There is a bit in the opening track of this, The Blackout’s fourth studio album, where one of them yells ‘WASSSSUUUPPPPPP’ in the style of that toad in the Budweiser ad from the year 2000. Remember that? In truth, opening with a pop culture reference that is nearly a decade and a half old is a microcosm of everything you need to know about this album but the turn of the millennia touchstones do not stop there.
