Totally Rad 80s Music Video Of The Day

This, my friends, is what 80s music is all about. And it's not just this awesome video, but the awesome lyrics:

I've given up hope
For the afternoon soaps
And a bottle of cold brew.

That's poetry - I don't care who you are.

Don't ask me why the drummer is dressed as Captain Stubing from "The Love Boat." No idea.

Well this certainly is disappointing. They couldn't have used the real thing?

Be sure to try the "switch view" button for a laugh.


Yes, I'm 12.

A Weird Al classic from Amy.

Say, does anyone have an extra copy of Dark Side of the Moon, The Doors or Who's Next that I could send to the poor fellas down at Rolling Stone? Looks like theirs got stolen, along with all their Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Otis Redding, Elvis Costello, Credence, Beck, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Clash and Grateful Dead records. Poor bastards; they must be really missing those.
