Pop culture's greatest (s)hits

Pop culture's greatest (s)hits

I'm sure there are more, but I know of these classic trends:

1. Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get Retarded

2. Riskay - Smell Yo Dick

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HNY1UkIANc

I guess that hilarious Rebecca Black girl belongs on here, or some of the 70s disco but... anyone have any super-stupid contributions? I mean, more super-stupid than normal.

I don't have anything to contribute except for every Journey song. Otherwise these songs are not familiar to me. What is the point of this? It seems extraneous.

If everything had to have a point, where on earth would liberal-democracy be?
I assume you are merely playing devil's advocate again...

There was some pop-song recently which quotes (mis-quotes) Nietzsche:

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger".

It may be a strong contender.  ;D

1. Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get Retarded

There is worse where that came from:

Black Eyed Peas: My Humps

When I first heard this song I thought it was a parody, but nope, being played unironically across the world:

Trinidad James: All Gold Everything

But my real contribution to this thread is:

Memphis Blac featuring Smokahontas Jones: Got Dat Work

Edit: Almost forgot, an almost perfect snapshot of decline:

Miley Cyrus: We Cant Stop

Perfect! The horror, the horror...

Probably some from metal, too:

* Pantera - Walk

* Ghost - anything

* Opeth - anything

* nu-Black - anything

* Bullet for My Valentine

etc etc

This gave me a laugh. I agree.

Asking if there was a point was stupid of me. I meant, "what sort of constructive result can we expect from this venture?" If the point is to remind ourselves how much smarter we are than most people, then, we've accomplished that immediately and any further contributions are cruel or masturbatory.

Not that I'm condemning cruelty or masturbation. Let's just be aware of how much of a pompous circle jerk this is.

Relax man, life isnt a mission checklist. Not everything needs an immediate constructive result. No pomposity that I can detect here either, perhaps you mean hubris? No need to be that guy. I am sure we are all contrarians to a degree, but this kind of `critical` reflection is just deconstruction. I say it a lot but people are not robots!

The point would be to demonstrate decline anyway, not to crow over our smartness. I dont think this stuff is made by stupid people (well, a couple). It is evil and a symptom of bad times. Know your enemy. Also some disparate threads can reveal themselves in this way.

That's me,  the party pooper.

I would indicate that you shouldn't need to study trash if you spend enough time studying treasure. The difference makes itself obvious.

I find this kind of behavior a little more acceptable "IRL". Forum writing is premeditated.

If one doesn't have the forethought to acknowledge their written opinions and tastes are skewed (if not laughably insignificant) they might be out of touch. Shitting on the work of others - without the accompaniment of evenhanded, purposeful criticism - is unequivocally malevolent. A waste.

Of course, forum conduct needn't always be serious.
