"Whiskey & Razorwire (Get Over It)' is the second single from The Absurd's forthcoming full-length album 'The Sun Still Rises.' The song sees the band depart from their usual rantings about over-zealous liberals, and how the world is being overtaken by authoritarian dictators, choosing instead to focus on a more sensitive topic:
Women; and how (while all women are beautiful and deserving of the respect of every man for bringing them into existence) they're also all apparently ruthless shrews sent from the depths of hell for the express purpose of terrorizing men.
Because what the world truly needed was another song about women written by three straight, white men from Los Angeles.
As one would expect, The Absurd's take on love and intimacy is handled with all the delicateness of a caveman whacking a Wooly Mammoth with a sledgehammer. 'Whiskey' is the story of lead singer Ben Foerg's alcoholism-fueled tailspin after a break-up, as he lashes out at others for what is clearly his own personal problem. Yet another failed attempt at art brought to you by California's lowest common denominator.

One of our singers' favorite albums of the last decade. It's raw, it's loud, it's anti-authority--the name "Pursuit of Momentary Happiness" sums it up pretty well. What a rock records should be. The Absurd
