We gave it a B-

Bowling for Soup’s 2004 hit ”1985” made them kings of their subgenre: laundry lists of popular culture references backed by chirpy pop-punk. Such songs make up the bulk of their ninth CD, The Great Burrito Extortion Case, which starts out fun but turns self-indulgent. (Do we really need 68 consecutive la-la-la choruses on the hidden cut?) Still, at least two tunes will lodge forever in your skull. One day, you’ll recall them fondly, and BFS, trafficking in insta-nostalgia, will be there to write a catchy number about that feeling.
