I LOATHE this song. "Life is a highway"? Oh, man. What a profound metaphor! Probably the best since "Some say love, it is a river." Just deep, deep stuff. Pray tell me why life is a highway. Because you "wanna ride it all night long"? That's some next level brilliance right there, you rock 'n' roll wordsmith, you.
OK, my anger is shining through. Look, it takes more than bad lyrics to make the cut for 50 Days of HATE. Many songs have horrible lyrics yet remain inoffensive, too stupid to even take seriously, or even all out likable. In order to really catch my ire, more so than anything else, I have to HATE the sound. Simple and plain. A pure, sensory response. Whether it be an annoying, repetitive chorus, the way a guitar is tuned, or a grating singing voice. For me, this song manages to "succeed" on all levels. In fact, all these years later, I can't imagine anything that could possibly make it any worse.
Judging by my childhood and its timeless inescapability, I must be wrong about this one. Tell me why, won't you? Of course, you don't have to. I'm not restricting your comment topics. Have I made that clear? I'm not sure if I've made that clear. Just to be clear, your comment topics are not restricted. By me. In other words, I am making no attempt to prevent you from discussing any subject you see fit. Below. In the thread. Under the video.
