“Ever have a day where you wanted to punch the world in the face?!! Well, that’s what ‘Smash’ is about!” exclaims Dan Pokorni, frontman for the Chicago-based independent rock quartet, Men Who Listen. Originally formed by Pokorni in 2008, MWL takes the best of the British invasion, ’70s hard rock, ’60s pop and melds it all together in their own guitar-driven rock that lies somewhere between the Beatles and Pearl Jam.

As the guys are presently working on the recording of their third album – from which singles “Go Get a Gun”, “Put Me Out of Misery” and “Smash” are taken – we’re stoked to be able to offer a free download of the latter. Grab it, listen to it, like it, share it… and repeat.
