"THE BOYS," GIRLS' GENERATION | A common trope in pandemic apocalypse stories is the scene where an infected traveler makes it onto an international flight due to some last minute serendipity just as the area is being quarantined/nuked into oblivion, and the insidious zombie weapons-grade virus escapes to infect the world. Then we all die. Horribly. In the case of "The Boys," the international hit from the Korean-jailbait automaton assembly Girls' Generation, the virus sluiced forth unto the world takes the shape of dated Gwen Stefani drum line "flow" and the fourth-rate Britney production we specialize in stateside. A bit of international fluff for teenagers wouldn't have made this list otherwise, except for the number of "serious music journalists" who will be trying to convince us all that K-pop is going to be a total thing this year. Let's nip this in the bud, shall we? Wait, I don't mean it like that.
