When it comes to "critical" opinion, I'm in the group that really enjoyed David Ayer's DC Comics adaptation, SUICIDE SQUAD. In addition to the film itself being enjoyable in an almost-music-video kinda way, I really dug the soundtrack. It didn't fit the mold of what a superhero film usually receives, much less one from a universe typically known for sweeping cinematic scores. The fourth single from that record was "Gangsta" by Kehlani, used as a representation of the relationship between Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Leto). On this summer's PUNK GOES POP VOL. 7, New Years Day put their spin on the track, and now we've got an official video that finds Ash Costello channeling Harley, right down to an appearance of the classic suit straight out of Batman: The Animated Series. Check it out...

I covered NEW YEARS DAY extensively in my last gig a couple years back. In fact, my friend Rob LOVES NYD (check out his tag for frontwoman Ash Costello for all his coverage), and I've heard so much about them that it almost seems that I'm required to give them a little virtual ink here in the "For Grownups" section of The Rock Father. That said, Century Media will release VICTIM TO VILLAIN, the new record from NEW YEARS DAY on June 11. Check out the cover art, tracklisting, and some thoughts from Ash below...
