“There is a renaissance of guitar-driven music happening in mainstream right now, and this song has been on the front line, kicking down the door,” Machine Gun Kelly says of “bloody valentine”, from his fifth album Tickets to My Downfall, produced by blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Sounding much more like Barker’s band than the hip-hop MGK is known for (and perhaps inspired by MGK’s turn as Tommy Lee in last year’s Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt), this is the track that birthed their pop-punk partnership. “This song was the reason why Travis and I decided to do the album. It was the first one we recorded.” ALT CTRL is Apple Music’s home for left-of-centre rock songs and is updated all the time.
