Vehicular Rockicide: Turbo Fruits in Goodyear Commercial, Natural Child & Strange Boys' Scion Single

Posted By on Wed, Feb 16, 2011 at 3:08 PM

Something about this weather makes you want to go for a drive, amiright? Turbo Fruits know what's up, as they lend their tune "Want Some Mo" to a Goodyear commercial. For, much like all Goodyear customers, the Fruits "use the world as their proving ground." Does that not make sense? All right, whatever. Point is, Turbo Fruits' high-octane Southern garage rock makes for a good soundtrack to footage of stock cars and drag racers slammin' ass in their beefed-up rockmobiles.

And, speaking of cars and garage rock and slammin' ass, Dirty Southerners Natural Child and The Strange Boys share opposite sides of a new 7-inch single. The songs — "The Jungle" and "American Radio," respectively — are available for download via Scion A/V. The Strange Boys are Texans, but Natural Child — as I'm sure we all know by now — are Nashvillians, and their lineup even features a couple of former Turbo Fruits. Scion's site makes a note that "The nostalgic lyrics [of 'The Jungle'] call upon iconic American images, like boxcar travelers and 1980s optimism." If you say so! Anyway, there's a Back to the Future reference, plenty of talk about makin' lots of money, and even a bleeped-out profanity. That's what I'm talking about.
