The 14-song album You Can't Keep a Good Band Down showcases these four Swedish punkers creatively displaying a mix of infectious grooves, '50s influence, anti-establishment energy, and much more. The harmonies and melodies are remarkable for a punk act, and the Swedish accent makes for a nice angle on the vocals. Lyrically, the band expresses their anarchist views, although in a way that is honest and open as opposed to the typical "your system sucks" manner that is popular amongst punk bands. Randy also has songs telling silly stories, such as their experience with The Exorcist, a crazy fan, or fun with their friends. All of this is done with really nice beats, and music that is very danceable. With You Can't Keep a Good Band Down, Randy seems to have made a very successful album that will most likely be overlooked by many, but its their loss, as all the pieces truly are in place.
