I was reminded that this exists, and between the vintage MTV bumper and the painfully 90’s production values, it hasn’t aged well, has it? (Sidenote: the album this originates from is considered one of the worst of all time.)
One of the benefits of having one of those newfangled smartphones (with the Android and the app store and what-have-you) is being able to go though my Youtube ‘watch later’ playlist without the videos looking like herky-jerky stop-motion fims. This was on there, and while I can’t claim to be a huge fan of Hayley Williams and co. this is certainly catchy enough, despite being more Avril Lavigne circa ‘Girlfriend’ (cf. those handclaps) than I’d like. (Although there’s a touch of latter-day Kelly Clarkson in there to leaven it somewhat.)
Thing was, for a couple of days afterwards, practically everytime I went out I’d hear this, which was odd; whilst having lunch in the food court, on the bus home…like I said, weird.
