Song of the day: IT Boys – Guys Don't Like Me
We think this debut single from LA-based pop-rockers IT Boys is a daring move. We’d never heard guys singing about being so hot that other guys don’t like them. In fact, we’re not even sure it’s a widespread problem in reality. It’s more the sort of thing that we’d be expecting bitchy teenage girls (or Avril Lavigne who seems to think she’s a bitchy teenage girl) to be singing about.

They’ve been making a name for themselves in the States, having toured for most of 2011 and their video has been on heavy rotation on MTV US. They’re planning an onslaught in the UK this year and the band are currently
Here’s the video: Watch out for the girl at 1:13. Then realise that everyone at that party is drinking out of empty cups! That’s some 21st Century Rock N Roll right there, kids!
Finally, when’s their record out? Guys Don’t Like Me gets its UK release on 12th March.
