Cobra Starship

Surfacing in 2006 as part of the genius Snakes on a Plane marketing barrage, bandleader Gabe Saporta (formerly of emo outfit Midtown) won the hearts of cult-film buffs and asymmetrically coifed teenyboppers with the flamboyant, deliberately hammy anthem "Bring It (Snakes on a Plane)." Since then, Cobra Starship has enjoyed moderate success and mixed reviews, riding the increasingly thin line between pop-punk and plain old pop, pushing the "punk" element ever firther from the equation with sugary melodies, sleazy synths, and crunky beats. Think of it as club music for people too young to get into clubs — a demographic nailed down officially with Cobra's latest single, "Good Girls Go Bad," which features Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester on guest vocals.
