The pairing of Upset, the band anchored by ex-Vivian Girl Ali Koehler and ex-Hole drummer Patty Schemel, with the blistering 7 Seconds bro-takedown “Not Just Boys Fun” is so perfect and incredible it’s odd that it didn’t happen sooner. Not only do its lyrics sound more natural and forceful coming from Koehler than they did even from Kevin Seconds, but Upset’s knack for raw power gives the song a potency that makes the original sound mannered by comparison.
