Kinsella isn’t just what draws listeners to Why Do You Hate Me?, it’s also the reason the album is so much fun. His delivery is snotty in the best, most genre-appropriate way possible, and his lyrics on songs like “The Truth” (which you can listen to by clicking the sample above) are surprisingly well thought out.
If you’re listening to Why Do You Hate Me?, you’re almost certainly doing so for the sheer novelty of hearing punk as interpreted by a political spin doctor. That’s fine, but don’t be surprised when you wind up liking it more than you wanted to.
