Whatcha Gonna Do With All That Junk?

Dave Weigel notes, in a throwaway line from the Popmatters Best 50 Albums of 2005 (see number 15), that last year was one where "the Black Eyed Peas learned that they could sell records faster if they sucked harder."

Man, is that ever true. Last month Hua Hsa had a great takedown of the BEP's "My Humps." If you think Hsa exagerates by calling this single "proof that a song can be so bad as to veer toward evil," you probably haven't heard it. And I'd advise against seeking it out, since it gets stuck in your head and makes you want to break things. Grrrr...
