Taylor Swift Releases Max Martin-Produced "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"

There was a time when Max Martin producing chart-topping — or at least Top 10-destined — smashes wasn't quite a monthly occurrence. But that time is not now, especially now that Max and his frequent partner in crime Shellback are behind Taylor Swift's surprisingly un-country, un-apologetically pop-leaning "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," a single that serves as the first offering from upcoming LP Red.

All in all, "We Are Never..." is harmless fun. And it's definitely the first Taylor Swift song that doesn't make me want to smash an acoustic guitar over her kneecaps upon first listen. Then again, give it a month, when this shit is playing four times an hour across every radio format on the air.

Then I'll get to swinging a guitar...but it'll be with an electric guitar.

    This track needs a push-like an Alias remix!

    Or something along the lines of Katrina and the Wave's, I'm Not Crying.

    I like a little meat with my potatoes!!

    This sounds like Avril Lavigne trying to cover Madonna's "Don't Tell Me".
