A Definitive Ranking Of The Creamiest Bangers The Rubens Have Released
ICYMI The Rubens are about to become the latest Aussie act to make history with a gig at MTV Unplugged Melbourne, the freshly-minted homegrown version of MTV's iconic series of acoustic concerts whose alumni include music legends the likes of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, not to mention true blue icons Gang Of Youths, Amy Shark & DMA's.
We're literally squealing with excitement for Sammuel Margin & co to serve up a hot plate of their trademark smooth rockin' tune nuggets live at St Kilda's The Espy on Feb 28, and to get ourselves even more HYPE for the band's set, we had a good think about which Rubens' tracks that we most want to see given the acoustic makeover treatment on the Unplugged stage.
Check out our definitive ranking of The Rubens' creamiest rock bangers below, and FYI you can go in the running to win tickets to be in the intimate live audience for their Unplugged gig by entering our comp right here.
8. Lay It Down
"Cause it's youuuuuuu"
No, The Rubens, it's you!
The band's 2012 debut single has definitely aged well.
7. Hold Me Back
This up-tempo bop off The Rubens' 2016 album Hoops never fails to get our toes tapping.
Halluejah indeed! Praise be to the music gods for blessing us with this devine rocker, which is just stacked with explosive 'tude.
5. Million Man
Man oh man... is this one catchy little bop. Just go ahead and try not to click your fingers along to that beat, we dare you.
Mmmmmmmmmm.... This smooth soul ballad hits us right in the feels every. damn. time.
Permission to freakout: granted.
3. My Gun
This straight fire tune bullet has continued to hit a bullseye in our hearts since its 2012 release 💗
2. Never Ever (featuring Sarah)
"I think you broke my f*cking heart" is an accurate description of how this song affects us emotionally.
This gorgeous duet between between Sam and Grammy-nominated Melbourne singer Sarah Aarons about a dysfunctional relationship yanks at our heartstrings so damn hard... Fingers crossed we might get to see Sarah make a cameo on the Unplugged stage to belt this one out with the band!
Well look, it topped the triple J Hottest 100 of 2015 for a reason OK? We may need actual surgery to remove this funky bop from our brains because it's been spinning circles in there since back when it was first released!
