Last night he sang Jeremy.
Bastard. I love that song. The bass line. The screaming. The fact of turning a tragedy into an anthem. It rawks. Then some hirsute faux-hawked karaoke star assreaps the song for eleventy billion viewers. It’s heresy, I tell ya. On the other hand, this is the lyric fat boy decided to sing:
Clearly I remember pickin on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
Ooh, but we unleashed a lion…
Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess ladys breast…
How can I forget?
And he hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurtin…ooh, dropped wide open
Just like the day…oh, like the day I heard
So, the fact of lyrical boobage and f-bombs does buffer the insult a hair. But I still can’t buy a school shooter song on a bubblegum show. I do not believe it, any more than that one guy singing let’s get it on. They ain’t got no gravitas. Not to mention he sang it like shit. Me in the shower > that guy.
