The Australian skate punk legends Bodyjar have released their new single Get Out Of My Head and they are really annoyed!
Get Out Of My Head tackles the irritation the band feels about what we have all been seeing in the news on a daily basis over the last 18 months. In a press statement, lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Cameron Baines explained that Get Out of My Head was written “out of frustration” about “what we see in the papers”.
“[I was] getting sick of hearing stupid opinions and learning to block out a lot of what I was reading online. [It’s got] to the point of actually being able to block out certain parts of some social media, even when they are right In front of me.”
Get Out of My Head is Bodyjar’s third release in 18 months following 2020’s Big Shot, their first single in three years. The band released a split 7? vinyl in February 2021, teaming up with American punk band Sharp/Shock and featured their song Reaction.
It’s been announced this week that Bodyjar will play the upcoming Wallapalooza at the Wallaby Hotel on the Gold Coast in November – Covid restrictions pending. The music industry has taken a hit, with festivals cancelling across the country due to the new Delta variant. The band know this feeling all too well with the recent cancellation of the Sharkfest Musc Festival 2021.
Bodyjar has been belting out skate park anthems since 1990. Their smash 2000 single Not the Same featured in the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3.

Everyone should have a soundtrack playing loudly in the background of their life. I was born moshing to my own beat and have never swayed from my love of music. Spreading my passion through the written word is my soul’s purpose. My punk heart beats loudly with the rhythm of my rock soul. I plan to continue to mosh like no one gives a shit.
