This video is kind of weird, just fyi.

So I mentioned a couple Wednesdays ago that I will often like the entirety of something because I really like one small part of it. I really strong example of this phenomenon is today’s song. This particular video is actually a re-recording of Bad Religion’s original done with German punk artist Campino, and this is due to the fact that I had trouble finding a version of this song that kept the part I liked more or less intact. And that part? The ending. This song kind of doesn’t have a lot going for it for most of the song. It has lots of anthemic Fa-fa’ing, and a pair of fair to middling verses with a vaguely anti-establishment message, but then the second verse ends and the long-building ending starts, climaxing in the a capella finale. It’s a powerful effect, and one that makes me overlook the rest of the song’s flaws. It’s a fun tune, and a good start to another week.

    Brute Force and Ignorance are our watch words and this is our victory dance! This song goes out to the crew of the good ship Remora: Garoon, Phineas, Tin, Stella, Skulder and the fine men of the First Wolfheimian Fleet.
