Every music lover has that one good song or album that’s ruined by a shitty time or person. For Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano of the legendary punk three-piece, Alkaline Trio, “the Star Spangled Banner” was recently tarnished by a classic rock stalwart.
Skiba also discussed which breakthrough punk rock crossover classic was overplayed to the point of meaninglessness and Andriano revealed which earnest “Goddamnit” track is impossible to listen to in this APTV exclusive.
Previously, Alkaline Trio spoke with APTV about their newest album, “Is This Thing Cursed?”

Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano also discussed the importance of loving what you do in life, the influence of David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick on Alkaline Trio lyrics and the similarities between the band’s latest record and their first–the searing punk opus “Goddamnit.” Skiba also explained the high demand for fan-favorite “Radio” and how their current tour has cemented the song onto every setlist for the rest of Trio’s career.
