‘What’s Up.’

My kid was asking about this one, actually.  Yes, I’m mildly concerned now about what he’s listening to online now, too. Parents: talk to your kids about Nineties music. Before somebody else does.

    You don’t need to worry until they start asking about Ween.

  • jeboyle says:

    I’ve never heard of this band or Ween, and now I’m worried as hell.

  • Finrod says:

    Such a shame that they only ever made one album– just wait until he starts asking about Blind Melon.

    Just so long as they don’t touch Nirvana…
    .
    Time is a great sifter. Most of the stuff from the 90s was forgettable, and has largely been forgotten.
    But it’s weird hearing remakes of songs that came out when you were an adult. (Especially when they’re objectively worse than the original. And autotuned.)

      Addendum: it has been interesting to see Darius Rucker (AKA Hootie from Hootie and the Blowfish) reinvent himself as a country singer.
      And actually be good at it.
      At a time when that portion of the radio dial is dominated by Pop with a twang. (Feel free to insert a snide comment about Blake Shelton here. Except that most Pop doesn’t rise to his levels of vapid.)
