While the rest of punk rock was busy trying to shake and forget its childhood, Redd Kross was fully embracing theirs, but not simply because they were children. Just put on Researching the Blues, the band’s first album in 15 years, and you’ll still hear their juvenile sense of romanticism and fascination with American pop culture, especially in songs like “Dracula’s Daughter” and “Meet Frankenstein,” which signal the end of satin-shirt balladry and the return of Black Cat rock and roll.
