Song's been out for almost three months now, it got as high as #2 on the Hot 100 chart (not that anyone on Fark listens to most of that but still).  Token gesture is token.

This reminds me of after 9/11 when Clear Channel pulled damn near every artist who wasn't Lee Greenwood. It's dumb and it helps nobody except a few radio execs feel good about themselves.

We had that added back into our play list two weeks ago before it was taken out again. Yanked the first time because of the Aurora shooting, yanked this time because of Sandy Hook.

FTFA:

At the time of Friday's tragedy, Die Young was reaching about 167 million American radio listeners, TMZ reported. By Monday, that figure had dropped by at least 19 million - "plummeting", according to the New York Post. TMZ claimed it to be the fastest drop in popularity since the Dixie Chicks criticised (sp) George Bush at a London gig in 2003.

So, idiots.

Idiots listen to Top 40 and country radio.

This is why the music industry needs to unionize and require that people who use AutoTune are able to sing in the first place.

I get it, AutoTune is a good tool, it has its uses, and can even have a place in a song done by someone who can sing. I've heard songs I actually like the effect in, but for the most part, it makes me want to kneecap someone.
 
2012-12-19 12:12:18 PM
Totally not defending ke-dollar-ha because the literal crap that emerges from her anus is better than anything that's come out her mouth in recent memory, but this is idiotic.

Pulling a song called "Fly me to the side of an office building" after the September 11 attacks or "Give your unstable son a gun so he can kill twenty grade school children for no reason" after this most recent (as of midday December 19, 2012 anyway) shooting makes sense. Pulling a generic song about kids with guns in schools because that was a totally unheard-of phenomenon before this massacre is stupid. Pulling a song that has nothing to do with people murdering children because it has lyrics someone could mishear and become butthurt about is unnecessarily alarmist PC idiocy.

NO. WRONG. STOP IT. A catchy bubblegum song written two years ago about a screwed up kid shooting another kid for his sneakers has nothing to do with an unbalanced adult walking into a gun and blowing away kindergarteners. Cowering in "sensitivity" for the victims just wraps them in an insulting layer of bubble wrap. Changing your speech in reaction to violence is always wrong.

Despite the whole Fark mindset that music influencing behavior is bullshiat, I had a psychotic student last year tell me that Pumped Up Kicks was his favorite song...he wrote the lyrics over & over in his notebook (from memory), and talked about how he thought it was "inspirational." After his girlfriend dumped him, he fantasized openly in class about "killing the biatch." He'd sing the song to himself while working on projects. He still attends the school, but is getting counseling (because I filled out a mental health evaluation form and gave it to the school shrink). He should be a senior this year, and I hope to hell his grades are OK and he's on track to graduate, because I don't want to be around when he snaps.

JinxofSpades: "Pumped Up Kicks" came on the radio the other day...I found myself cringing a bit, and wondering who thought that was a good idea.


I've hated that POS since I caught some of the lyrics. Who thought .... indeed.

Step zero of any serious plan to break the law is "don't tell anyone who will call the cops on you". If he was fantasizing openly, he wasn't going to do it. He was being an AW.

No, fantasizing openly was a call for help, I'm glad you got him some, but how much are his classmates taunting him? putting an end to that shiat would prevent violence a lot more than forcing him into psych care.

I saw them at Bonnaroo.....there was a ton of violence, people killing others, stealing shoes all kinds of shiat....oh wait no, it was a bunch of people dancing on a giant grass lawn while toking up and having an awesome time. Radiohead came on right after that and it was more partying in the grass with grass and being excellent towards everyone around you.

The Muthaship: fickenchucker: I do that with stupid rap/hip hop/urban culture, too. They see that if it sounds really bad coming from old farts like me, the rest of the world thinks it sounds really bad coming from kids.

Reminds me of the cartoon (Far Side?) where the dad is mowing the lawn with his pants hanging way low, and in the foreground the mom is inside telling their teenage son (also in low slung pants): "He says he'll pull his up when you pull yours up."


Not Far Side. Far Side was funny.

Looks like someone digitally removed Ke$ha from her video and shopped in a much prettier girl in her place.

That song is so saturated in Auto-Tune, T-Pain should sue for royalties.

It may be my fault it didn't come across funny. I didn't do a good job describing it. It was mildly amusing.

FinFangFark: detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: The Muthaship: YOLO is the new No FEAR. It's there to help the rest of us identify morons.

I think No Fear was the immediate followup to Members Only of the late 70's/early 80's. What was there in the 60's/early 70's that helped ID douchetards?


Flower Power?

Just kidding, don't shoot me.
I also liked the ones about how second place is the first loser, and the "It's a ______ thing, you wouldn't understand." (I would personally like to ram anyone who has that on their vehicle.)

Yeah, let's stop playing the pop song that nobody really listens to the lyrics of in the first place, because it might remind someone of the an extremely upsetting event. But hey, let's keep running commentary and interviews with those affected by the event every single second of the day on every single news show.

I farking hate people.

It only takes on turd to ruin the whole punchbowl.

Sorry, but there's nothing cool about making a happy pop song about killing kids. This shiat INSPIRES people that are close to the edge. Sorry if that might cut in on a few minutes of mindless head-nodding during your morning commute. See, I don't care that songs like this exist...they've always existed. They just weren't the lead single from the album, getting grammy nods, and being pushed nonstop on the radio.

Yeah...kid was nutty...other kids would talk a little shiat from time to time, but only because he'd react to even the slightest verbal jab by shouting stuff like, "fark YOU biatch!!!" in the middle of class. I made sure very early on to have a talk with the other students about doing that, and also to let this kid know I was on his side...mainly so that if he ever did shoot up the school I wouldn't be on his target list.
