Listening Post



Understand something -- Flo Rida's Low is bested only by that fucking ridiculous Soulja Boy song in the tight race for "Worst Piece-of-Shit Currently Infecting the Airwaves."

That's why it seriously says something about the awesome might of Travis Barker that he can actually make it cool.

This remix is just unreal.

It reminds me of the last truly impressive rock remix of a popular hip-hop song...



(By the way, Barker may be a bad-ass, but even he couldn't make Soulja Boy worth a crap; his remix does nothing to save that god-awful Crank That song.)

I must say that living in the cultural wasteland of Iowa has its perks in that I have never heard that Soulja Boy song. (I am sure it is played on one of the pop stations that turned everyone from the ages of 13-22 into zombies) Hell, the only thing I think of when I see his name is Sister Souljah. Whatever happened to Sister anyways? Did she get a sex change operation and sell out to become Soulja Boy? Is Soulja Boy her kid? And does any rapper know how to freaking spell English? Wake me when its spring.

That Travis Barker remix has been posted everywhere! And I listen to it every time...

And I agree, even though his remix of Crank That is better, it is still awful.

Barker, a bad ass? He is one cool mutha of a drummer, though.

Josh Freese can kick Barker's ass. //c

Yeah, and Buddy Rich could've stomped them both at the same time. I said Barker was good -- I didn't say he was the best there is.

I agree. BR was the shit. I'm sure you've seen this solo, before. Just in case though.
