I’ll admit even I have gotten a smug bastard smirk or two out of all the bands with punctuation in their names that have popped up over the past handful of years. I’ll even concede that when I saw the name Rock,Star I did one of these smile/cringe moves, but after hearing the band you see how important that little comma is. Much like Jawbreaker, the essence of the band is revealed in their name: They play a relatively hard (Rock), yet bright and shimmery (Star) brand of punk rock. Although not that far removed from fellow New Brunswick natives Lifetime, Rock,Star’s sound is much more directly indebted to later-era Hüsker Dü and early Samiam.
