“Fuck It, We’re Old” Album of the Year: Japandroids – Celebration Rock

Japandroids Celebration Rock album cover

Celebration as in fireworks, which open and close the album. Celebration as in, “hey we’ve all made some stupid decisions in the past but why not keep making them?” Celebration as in, “fuck you this is what we’re going to do no matter what you say.” Celebration as in, “what did we do last night?” Celebration as in, “get the fuck out of my way I’m already four steps ahead of you.” Celebration as in, “remember when…” Celebration as in, “it’s been a long time and it’s good to see you.” Celebration as in, “I know, I know, I don’t really feel like going out either, but do you have anything else to do besides sleep?” Celebration as in, “I have to be at work in 3 hours and I should probably sober up a tiny bit, but before that one more drink.” Celebration as in, “we did this all ourselves, and that’s pretty incredible.” Rock as in a spontaneously occurring solid piece of matter. Or maybe intangible. Whichever.
