On Friday night, I was killing some time and ran in to a music store at my local mall. I decided to pick up another Attack Attack! CD. I already own the deluxe reissue of the band's self-titled record and thought another album would be good to throw on my running iPod. Well, I grabbed an Attack Attack! disc and checked out. Imagine my surprise when I popped the disc into my CD player and was met with some pop rock and not screamo. Yes, I picked up the UK Attack Attack! - not my beloved boys from Ohio. Alas, I was mad!
The only other instances of bands having the same name I can think of off the top of my head is Wrathchild and Skid Row. I feel stupid and can't believe I bought the wrong band's album, but I was just grabbing whatever and all the Attack Attack! albums were in the same bin. So really, I blame F.Y.E.
Oh, and if you don't know Attack Attack! (the Ohio version!) here's "Smokahontas."
