Rancid, “Salvation”

Much like the Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs, Rancid’s 1994 album Let’s Go is as much a critique of the suburban lifestyle as it is a perfect soundtrack to it. Albeit, Let’s Go finds much less to celebrate about the suburbs, as it views them primarily from an outsider’s perspective. Of all the tracks on this wonderful album, an album often ignored in favour of their ’95 magnum opus …And Out Come the Wolves, “Salvation” best embodies this critique of suburbanism while maintaining a perfect beat to riding around in the suburbs on hot summer afternoons. Be sure to check out the lyrics.
