“How You Like Me Now?” – The Heavy
I’m sure you’ve heard today’s song before. It’s been featured in countless television shows, movies, commercials, and video games since its release in 2009. Hell, it was even Obama’s victory song that played at his campaign headquarters when he clinched Ohio and consequently a second term in 2012. Just cause a song is everywhere doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve to be though. The Heavy convey a certain underdog turned badass feel with the song that has universal appeal.
The Heavy are made up of Kelvin Swaby (vocals), Dan Taylor (guitar), Spencer Page (bass), and Chris Ellul (drums). Swaby and Taylor met in the late 90’s and began playing music together, before Page and Ellul were added to complete The Heavy. They released their first album, Great Vengeance And Furious Fire in 2007, with The House That Dirt Built and The Glorious Dead following in 2009 and in 2012.
Hope this song gets you pumped up to face your Monday!
