Gen And The Degenerates just keep getting better and better with every song that they release.
Their latest offering is called ‘My Perfect’, and is pretty close to being perfect itself.

“ ‘My Perfect’ is a song about forbidden love, which has always been a big theme in songwriting but has historically been from a straight male narrative, especially in Rock.
