This isn't the very worst, but:




I mean, why would you choose that? why something so third-rate?

Fuck's sake!

I'm not sure whether this was a serious inclusion:



it's a crock of shit whatever the intention was, and without a doubt the worst thing I've heard in any list so far this year.

That won't be beaten. I think it's meant to be funny.

I'm all for people picking modern music, and tend to throw in one or two bits of hip techno or hip-hop stuff myself.

This, though, is how not to do it:

I see more value in the Biebknot and Rudimental than the original song, that was beyond safe. At least the others are risky and imaginative choices.

Chart music always gets a rough ride on this board and in the BCB cup, I sense snobbery.

This song gets a kicking from Penk yet the same list had some hoary old croaking from Family on it that passes without a murmur

Songs like this are undeniable, they are massive cross over hits for a reason, they are joyous and energetic.

There is better stuff on the Rudimental album though, Mrs Copehead is a fan

His voice is a bit marmite, but at least it is different

I seem to be edging Penk's way :?

Ah, it wouldn't be the BCB Cup without Cophead spouting utter horseshit.

You clearly have not bothered to read my other comments, otherwise you would have noticed that I wrote of the same list that "Family are fodder for the argument that every era has had its fair share of shite" and indeed that "'Pumped Up Kicks' is just great pop music".

I chose to post the Rudimental song here because it is fucking horrible. The vocal line sounds like it was written and performed by a computer, the music is cynical and derivative, and drum and bass is probably the least appealing of all the myriad subgenres of "electronic" anyway.

You are right I didn't read that, but I can't let that stop me from ranting can I?

I'd never get one off if I had read everything relevant.

Anyway I apologise, a bit.

And I agree that Pumped up Kicks is great modern pop music, it is a real 100% solid gold ear worm, I can't stop humming it for about an hour after every time Mrs Copehead plays it.

So it appears that the value of the Rudimental song is all we disagree on, I love drum and bass.

But you are right it is an entirely cynical attempt to cross D&B into the mainstream much like a lot of Dizzee Rascals recent career, can't help loving it, it was this Summer's Bonkers.

It makes me smile.
Beyond that, I need say no more.
It doesn't make you. Not my problem, buckaroo.
You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.

I knew them when I was college, friends of friends, they were at Napier College and we drank in their Union as it was just over the road from our house.

They were a great live band and a really joyous act.

I love that whole VU crossed with the Shangri Las schtick and they did it better than everyone else bar the JAMC, mainly because they had a fantastic female singer

I love them unreservedly and they will always be in my all time top 10 but I accept that is mainly because I was there and saw them grow

But I honestly think someone who can't love guileless, joyful, noisy music like that and bounce around the room to it is lacking something basic

Moddie is a top guy but he has a real blind spot for simple pleasures like this
