"Semi-Charmed Life" is one of those songs that inspires complicated feelings: It's sort of obnoxious and ridiculous and yet catchy and... good(?). One minute, dude is singing about meth, the next he's all, "The beach gives a feeling, an earthy feeling." (And then he sort of raps.) But none of this hand-wringing matters: "Semi-Charmed Life" was so massive that it will live damn near forever, and we found a band that really, truly likes it. There are no tongues in cheeks in this performance by Frontier Ruckus, a Michigan band that just released its excellent third album, Eternity Of Dimming. We hope you'll enjoy the singing saw, the banjo, and the speaking to you like the chorus to the verse, chop another line like a coda with a curse.
