Yeah, what's with the hate? The Pretty Reckless are a real band, not a "marketing gimmick." Taylor Momsen is a very talented singer and songwriter who wants to make a statement. What does it matter that she "was on a dumb TV show"... which was actually pretty good, but to each their own. 'Gossip Girl' is where I first noticed Taylor and got interested in her music long before anything was even released officially. What does it matter that her bandmates are "over twice her age?" It's just a number! They weren't simply put together by some producer. They've been together in the current lineup since 2010/2011. That's already a pretty long time and they've just released their third album and have constantly evolved as a band and refined their sound. They are very successful, too, and have built up a reputation in the music business and an impressive fanbase to go with it. Heck, even someone as renowned as guitar great Warren Haynes doesn't consider himself to good to be a guest on their current album 'Who You Selling For' and Taylor performed with Billy Gibbons and Joan Jett in the past. That's rock 'n' roll royalty right there! If you don't like the band's music, that's fine. Tastes differ. That said, discounting a legitimate band featuring an excellent lead singer as "a bunch of session musicians" coupled with a talentless "teenage raccoon girl" goes way to far and illustrates music snobbery.

Terrible music and band (if you can call them that). LPs will be going for .01 cent in due time...

I was unlucky enough to have to sit through this band as an opening act about a year & 1/2 ago.

Way too reliant on a really standard over the top "sexy" image rather than on actually rocking.
I mean, it's 1000% obvious that the whole thing was cooked up by a bunch of middle-aged dorks in a board room.
The music doesn't sound honest at all, and it isn't.
So here you have this teenage raccoon girl who can sing (in a really standard and boring way that old people who listen to the radio think "rocks") showing off tits & ass, while a bunch of session musicians over twice her age playing really generic "hard rock" back her up on stage while trying not to draw attention to themselves.

I honestly don't know who this band would actually appeal to.
It's clearly all a marketing gimmick (the girl was on a dumb TV show after all), but a gimmick directed at whom exactly????

meh, I call bullshit on this whole band, but at least I got to stare up her skirt for 45 minutes, right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
