"Today is the day that goes in history of stayville": Fans are proud of Stray Kids newest feat

As the group was announced as one of the emerging global leaders of the fourth-generation K-pop scene, they mentioned the qualities of their song God's Menu and other achievements. Meanwhile, STAYs also expressed their satisfaction as the day was filled with several exciting news pieces, including Hyunjin's appointment as Versace's eighth global ambassador, Seungmin's OST award, Changbin's Samsung ad, and a collaboration announcement.

Furthermore, the group is set to headline Lollapalooza Paris tomorrow, adding to the excitement. All of these news pieces arrived on the same day, making July 20, 2023, a memorable day in the group's history.

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone described the group as:

"The best evidence that Stray Kids are one of the global leaders in fourth generation K-pop. ? "God's Menu," the perfected vision of their noisy, explosive trap-pop. The song kicks off with a hard-as-hell verse from Changbin, who alongside Bang Chan and Han make up the boy group's writing and production sub-unit 3RACHA."

The outlet continued:

"From there, the band's electric bravado is amplified by the best baritone in the biz, Felix, as he sings, "Cookin' like a chef/I'm a five-star Michelin" with the same heft as an Eighties goth-punk crooner. With "God's Menu," Stray Kids take the bad-boy concept and set it aflame."

Needless to say, fans are proud of the group's recent endeavors and wish them more success.
