"It's Time To Party," the 1st tune 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 sooner than a booming bass drum joins in to supply a quarter-note countdown. A faint, swirling influence intensifies with every one bass kick and, via 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 eventually discovered, you will have to forgive your ears for being duped right into a fake experience of protection, simply because it is that moment intensified drop a couple of seconds later - the only the place but extra guitars occur and Andrew W.K. slam-plants his vocal flag by means of screaming the song's titular line - that truly floods the mind with endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, and no matter what else formulates invincibility.

Polished to a vibrant overdubbed-to-oblivion sheen, the party-preaching I Get Wet did not seize the zeitgeist of rock on the flip of the century; it captured the timelessness of minor, as energized, amazing, and unapologetically silly as ever. With insights from associates and unheard of support from the mythological maniac himself - whose sermon and dad 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 last word shared event among artist and audience.
