    A for effort. A for having the balls to cover The Gun Club.

    love the song, but I agree in that it doesn't fit in with the rest of the album.

    Funny, I think this is one of the better tracks on CR.

    From a lyrical/thematic viewpoint, Younger Us fits in with the album a hundred times better than For the Love of Ivy does despite, yes, being 2 years old. I guess this song just doesn't sound terribly Japandroidsy even with their usual enthusiasm and barrage of noise; and it's not even a simplicity issue, it's more of a chord progression thing. Their mclusky cover on All Lies even sounded Japandroidsified, but this one just won't fit in no matter how hard I try to shove this square peg into the triangular hole that is Celebration Rock.

    So much hate. I don't get why people are complaining about "pointless loudness" and "lack of simplicity". 1. This song is very simple. 2. It's mother-fucking Japandroids. Their supposed to be loud and energetic like this. I guess I can see the "not fitting in" complaint, but I don't see this many complaints with Younger Us which is just as different from the rest of the album. It was recorded 2 years ago and is the most pop sounding thing they've ever done.

    Glad to see everyone else dislikes this. Doesn't fit quite right with the rest of the album. 4.5/5 but could have been the first 5 of the year if this was replaced with something awesome.

    I'd say this is the only thing that keep Celebration Rock from near-perfection. I can see why they did it what with Fire of Love being a huge favorite of Brian's and all, but I'd much rather have seen their original songwriting given another chance to shine.

    it probably reminds you of older punk cause it was written and recorded in the early 80s mate...
