Tris McCall of The Star-Ledger picks “Sorry” from the new album “2011” as the song of the day. “Seeing the Smithereens today is not altogether different from what it was like to see the band in the ’90s,” says McCall. “Grunge did not change them; a lineup shuffle did not change them. Nothing changed them…”

“Sorry,” their latest, is much like their first.
