The Bombpops shared the video for their song "Be Sweet".

The track is off their new album "Fear Of Missing Out", which came out a couple of months ago via Fat Wreck Chords. While the music is original, the song’s lyrics were actually written by an all-around rad dude who sadly is no longer with us.

Jen Razavi about the song: “Back in 2009, we were partying in a hotel room with Ray and Brandon Carlisle from Teenage Bottlerocket. There was a guitar there, and Brandon was showing ideas for songs. He wrote all the lyrics to ‘Be Sweet’ on four sheets of hotel paper, and I held onto it.” After Brandon’s untimely passing in 2015, The Bombpops reached out to Ray to seek permission to record the song, which he granted; it was then named “Be Sweet” in tribute to the late drummer, as a nod to his catchphrase. “We didn’t leave one lyric out,” Razavi says. “Those are, word for word, Brandon Carlisle’s lyrics.”
