NCT 127, whose last mini album 'NCT #127 Limitless' swept music charts worldwide, including those in Finland, Norway, and Peru, have returned. This time they've unveiled 'Cherry Bomb,' their 3rd mini-album and Mark and Tae Yong penned the lyrics for the title track.

We start with the title track, "Cherry Bomb," deemed unfit for broadcast by KBS. Sadly for them, that just makes me want to listen to it more. It's loud, it's dumb, and it has an easy hook.
