Toxic Lab Rats is a Swedish punk band formed in 2008. They remind me a little of Green Day but with rougher more punk vocals. That lands them closer to true punk than the emo of groups like Green Day.
The song “Mama Tried” is an old Merle Haggard song. They did a fantastic job and I found myself listening to it several times, each time turning it up louder. With this band, louder is definitely better. In addition, listening repeated times allows the music to grow. “Looking Pretty Acting Shitty” has an excellent beat, great lyrics, and a really cool guitar solo. Depending on the song, I can hear flashes of The Sex Pistols and The Clash. Each song has a good beat and edgy lyrics. This music is something I would put on in the car, put the windows down, and crank.
