Written as a celebration of playing music with your best friends, Power Pop Massacre kicks things into overdrive leaving you feeling as though your clothing was shut in the car door as The Stayawakes roar off into the sunset dragging you with them.


The lyrics are a mission statement for the band; "It's the beating sound that comes from your heart/It's when you fall in love, just to fall apart". An ode to "that" song or "that" band. The one you can't live without. We all have them. As you raise a margarita to the Power Pop Massacre, you can taste the parts that create the whole: a cheeky nod to seventies bands such as Arrows or The Starjets, a pinch of Teenage Fanclub with a sharp twang of Silver Sun and a hint of The Lemonheads with a mysterious undertone of Big Star. The Power and The Glory!

Lyrics: We didn’t mean to make your ears bleed, oh come on It’s the minor chord in your love song It’s when you wake up and you don’t know where you are It’s the lightning bolt on my guitar It’s the Power Pop Massacre It’s the Power Pop Massacre It’s the melody that’s in your head It’s everything that you never said It’s the beating sound that comes from your heart It’s when you fall in love, just to fall apart We didn’t mean to make your friends leave, oh come on It’s the major chord in your sad song We’re still awake and getting messed up at the bar A Status Quo cassette in your mum’s car It’s the Power Pop Massacre It’s the Power Pop Massacre It’s the melody that’s in your head It’s everything that you never said It’s the beating sound that comes from your heart It’s when you fall in love, just to fall apart.
