Die Antwoord

So, I've watched several of the videos of this... er... "band." I can't, for the life of me, figure out their appeal. It's really plainly awful music. I can't tell if it's supposed to be funny--needless to say, it's not to me. Is this my official geezer point? Where my psyche is so divorced from that of the youth popular culture that I can't even process stuff on the same level? Anyways, curious to hear other folks' opinion of them.

I've never even heard of them.

I checked out their website. It's not the geezer point, dude. They just suck.

god awful. i can't imagine that anyone actually takes this shit seriously?

Yeah, can't remember where I've seen them before, but they do suck. I think their suckiness is achieving some kind of notoriety mainly because they are from South Africa, which has so much compelling weird cultural/racial baggage. If you Wiki them (which I just did) it does kind of make you want to check them out.

P.S hey DC send **edo** an invite to this blog, that dude has taste to spare.

Are you guys kidding me? This shit is great. Fucking hilarious.

Clark Starr said...

c'mon Bill, it's a SCIENTIFIC FACT that they suck.

Good one . . . I thought it was really funny, but I also thought those VEEDUB Volkswagen commercials were funny. Not that I would ever bother watching it again, but it did make me laugh.

Those veedub volkwagen commercials were very funny. These guys remind me of a dutch television show called NEW KIDS >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFFz_Hbrj2A&feature=related
you don't really need to understand dutch to get it. I know it's dumb, but it cracks me up almost every time i see it. especially when they do their little gabber dance.
