Sunday, November 06, 2011So I of course forgot an important ingredient for the dinner I'm making tonight and had to head back to the grocery store. I turn on the radio, and begin to hear what I suspect is a cover of a song by the Pixies. Then it turns out not to be a cover at all, but rather a "new" song called Aberdeen by some group called "Cage the Elephant."
When I got home I googled "aberdeen pixies ripoff" and got this review. Now I love the Pixies, and think it's great to pay homage to them, such as Nirvana did with "Smells Like Teen Spirit." But man, this song is NOT an homage. Or if it is, Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" is an homage too.
Hey, if you don't believe me, check out this mashup.
Now I will go cook dinner and listen to an actual Pixies album to get the taste of felony out of my skull.
