"Arguably the band's best, ranking right there with 1999's power-pop excursion, "Sugar coated SNOT POPS for kids," a really fun, summery CD . . . Fueled by a love of pop culture and energized by loud, fast Rock'n'roll, the band is putting together a sound that's equal parts smarmy, one-eyebrow-wrinkled humor and classic pop, run through a time machine into 1979. Mixing the occasional metal rave-up with a sing-along chorus, the band's expert at piecing together their influences, while maintaining an original take on life. Maintaining the ability to keep "Spiderman" cartoons at the center of your art's not something everyone can do. Luckily, the Ded Bugs can."
--Thomas Crone, The Common Space
"There are countless bands out there trying to carry the torch lit by the RAMONES but few, if any, can touch DED BUGS. What makes this band so good at what they do is that they take their undeniably RAMONES-esque sound and infuse it with their own personalities. Their sense of humor and their odd quirks shine through the punchy rock and roll with ease. It is impossible to listen to this CD and not get sucked into the bopping good times."
--Jeb Branin, The Crass Menagerie
