The Super Friendz – Rescue Us From Boredom (1995)

March 12, 2020 – Day 263

It’s still a little difficult for me to understand how a band who can write a songs as catchy as “10 Lbs” or “Karate Man” didn’t become a household name. Unlike their fellow Haligonians Sloan, The Super Friendz didn’t make the jump to a major label. They rescued a lot of kids from boredom with songs like “Rescue Us From Boredom” and were nominated for a Canadian Juno award but it didn’t translate to fame and fortune. “Rescue Us From Boredom” is a song about disenchanted youth, it’s punky, it’s a little grungy and totally 90s. “Don’t you know my life / Is such a drag to me / All this heavy metal / All this heavy irony / I wanna be back home / Watching my TV”
