Our Favorite Lyrics From Hot Mulligan’s New Album, Why Would I Watch

Ever since they released their two singles, ‘Shhhh! Golf is On’ and ‘Gans Media Retro Games,‘ we’ve been stoked for Hot Mulligan’s album, Why Would I Watch. It’s no secret that we at The Honey POP have been longtime stans of the post-pop punk band.

Even though we’re constantly listening to them, there’s still no denying that it can be difficult to understand what lead vocalist, Tades Sanville is saying. We aren’t complaining since that’s usually how it goes with this genre. But to get the full effect of their latest album, Why Would I Watch, here are some of our favorite lyrics.

‘It’s A Family Movie She Hates Her Dad’

“Nothing special,
family name,
I’ll never find the will to change,
and if I could,
I would stay the same.”

This lyric hits us hard. Generational trauma is real. It can be extremely difficult to break family cycles. So naturally, it can seem impossible at times.

‘This Song Is Called It’s Called What It’s Called’

“The years had passed.
I lost them all,
reach into my head and find
I don’t remember most the time.
Oh, there’s so much I would change.”

Even though it may not always seem like it, time can pass before you know it. It can be easy to get caught up in the negativity. And since you’ve had more time to reflect, it may seem like the better option was right in front of you, the whole time.

‘No Shoes in the Coffee Shop (Or Socks)’

“The question that came next
is if my memories lead to stark regret,
Well then, why would I watch?”

The lyric with the album title. It raises a really good question. Like ‘What’s It Called,’ this song is also about dwelling on the past. For whatever reason, the negative memories can somehow stand out more than the positive ones.


“Got her ashes from the vet today,
I can’t look at them
or find the proper place.”

Nearly every song title on this album is completely irrelevant to the song. So right away, you know this will be a serious song. This is another lyric that hits us hard. Anyone who’s experienced the death of a pet can relate to this song and how difficult it is. R.I.P Betty.

‘Smahccked My Head Awf’

“Didn’t think that I would see your memories fade,
how your eyes don’t light up when you see my face,
Would you remember if I never left?
I should’ve stayed.”
