Welcome to Cool Kids Never Have the Time, a place to find reviews, lists, and opinions on all facets of popular (and in some cases, unpopular) music.

Here’s how we break it down:

On the Record: Our review column. We take a look at new and past releases, basically anything that’s caught the attention of our ears.

45 rmp: Sometimes a single song is all it takes to grab one’s attention. Here we examine those songs, highlighting hits and misses from all genres.

Features: What doesn’t fit in the other two columns goes here, whether it’s an obituary for R.E.M. or a look at how I finally get how awesome Bruce Springsteen is.

Lists: We’re compulsive list makers here at Cool Kids, and what music site would be complete without them?  We cover everything fro year-end rankings to Artists Who Should Do a Bond Theme to Albums by Past and Present Guns N’ Roses Members.

In case you’re wondering, the title of this site comes from the Smashing Pumpkins song “1979.” I’ll leave you with its wonderfully nostalgic and bittersweet video, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, who would go on to direct the 2006 film Little Miss Sunshine.
