Gaslight Anthem Stop By Leno

I don’t like the new Gaslight Anthem record very much. I find it all a little too showy and high-gloss, closer to Hot Topic emo than I think most people acknowledge. This performance of the album’s title-track, “American Slang,” does little to change my mind—the Springsteen-aping is over the top, and they look like they were cast by the Guitar Center’s marketing department. Oh well.
