On The Wall `Zine (Zine/Blog) (May 17 2013)
“listening to Zero Cool’s most recent album “Hey, Zeus on Heroin” is the equivalent of strapping yourself in and careening down a street at speeds you’ll do best to avoid reaching in any other situation, unless you’re a speed junkie in which case is a totally cool decision.”

Where’s Ernie? (Blog) (Dec 31 2011)
“Their hard hitting, in the pocket punk got the crowd moving early and it was great to see a straight up punk band tear the place apart.”

Absolute Underground (Vol 7-5 Issue 41 – August 2011/September 2011) (Aug 01, 2011)
“Zero Cool was a great opener for the show, and are usually on the scene for most of my articles because they are a great local band and in my opinion a great addition to any punk show… in short Z.C. is a very talented young bunch and shows a lot of 80s punk influence, they have a lot of cool originals, and when they do play a cover it’s something classy – like ‘Six Pack’ (Black Flag) or ‘Sonic Reducer’ (Dead Boys).”

“Zero Cool of course is always a treat to have on the stage, and a guaranteed source of high energy punk rock suss – leaning a little more towards old school 80s hardcore (before the toque and beard / piercings, tattoos era) playing punchy quick stuff along the lines of 7 Seconds / Battalion of Saints, and of course D.O.A. as well.”
