Adam WarRock “STOP” (Free Download)
Yeah,I remade a Miley Cyrus song, which for those keeping track, isn’t the first time.
I’ve always kinda thought “We Can’t Stop” was sort of a sad song, which makes the video for it even more ironically…funny? Is funny the word? I don’t know. It sounds like a song by a bunch of zombies basically being forced to party, way past the point of it being enjoyable. To the point it’s like, some kind of sick, twisted torture. I’m kind of a person who doesn’t love partying; or rather, my anxieties and personal sensibilities makes partying at a certain point torture, where I have to run away and go hide at home and just be by myself. So I sort of ran with that notion, and made a party song for people who don’t really like partying, but still kind of have to act like they do. Does that make sense?
I’m on record as being a fan of Miley Cyrus, and for the record, I think Bangerz is a great album (except for “4x4,” which is atrocious, and “SMS (Bangerz),” which is also horrible). I don’t get jumping on board the hate train, when she is honestly on a fascinating collision course of “what-you-expect pop sensibility” while also just doing everything in direct contradiction to people telling her they know “what’s better for her,” or “what she SHOULD do.” I kind of enjoy that. And for the record, I think she makes pretty dope music. If you can’t tell by now, I’m obviously a HUGE fan of pretty conventional pop music.
I also made the remark on twitter that watching her throw middle fingers up at the rate she’s been going is basically like watching a pop cultural supervillain origin story. I have no doubt that this all ends with her donning some kind of metal mask and building a castle, and slowly plots taking out every critic and naysayer with some kind of Miley Doombot. And to be perfectly honest, I kinda love that. Do your thing Miley.
I have a new album coming out November 5. It has a lot of incredible guests on it, including people like MC Frontalot, Louis Logic, and an introduction from the amazing James Urbaniak. I hope you’ll buy it. Because, uh, I got bills to pay!
