Can Halestorm Get An “Amen”?!
Halestorm’s new single and video, “Amen,” are very much in the grand tradition of American rock n’ roll: the lyrics for the infectious, shout-along anthem are a declaration of independence, a statement of rebellious intent, a giant middle finger to The Man. And its roots are clearly in blues-based hard rock, like vintage Aerosmith, and it’s completely lacking in any elements which one might argue are “trendy.” That soulful quality also makes it sexy (and I’m not just saying that because Lzzy Hale is attractive). I spent a lot of time making out with girls in high school, and often trying to convince them to do more than make out, while songs not dissimilar from this one played in the background. I look forward to cranking it while I make out with my wife, who, God bless her, will probably be more than happy to do more than just make out.
