    Pop Punk? Are we still in the mid 90s?

    Aaaaghhh.
    What we have here, concisely wrapped up in a neat 3 minute parcel, is what is wrong with everything nowadays.

    The music is disposable sugar coated phoney pop punk. It has as much goodness in it as a can of RadBull energy drink with extra “powerWEE”. Pink pop poison designed to swigged down by unquestioning and irritating American kids.

    It’s all retch and no vomit. It goes nowhere, does nothing. Leaves a bad taste, and then straight in the bin.

    What would happen if you took the pop band Steps, and gave their kids guitars. This, this is what will happen.

    What I really want in my life is more product placement. If the music is crap, and there are a million sunglass product placements… is it really a music video. NO, it’s a bloody advert.

    Historians have often asked why the British lost the American War of Independence… whatever the reason, we are now glad we did. Please keep this crap in the colonies.

    Joe Strummer…. The world needs you now, more than ever.

    I really really wanted to hate this.

    I really did.

    Maybe because it sounds so much like the music of my youth? I just can’t.

    I’m sorry.

    Still not as good as those class hits of
    “I only ride park”
    “MtB rider Vs Road Rider” – which contains the immortal line about having balls of steel Vs saving 13grammes because mine are carbon…
    And
    “Ferda Girls”

    ‘I’m [something] and alone, but there’s rubber and chrome

    Broke, and jeez Charlie it’s a bit of throwaway fun not the next version of Beethoven (other composers are available). You sound like my miserable old dad and he’s in his 80’s

    earworm
    noun
    a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person’s mind.

    Nope, afraid not.

    Neither this or baby shark are catchy tunes. Just annoying. Thankfully they are both instantly forgettable as well.

    So true, and I heard that this is the real reason Elsie rides the bus all day, so she can avoid hearing this song.

    I watched it yesterday. enjoyed it (yes, the style is a parody of millenium era boybands). this morning, I have no recollection of the tune whatsoever.

    Definitely not an earworm.

    Baby shark on the other hand, I just read the thread title and I’ve got that in my head again.
