Up until a few days ago, I have been able to avoid/ignore/completely miss the whole Rebecca Black thing. We canceled our TV awhile back so I missed the news media coverage, and I have gotten into the habit of ignoring most internet memes because I find them to be either annoying or mean spirited.
OK, let’s get the preliminaries out of the way, before I kick the rant into high gear… The song isn’t the worst song I have ever heard. I would rather listen to “Friday” than the neo-nazi classic “The Road To Valhalla”. ANY FUCKING DAY, EVER! (Especially if it was this version of “The Road To Valhalla”). It is an innocuous bit of modern pop fluff. Bigger artists have released material on par with the mediocre that is Rebecca Black. I’ll admit that the lyric is pretty horrible, but so is the lyric to Avril Lavigne’s “My Happy Ending”. And don’t get me started on K-Fed’s “Popozao”. ::shudder::
