Song of the Day: The Libertines - Can't Stand Me Now

English punk band, The Libertines have had a rocky career. Not because of talent of course, they are some of the greatest punk rockers around, it's one of their best members that hurts em though. Pete Doherty, a talented co-frontman, and perpetual moron, who always seems to be in some sort of legal trouble. Take for example last December, when he was in court for a driving offense. As he was leaving the court, a bag of cocaine fell out of his pocket. He literally brought cocaine into a court. Not the smartest idea. Regardless of his troubles though, when he is not driving his bands apart, he is a talented musical mind. After a couples years on hiatus, the band is planning on touring this summer, so look for that. But, with no promise of new material, you also should check out their two great albums, Up the Bracket, and the self titled The Libertines. Todays song of the day is the first track off their second album, and one of their most popular. Enjoy.
