There’s something about a long-weekend that not only brings up nostalgic feelings of holiday’s past, but also forces us to plan new memories for the precious extra day we all get off.

That’s why summer hits happen: this year it’s ‘Fancy’ by Iggy Azalea, last year it was ‘Get Lucky’ by Daft Punk, etc… etc… In the 90’s these hits included those such as ‘Steal My Sunshine’ by Len, or ‘All The Small Things’, by Blink-182.

This weeks long weekend edition of “On Repeat All Weekend” transports you to the carefree summers of the late-90’s where listening to Biff Naked, Weezer, Blink-182, or any number of pop-punk acts was sort of an act of rebellion cause it was pretty much guaranteed that your parents had no idea what you were listening to.

The Muffs, a relic from these long forgotten days, just released an album that sounds like it could’ve been recorded in 1997 but took 17 years to reach us. It’s a record that’s straight ahead, has no pretenses, pulls no punches, it’s a punk record. It’s great.
