Bye, bye angelic girl groups of today and yesteryear — you’re on the Gore Gore Girls’ turf now. Part Ramones, part Donnas, with a pinch of Pipettes-like vocals, rhythmic Ronettes verses, and a splash of sock hop clap-alongs, Gore Gore Girls are loud, proud, and don’t give a damn who knows it. On “Don’t Cry,” frontwoman Amy Gore and guitarist Hammer stay true to the Motor City’s garage rock roots, taking listeners downtown to a place where girls and boys both can brawl with the best of them. With the follow-the-leader chorus, massively infectious hooks, and a ripping guitar bridge, “Don’t Cry” allows the Gore Gore Girls to usher in a new era of badass babe rock with their old school punk chops and beckoning bad attitude. After all, “a girl’s gotta do what she’s gotta do.” Get the goods on Get the Gore at Bloodshot now. SAMANTHA PROMISLOFF
