News: The Crooked 45 Releases New Single “Why Are You Complaining?”

The Crooked 45’s message, attitude, and energy align with politically astute punk bands such as The Clash and The Sex Pistols. Brash and bold, the band deliver their message with big riffs, smart, relatable lyrics and catchy choruses that you might hear from the likes of Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys.

After the band’s first string of sell-out shows, they recently signed to Marshal Live and will be heading out on tour from March 2022, proving that this alternative trio are going from strength to strength.

The band are now back post pandemic with a brand new single, “Why Are You Complaining?” The politically charged track packs a punch, dropping the listener into an attitude-filled soundscape from the get-go. An anthemic vocal line and big biting riffs compliment a head-banging rhythm, capturing the raw anger that runs through the themes of the track.

The Crooked 45 explain more on the meaning behind the new single, “How people blindly vote for certain things and then complain when they don’t like the outcome. They aren’t all to blame though; culture of fear is writhe and politicians continue to outright lie delivering empty promise after empty promise without consequence and using some of the mainstream media as their mouthpiece.

“Big tech and global powers continue to play a role in politics plus society and anyone who does not follow the narrative is shut down or censored. The song talks about how people are too distracted or uninterested in general to fight for their freedoms, going along with the narrative and falling into what seems to be a new wave of totalitarianism.”
