Freedom! Liberty! RC KOUBA!!!

June 2nd, 2010 by Kevin Murphy · 23 Comments

Now that we’re in that groggy, mosquito-infested nightless fever-dream between Memorial Day and Independence Day, isn’t it time to watch a doughy middle-aged guy offer his tribute to Liberty, freedom, faith, hope, charity and other things?
Of course it is.  Here’s RC Kouba with Lady Liberty.

Some of you may have heard that Casablanca will be our next RiffTrax (it comes out on Tuesday.)   What some of you might not know is that back in 8th grade, my friend Andrew wrote a song about the exotic destination that the movie is set in: Morocco. I would like to share with [...]

Et tu, Lady Gaga?

March 27th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 60 Comments

I was quite pleased when Mike informed me today that Lady Gaga was not the one hit wonder we at RiffTrax had her pegged for.  Turns out that our Bad Song of the Year winner had another hit before Poker Face, “Just Dance.”  It has over 47 million youtube views, so I’m probably not telling [...]

Bad Song of the Year

December 31st, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 75 Comments

it’s a daunting task, chasing down a song that will plainly and commonly be considered bad by peoples of all cultures, ages, races, sexes and nationalities.  I find I must leave my own eclecticisms behind – e.g. my affection for the assless be-underpanted idiocy of Devendra Banhart – but I must also keep my bile [...]

BAD SONG OF THE WEEK*: I Kissed a Girl.

September 15th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 35 Comments

It started with my niece Laurel, and now all of my nieces and nephews are using their aural youthiness to identify the songs which most compel them to perceive the world as a horrible place.  This week’s offering:
KATY PERRY: I Kissed a Girl
 

It was inevitable that this song would hit the BSOtW list eventually; [...]

BAD SONG OF THE WEEK: “Lonely”

August 24th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 23 Comments

Once again, we comb the airwaves to bring you the music you don’t want to hear. This week:
AKON: Lonely

Yo…all. This one goes out to all my players out there, who sleep too heavily to hear their girlfriends banging around the loft, packing all their belongings and vacating the premises; and who then drown their [...]

BAD SONG OF THE WEEK: Deluxe Edition Volume 1

August 6th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 61 Comments

It was easy to focus on Devendra Banhart as bad artist of the week; his songs could fill out an entire calendar. But to pick one single song as our week’s portion of yuck was excruciating. Witness for example one of his signature songs, performed here on Jools Holland’s show. Enjoy the [...]

“Bad Song of the Week” has been away for several, on summer vacation from bleeding ears. We now bring it back as my bad-savvy niece Laurel (and now several of you) continue to supply us with what’s the worst of the latest and the latest of the worst. This week:

RAY J (Featuring Yung [...]

Bad Song of the Week

Thanks again to my niece Laurel, who combs the airwaves to find the juiciest musical nits. Apologies in advance for the ad accompanying the video. This week:
Gretchen Wilson: REDNECK WOMAN
 

Believe me when I say I don’t look down on Gretchen Wilson, primarily because if I did she might hit me with her baby [...]

Bad Song of the Week

June 9th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 27 Comments

Once again, My niece Laurel has kept me posted on the very worst in popular music. This week:
Jibbs: Chain Hang Low

The term “shawty” takes on a new connotation in this video by a rapper whose name reminds one of a nineteenth-century English butler. As far as I can gather, the song involves [...]
