Jay Parade is a three piece pop punk band from Charleston, WV. The band consists of Dave Gunnoe (Guitar/Vocals), Josh Connelly (Bass/Vocals) and Jonathan Shank (Drums).
“Three Cheers for a Goner” is the band’s single we’re going to focus on today. On this release, the band comments:
“Three Cheers for a Goner is about an old friend who died from a drug overdose. It’s about the pressures in society that can drive people to use hard drugs and how difficult it can be to recover. The song is an exploration of the hopelessness one can feel with drug use from an outside perspective.”
