First Hit #1: August 11, 2007
This is the worst song ever recorded.
That’s my personal opinion, of course, guided by the fact that the chorus makes me want to jab a screwdriver into my ear. It’s got the problem that endemic to 2007 – it’s very repetitive – and it’s even got a bit of gratuitous autotune on the backing vocals. The primary issue is that it’s just very annoying, the chorus – which trivializes suicide as well as being incredibly dumb in its own right – grates at the best of time. Once it got ubiquitous, what was annoying became enough to get me seething with rage. Not helping matters is that the whole affair seems to be built on the Christmas section of a preprogrammed Casiotone.
It’s awful, it’s lazy, it’s too repetitive, and it makes me hate absolutely everything I can see.
Not everyone is going to hate this bit of watered down reggae nonsense, but I absolutely loathe this song.
