Douche of the Day: Top 40 Edition!

The B-52’s. Would it be possible, do ya think, for every radio station to permanently stop playing the B-52’s? Could we legislate cessation of Love Shack at wedding receptions and Roam during high school graduation photo montages? I realize that wedding reception music — and references thereto — are played out, but I’d like to take things to the next level with this band of sad sacks who were born, it seems, of some secret bet between Michael Stipe and Kurt Loder. I’d rather listen to Belinda Carlisle’s Mad About You on nonstop repeat for a MONTH before hearing that guy say “I’ve got a car and it’s as big as a whale . . . ” one more fuckin’ time.


“And it’s about to SET SAIL!!!!!!”


Right, the car’s about to set sail. We get it.
