Don VanCleave, President of the Coalition of Independent Music Stores, says Beitthemeans is "the best southern punk rock band since Lynyrd Skynyrd." They don't really echo a certain decade and don't follow trends. They consistently turn out one energetic, powerful show after another. Shotgun Radio, the band's first full-length record, expresses ferocity, empathy, emotion, and rage all at once; hard edge rock that has not lost its taste for melody and good lyrics.

Most recently returning from the Florida Music Festival where they played for music industry reps and scouts, the Orlando City Beat described their perfomance..."Honkin', slashin', twangy, swaggering, this band can go from a supercharged Kings of Leon to a redneck Mot?ad with large layers of guitars that rise and crash with authority."
