Their OurStage Punk chart-topping song may be called “Loosers,” but The Gods Of Macho are anything but. They’ve rocked the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood, have a debut self-titled album available for sale in record stores all up and down the west coast and have licensed their songs to shows like TBS’s Glory Daze and ABC Family’s Make It Or Break It.
Taking a page from the book of The Ramones, the band’s member have all adopted the surname “Macho”: Gary Macho, Roscoe Macho, Camero Macho and Egg McMacho.
While they make take their naming cues from The Ramones, their sound is more Bouncing Souls than “Biltzkrieg Bop”. The band describes their sound on their MySpace page as “…1 part nasty rock and roll, 2 parts punk, and one part Burt Reynolds.” While I can’t be sure exactly how much Burt Reynolds was involved in its creation,”Loosers” contains enough hooks, “woah-ohs” and shout-a-long slogans and profanity to guarantee enthusiastic audience participation. With a refrain of “We may be losers / But we’re marching on,” it is impossible not to sing-a-long. Check out “Loosers” in the player below and see for yourself!
