A banger is a song that you want to just rock out to. Its got a strong beat, a tight sound, an attitude, works well with the windows rolled down, and just makes you say, “Yes!”
The Kills are a singer and guitarist couple that were born to make bangers together. They exude rock and roll attitude on stage and the crowd eats them up. I saw them when they released Ash and Ice in 2016 – a comeback after the guitarist suffered an injury that turned him into a four finger guitarist. Well, that limitation seems to have led to super intense, creative, rock and roll. I loved it and will go again anytime they are in town.
What is Rock and Roll if not about shaking things up, bringing some attitude onto the stage, and letting it all out. The first song below is live, which I think gives you a good sense of the band. The second is their massive hit from last year with a sometimes creepy, but definitely rock and roll funeral video for “Doing It To Death.”
