Classify this mashup of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” and Biggie’s “Party and Bullshit” by Hathbanger under “guilty pleasure”. Somehow Biggie’s verses make singing along to Miley’s chorus okay.
If I were getting dumped (and also in a band), the chorus of this song, “Don’t get me wrong, I like you / but I don’t like your band”, would be the least comforting thing I could imagine hearing. Here I am in a perfectly fine, mutually affectionate relationship, and it all turns to garbage. For what, Annie? My band? I thought we had something.
