If this would have been the Screeching Weasel's last album, they could have at least ended their career with a loud, middle-finger salute. (Unfortunately, they would eventually try to recapture their old flame with a different lineup some years after this.) How to Make Enemies and Irritate People
was announced as their last record upon its release in 1994, with Mike Dirnt
from Green Day
filling in on bass/backing vocals. The music is still poppy and catchy, and Ben Weasel
perpetually suffers from "bad day-itis," meaning that absolutely nothing's different from the previous releases; except that this ranks right next to My Brain Hurts
as one of their better albums.
