“We Are Your Friends”? Okay, Okay—Now STFU
DJs! I call for a moratorium on playing Justice Vs Simian's “We Are Your Friends.” Please do not spin it again until at least 2009. This naggingly catchy tune was already played the hell out when I left Seattle in March of this year. Now when you play the track (I still hear it nearly every time I go out), you merely serve to broadcast your own lack of creativity and your willingness to pander to the sheeple. The horse is not only flogged to death; its remains are starting to reek something awful.
For everyone who doesn't know what the hell I'm talking about, check out the video below, and then imagine hearing the music to it every night for the past year+. I dare say that you too would want to put dynamite in any offending DJ's headphones.
