop charms and you'll find insanely catchy melodies and plenty of teen poetry ("You look so perfect standing there / in my American Apparel underwear"). And between tales of fake IDs and kissing at the stop signs, they drop a lament as timeless as The Beach Boys' "When I Grow Up (To Be a Man)": "I'll make my move when I get older," by which they mean 18.
