“Roll On,” the latest LP from acclaimed Australian rockabilly-punk rockers The Living End is being billed as the album to finally break the band stateside.

Huge in their native land, The Living End has earned themselves a following among the skate-core kids who saw them on 1999’s Warped Tour.

Those kids made their anthem “Prisoner of Society,” which continues to turn up in a handful of movie trailers (see “Cheaters”), the biggest selling single out of Australia in the 1990s. Not that they had too much competition, but. that’s not the point. The point is even Green Day could learn a few things from these guys.
