Horse Was Dead 5 Years Ago.
And so it begins:
We can all agree that re-using songs is frowned upon. There is some fudge room when it comes to crossing sports I guess. Like who gives a shit if you use a song in your mountain bike video that some kayakers used a year earlier. There’s going to be 3 dorks in the whole world who will notice that the crunchy jam in your wannabe Seasons video is the same shitty crunchy jam from a slackline video. But then let’s say Red Bull puts something out that literally 50 million people see across sport lines… we all know that song is “used” regardless of what footage it was attached to first.
So can we all agree that the next bros that use this god damn ‘how you like me now’ song should be exiled from civilization and be set adrift in the middle of the ocean?
All of recorded music and god damn people keep picking Awolnation, Imagine Dragons, and The Heavy. It’s not like you’re clearing music rights for a damn web video anyhow, so steal the use of something- anything else.
And while we’re at it, if Journey comes on at the bar and you start singing along, I don’t care how drunk you are, you suck and I hate you.
