Everyone Is Dirty – Teeth of the Beast

Oakland’s Everyone Is Dirty release Teeth of the Beast with tour underway

With a purrfect homage to King Ghidorah on the cover of “Teeth of the Beast,” Everyone Is Dirty prowls through an amazing blend of alt and indie rock that is as much spunky as it is reactionary. From the moment you dive in, you will fall in love. No, seriously, this song is so good. Lord have mercy!

Thematically, “Teeth of the Beast” professes a call to arms, a reason to get up and get going. Do something and make something count. “Teeth of the Beast” was written about radical baseball player and media antagonist Dock Ellis. What does this have to do with the cool constructs of the song? It’s not just that he fought for African American rights but in 1970, he pitched a no-hitter game on acid. Let that sink in.

Beyond the story, the music is a rolling party moving at top speeds. Little perks peak out like Sivan Lioncubs’ snarly vocals, subtle sincerity through strings in the second chorus, or the garage rock shake up in the chorus. These are the things that turn this song into gold. Everyone Is Dirty will blow your mind.
