    Awful Songs That Are Actually Awesome

    For some reason, I love song threads.

    I had to drive to Madison for work last week, and listened to my iPod a good portion of the way since the rental didn't have any satellite radio. I was thinking about some of the songs that I have on there that are technically considered "bad" songs which are actually awesome.

    For example, "Rock You Like a Hurricane" or absolutely anything by The Scorpions. Yes, it's 80s hair rock, but they are pretty fantastic. Also, most music by Flight of the Conchords and ANYTHING by Tenacious D (minus a few things on the soundtrack from the movie) - humor rock isn't traditionally good music, but both bands do a good job musically in addition to being funny.

    Others?

    Colin Hay, the lead singer, did an acoustic version sometime in the 00s that is also really good!

    final countdown



    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
