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.

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.

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.

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