reason #4,575 to hate radio
KNDD – “Seattle’s Original Alternative” – while driving to work this morning:
Idiot DJ: “And that was ‘From The Five Boroughs’ from the Beastie Boys – you know, there’s going to be a special edition when this one sells out, it’s going to be called ‘From The Six Boroughs’ and the sixth borough will be Tacoma.”
Me: “OH MY FUCKING GOD! YOU FUCKING WISH TACOMA WAS A CITY, MUCH LESS A BOROUGH! AND DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT THE FUCK A BOROUGH IS, YOU MORON!”
I felt much better.
For the record, I don’t know whether I should buy this Beasties record or not. Thought they were cool on Letterman but didn’t really see a lot of evolution in the sound. I dig the single, though, and grabbed it on iTunes this morning (along with “Hey Ya” by the Supersuckers, which I listened to six times in a row, along with some Social D and a track from Eddie Spaghetti’s solo album, The Sauce[his cover of the Alabama Three’s “Peace In The Valley”]). Back to the Beasties – anyone who samples “Sonic Reducer” is all right with me (well, as long as your last name isn’t Lavinge or Durst).
