Arriving home from work, I figure a few bowls of Maggi Noodles and some moments alone with the boob tizzube are in order. Video Hits Uncut (uncut? since when did music videos feature anything that needed cutting?) is on, so I figure it’s about time I reacquainted myself with what’s cool today.
Liberty X, Nelly and JT, Macy Gray… *yawn*
Oh wait, check it out. Guttermouth, one of the fuck-you punk bands I idolized as a kid. They were always so cool; swearing a stuff… making fun of vegetarians and feminists and just… swearing… and stuff. Oh. They’re on Video Hits. That can’t be good. They’re squished between a techno-club-anthem and a song about flowers. Wow, this song has no swear words in it at all. Mark “Mercury” Adkins appears to be singing about a girl he liked in high school. They’ve really, really changed. No fun, no bawdiness, no crudity, no swearing. No wonder I haven’t heard anything about these guys since Musical Monkey… they suck.
Much as I might have fooled myself into believing otherwise as a kid (and also through highschool), punk is dead. Oh well.
