Huh? No, just in the video it's a car, when it's actually a plane... regardless it's hardly the worst thing about it


Well I agree with that.
‘Virtue signalling’ wasn’t really a thing then, but...

I just wonder if you have an issue with every pop star that’s ever looked at a VW Beetle?

I like BB a lot but I really don’t need to hear him sing. He’s a decent raconteur.


My only 'issue' is that he thinks a Mitsubishi Zero is a car when its actually a plane. It was a gentle comment about how his witticisms are shit. Jeez.

Be patient with Deebank. He's not the brightest lamp in the street :)

The band name was already putting me off. The screen grab is also foreboding.

I feel like it will start raining sewage indoors if I dare click.

I don’t mind them at all (albeit in small doses), there’s a pitch-black streak of humour right through ‘em. My pick - Mop Top.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

God that Sleaford Mods ''song''. Yet some Tarquin/Henrietta In the Guardian will tell us they're The Voice Of Austerity Britain©. Talk about the bigotry of low expectations. Don't even get me started on that Bragg effort on the previous page. Cunts!

Good lad.




(song starts around 6:30 - the stuff before is moderately interesting)

To be fair that's just another shoddy Stones live performance to add to a long list. Jagger's body spasms makes even dad dancing Bryan Ferry look like Fred Astaire.

I believe we may have to instruct you in the way that songs are supposed to rhyme and scan in popular music hence:


I look like Robert De Niro, I drive a Mitsubishi Zero


Rhymes and scans whereas the more correct, in terms of Mitsubishi automobile output:

I look like Robert De Niro, I drive a Mitsubishi Lancer


Doesn't.

I believe the choice was made based on the rhyme more than anything else, perhaps he could have gone with Mitsubishi Evo, that nearly rhymes, I will tweet him and tell him to try that next time out.

Also I don't believe he really had an uncle who played for Red Star Belgrade, who were a communist not fascist football team, the Red Star being a communist symbol, from Wikipedia:

In February 1945, during World War II, a group of young men, active players, students and members of the Serbian United Antifascist Youth League, decided to form a Youth Physical Culture Society, that was to become Red Star Belgrade on 4 March


I hope this helps and isn't too condescending, one never knows.

To be fair, New Order made some great songs. They just couldn't play them.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Age and experience didn't really work in their favour, either.
