Another Free iTunes Single of the Week: The Answer's "Demon Eyes"

Last week's prediction: Still can't believe this is what broke my streak of not seeing the new 90210.

Hmm--oddly appealing compact Black Crowes boogie from four Irish dudes who do their damnest to look like Led Zep in press photos. Not a popular pick in the iTunesiverse: "Like an outdated headbangers ball type of song"; "One word - 'Genero-rock'. Or is that two?"; "That was the worst song I've ever listened to," and so on. Shockingly, Grey's Anatomy-bait and bad rap does much, much better with the online cognoscenti, cementing my hard-earned impression that the primary constituency over there is a 17-year-old boy/girl who's full of rage.

The little in-house squib brags of a "vicious guitar solo played by a long-haired guitarist," but at very least The Answer are on the far side of the pre/post-MC5 split, meaning the whole production's pretty lean; hopefully they're cold-hearted, women-hating classic rock dudes, and not the flowery kind. I feel as weird about liking this song as you do, but there you go.

Next week's prediction: Nothing like this again, unless iTunes wants a revolt.
