One Question Interviews: Audio Antihero

Jamie (Audio Antihero)

SPB: What is the best pop song of the last 10 years?

Jamie: I'm not deliberately rockist (I swear!) - but since “teen” started appearing in my ages, I've never really liked radio/Top 40 music all that much, so I'm probably not the best person to ask. Firstly I was going to say "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley but that Cee Lo Green guy is the absolute fucking abyss...then I strongly considered "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk and Pharrell as that song is gorgeous and in truth probably is my favourite pop song of the past 10 years. But I'm gonna be a dickhead and choose "Hoeski" by Zack Ryder instead.

As much as I don't particularly like pop music, I do particularly like Pro Wrestling. And pretty much my favourite thing in music is the beautiful sound of frantic desperation...and this is the most desperate god damn pop song I have ever heard. A lower tier (and underrated) WWE wrestler's last ditch effort to make his evil bosses take notice by channeling his Jersey Shore styled gimmick into an absurd parody (?) of a misogynistic break-up song. Foolproof. It even has a rap bridge where he hints at his social network prowess ("like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter - you broke my heart twice, okay, I'll admit I'm bitter"). I think it actually sold quite well, which makes sense given that it's catchy and most WWE fans still think Theory of a Dead Man are a pretty cool band.
