"Not A Sad Song" by Bay Area's Sore Thumb conjures up memories

Not A Sad Song by the Bay area's Sore Thumb has a free spirited punk sway in that 80's college radio way. I thought of iconic bands like early R.E.M and the Lemonheads. This sound is as fresh today as it was then and,in fact, feels cinematic to me and should grace a cool movie's soundtrack. Not A Sad Song is from there "Sounds Good" album up on their Bandcamp page.

If Roy Orbison was in a punk band - Sore Thumb aims to pull together the best parts of multiple decades. From 50s and 60s surf rock and pop, to 90s alternative and grunge, to the punk bands of the early 2000s, the members of Sore Thumb blend their disparate influences to make music that can make the booty bounce while also urging you to sing your heart out.
