Praise for the Mean Jeans:
“The Jeans boys (Billy Jeans, Jeans Wilder, and Junior Jeans) throw out nearly every trick in the anthem book: soaring guitar solos, swooning Joey Ramone vocals, a sing-along chorus, etc.” – Pitchfork

“Oh the Mean Jeans, I love you so….The Mean Jeans are about to blow up if they haven’t already, and I just wasn’t paying attention.” – Vice

“Portland pop-punk heroes rip, party, toob, hang tuff, spit out a wealth of unshakeable, Ramones-stamped gems.” – SPIN

“But I’m a punk rocker at heart and when a band like Mean Jeans makes punk sound as fresh as it did back when the first couple of Descendents LPs hit the record stores, you just can’t go wrong. Mean Jeans’ new LP On Mars is just about to make everyone feel young again.” – Get Bent

“On Mars feels better written, like the band intentionally set out to make something a little bit poppier, and therefore more memorable.” – Punknews  

“Dirtnap Records seems a perfect fit for these denim-defenders of all things brazen. “Hangin’ Tuff” is the all-purpose accompaniment for bong rips, a bag of chips and hanging with your bros.” – Weekly Tape Deck
