"I FEEL LIKE DANCIN," ALL TIME LOW | Although this oddly slow and talky song is an affront in and of itself, sounding something like Rivers Cuomo might've nodded off in the middle of writing with his dick in his fist and a Girls' Generation video on the laptop (bonus fact: he actually did co-write it!), the real crime comes from the video, where the pop-punk group try to pass off this wacky pop-culture-referencing sell-out of a song as being a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the idea of "selling out." Knowing what the band are trying to do here — get their product placement money but act like it's a joke, have dancing girls in bikinis, but, you know "dancing girls in bikinis" — makes it even worse. It's like the corporate version of the Christian idea of original sin: we're all born sold-out now. Seriously though, how long do you think it will be before babies start falling out of corporate-tattooed uteri wearing sick Rockstar Energy newborn v-neck onesies? Ten years tops?
