"It's Time To Party," the 1st song off of I Get Wet, opens with a rapid-fire guitar line - not anything fancy, only a couple crunchy strength chords to acclimate the ears - repeated two times earlier than a booming bass drum joins in to supply a quarter-note countdown. A faint, swirling impression intensifies with every one bass kick and, by way of the 8th one, the ears have prepped themselves for the steel mayhem they're approximately to obtain. whilst all of it drops, and the joyous onslaught of 100 guitars is ultimately discovered, you will have to forgive your ears for being duped right into a fake feel of defense, simply because it really is that moment intensified drop a number of seconds later - the single the place but extra guitars appear and Andrew W.K. slam-plants his vocal flag by way of screaming the song's titular line - that actually floods the mind with endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, and no matter what else formulates invincibility.

Polished to a brilliant overdubbed-to-oblivion sheen, the party-preaching I Get Wet did not catch the zeitgeist of rock on the flip of the century; it captured the timelessness of teenage, as energized, remarkable, and unapologetically silly as ever. With insights from pals and exceptional aid from the mythological maniac himself - whose sermon and pa sensibilities proceed to polarize - this e-book chronicles the sound's evolution, uncovers the relevance of Steev Mike, and examines how Andrew W.K.'s inviting, inclusive lyrics create the final word shared adventure among artist and audience.
