Guilty Pleasure – Fun., “Some Nights”

fun.Meet AMP’s newest humor-filled feature, “Guilty Pleasure”.

The lyrics are easy to pick up and fascinating to contemplate. Also, the vocals are passionate about whatever the hell they are talking about in the song.

Overall, I would honestly rate this song at:
