Is This What Bowie Was Singing About?

Ha ha ha! Fucking geeks! He he he! Yes, yes, it's easy to laugh and feel infinitely more hip than the likes of these squeaky clean kids from 40 years ago. So now that we've got that out of the way, let's find some more ways to knock the Young Americans. It's not hard, just look at 'em. Ha ha ha! Jesus!
Ok, I'll try to act my age and stop being a superior creep. Nah! Actually I've got a confession to make: My 17 year old niece is currently a member or this travelling congregation of wholesomeness, so I should probably watch what I say. But oh well. It's not my kind of thing. You can bet none of my kids would be caught dead standing on stage showing off their pearly whites and singing schmaltzy crap for old folks in Saticoy.
Back then, this was big news. Here were a gaggle of high school and college aged kids projecting a positive image of good old American values in an age of disillusionment and bad hair style choices. Red state America lapped it up. Numerous TV appearances and even a feature film documentary came before they headed into a big time recording studio to make this album with Grammy winning producer and gang vocal Svengali, Anita Kerr.
So sit back and pretend you've never heard Black Sabbath or Public Enemy for a moment and enjoy this ridiculous shit.
