Singer Josh Smith enjoys being a dad so much he wrote a song as a tribute to his kids and "all punk rock families out there".
The end result was the recently released single The Greatest by his band, Wollongong punkers Radio Rejects.
"I've always wanted to write a song for my kids and how much I love my kids, and how I love being a parent," the 36-year-old father of three said.
"You can't beat it. I've just worked nine hours, I worked night shift, and I'm going to go home and do home-schooling all day.
"I love it - it's the best job in the world."
The Wollongong-based, self-proclaimed "dadcore" punks formed a little more than two years ago.
"We call ourselves that because it's punk rock for dads basically," the vocalist laughed.
"We've all got full-time jobs and that, and we're all pretty much anywhere between 36 and 40.
"I've always been in bands.
"I started writing some songs, and it just went from there.
"Every year I put on a big bash on for my birthday and a band pulled out, so I said, 'let's play our songs'. We threw together a set and we went from there."
The Greatest is the band's first release through prominent international rock label Golden Robot Records.
The single also has an accompanying video.
"The clip is jam-packed with fun, '90s sitcom cheesiness and of course a heartfelt ending to wrap it all up, once again proving the Radio Rejects are all about having a laugh, good times and rock 'n' roll," Smith said.
The Greatest is also the first single from the group following a line-up change in early 2019.
Smith said the shift has seen the band establish an even greater writing capability, as well as a strong urge to play more shows.
The group is set to record some new material at the end of this month, with plans to release further singles and eventually a full-length album.
"This COVID thing has been a pain, we haven't been able to tour and stuff," the singer said.
"But we've been keeping busy on our Facebook page, doing some fun quarantine videos, and getting our kids involved. It's been fun."
