Neurosonic: Drama Queen

Have you heard the one about four bands — The Offspring, Nine Inch Nails, My Chemical Romance and Motley Crue — that walk into a sleazy dance club? The result of this unlkely unholy communion is Drama Queen, the debut album from Canada's Neurosonic. Essentially a one-man band in the form of Jason Darr, this metal/punk/industrial hybrid is cocked and loaded with catchy choruses and witty barbs. The explosive first single, "So Many People," appears to take jabs at Ashlee Simpson's lip-synching debacle on Saturday Night Live and boasts one of the album's most memorable lines ("I know that your parents are brother and sister"). And it all just gets more twisted from there. Darr's huge voice, snotty but not obnoxious, is built for music equally as massive, yet he can turn down the heat when the music calls for it. Just listen to the acoustic, tear-jerking closer, "For The Boy."

Too bad about the ugly artwork…
