And this year’s winner for Douchebag Theme Song is…
“Don’t Trust Me” by 3OH!3, featuring these winner lyrics. At the risk of sounding like an out-of-touch-with-today’s-youth kinduva guy (you know, someone who might shout “Get off my lawn!” to neighborhood kids), I must voice my hatred of this godawful song.
I was standing around at a Fourth of July party with some friends a couple weeks ago, and this song came on the radio. When I mentioned how much I hated it, a friend said, “Yeah, this is like the douchebag theme song.” Talk about hitting the nail on the head. Yes. That’s it exactly. I wish I’d thought of the phrasing myself.
Look, I have nothing against pop music in general. Like everything, there’s stuff I like and stuff I don’t. I don’t claim to be a music critic; that’s not my forte. But how the hell does this become a hit song? This has got to be one of stupidest and most obnoxious-sounding songs in recent memory. And the radio station plays it 20 times a day.
The refrain about Helen Keller strikes me as something the songwriters thought would be “edgy” and “cool” and that alone would make up for its tackiness. (Look how awesome we are! We can mock Hellen Keller!) Nope. Just tacky and annoying. Rather than telling some chick to “do the Helen Keller” why don’t you just go home and shut up, ya d-bag.
Bad, bad, bad, obnoxious, obnoxious, annoying, stupid song.
Hey, I hold nothing against you if you like this song. But it’s one of those things that goes on my list of things that must … be … destroyed.
