10. All in White (What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?, 2011)

“An amazing song, makes me cry every time I hear it. Suck a tune, always gets me out of depression, the vocals are so genuine.”

9. If You Wanna (What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?, 2011)

“The lyrics are simple but effective, the melody is exciting and I don’t know anyone who can resist getting up to rave to this song.”

8. Norgaard (What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?, 2011)

“No doubt the best song by them! Love the backstory, just makes you enjoy the song even more. They really were stellar in this one!”


7. Aftershave Ocean (Come of Age, 2012)

“You know when a guy comes back to his girls place stinking of aftershave and she pretends she doesn’t know why he’s come back smelling that way and would much rather ignore his infidelities and continue the false relationship. The guy subconsciously wants her to know so he masks the aromas from the other women with more and more aftershave to make it obvious without having to say anything to her face. She ignores it and happily lies to herself. Keeping him in this aftershave ocean.”

6. Melody Calling (Melody Calling, 2013)

“There is something really special about this one! I can’t imagine all the work you must have put into it. As another musician, I can say that your music touches something that most don’t these days. Keep up the excellent work!”

5. Teenage Icon (Come of Age, 2012)

“This song is #14 on Rolling stone magazine’s list of the 50 best songs of 2012. some straight ahead, fast hard rock with a Punk edge from these relative newcomers who are Two or Three albums into their musical journey.”

4. Bad Mood (Come of Age, 2012)

“Bad Mood, the A side, has quickly become one of my favourite songs with it’s high energy, blazing guitar and upbeat tempo. The B side, Living Out Your Dreams Backwards is a much slower almost sixties style song. If you know the song Simon Diamond from The Coral’s first album, it’s got that same kind of tone – acoustic guitar, vocals that aren’t rocky at all, and plenty of those notes that just seem “off”, but not in a bad way, they just add a bit off depth to the song. It’s a nice song, but I’ll mostly be playing Bad Mood. It’s just so high octane.”

3. I Always Knew (Come of Age, 2012)

“This song is immensely powerful, it makes me want to fall in love over and over again. Really stands out on this record, perfect for when you’re in love!”

2. Denial (English Graffiti, 2015)

“The start of the chorus reminds of Calfornia Dreamin’ by Mamas and Papas. Great Song!! Justin’s acoustic version sounds sweet too”

Combat Sports by The Vaccines Reviews and Tracks - Metacritic

1. Dream Lover (English Graffiti, 2015)

“This song is godly, listen to it on repeat for hours like honestly my favorite song by them. The chords and the melody sound great. it sounds like it was written in the 1960s and then the Vaccines found it and kicked it up a notch.”
