Lately, when I”ve been searching the dial on my radio, I’ve been hearing a lot of this song called “Like A G6″ by a group called Far East Movement.  You’ve probably heard it.  Admittedly, it’s got an infectious electro beat, but holy shit are the lyrics inane.

The song is based around the simile of “feelin’ fly like a G6.”

Well, I’m clearly not in the loop because I had no idea what a G6 was.  To me, G6 is a government pay grade.  But that obviously ain’t fly.

So I did some searching and while I’m not positive, I’m pretty sure these guys are referring to the Gulfstream G650 airplane which apparently is some kind of big deal – enough to base a song on at least.

But that’s not even the most confusing part about this song.  Just look at this couplet:

Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard
When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard

What the fuck is slizzard?!!  Once again, I consulted the oracles at Urban Dictionary and “slizzard” is either a term meaning extremely intoxicated or it’s referring to a “very slutty lizard.”  I swear, these groups just invent terms to rhyme with the lines they already have.

Well, that’s enough yammering.  Enjoy this guiltiest of pleasures (and then tell me if these guys don’t remind you of a younger Black Eyed Peas):

Today’s Quickies

Haven’t done this in awhile, so I figured now is the perfect time to start it up again.  Today’s Quickies are a collection of links and blurbs I’ve come across that are rather interesting (to me). 

You know Eminem is trying to make a comeback when you start hearing about controversy in his upcoming tracks.  In his latest, Em has ripped into NFL star Ben Roethlisberger.  The track is titled Despicable and in it, Em says, “I’d rather turn this club into a bar room brawl, get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall.”

There’s a Jersey Shore soundtrack in the works.  And while I’d LOVE to talk about the show itself, I must focus on an upcoming track on the album to get excited about.  Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull on the lead single, I Like It.

The pride of Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee, has released a new album.  And it is awesome. 

I Gotta Feeling, by the Black Eyed Peas, has become the most downloaded song in history.  While I do enjoy the song, I worry about what future generations say about some today’s music. 

Britney Spears recorded Telephone before Lady Gaga and there’s a leak version of it floating around the internet.   But Brits passed on the song after recording the demo.  And as you all know, Gaga picked up the track (she originally wrote it, though) and recorded it with Beyonce.

Here’s a sampling of some interesting stuff going on in the world of metal:

* Anyone who watched the second season of VH1′s Celebrity Rehab is quite familiar with former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler’s drug problems.  That man has done a lottttt of drugs.  So in true rockstar fashion, it makes sense that Adler would release a book detailing his experiences with those drugs.  Titled My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses, Adler’s tell-all is scheduled to be released on June 22.

* Drummer Will Hunt has been chosen to replace Craig Nunenmacher in Black Label Society.  Hunt has most recently worked with Evanescence and Dark New Day.  He likely will continue to pull double duty with Evanescence and BLS.

* Slash recently collaborated with Fergie on a cover of GNR’s “Paradise City” to be included as a bonus track on Slash’s upcoming solo album.  I guess he got a lot of flack for it, so he took to Twitter to defend Fergie’s performance (which can be heard HERE).  He said: “Until now, not too many people have heard Fergie sing rock &  roll but she sings it better (than) most dudes I know. She’s a screamer at heart.”  He then said in an interview that Fergie has talked about wanting to make a rock record outside of the Black Eyed Peas and that he would like to work with her on it.  I actually think Fergie could pull that off, but maybe I’m in the minority in that belief.  There’s no question that she has a really strong voice tailored to dirtier rock and roll as opposed to having her voice drowned in computer effects like on “Boom Boom Pow.”  I’d be at least interested to hear more rock songs from her.

* 10 Years will be entering the studio soon to start work on their third album, Feeding the Wolves.

* Nonpoint have debuted their new song “Miracle.”  Listen to it HERE.

* Ray Davies of The Kinks will be releasing a collection of new versions of old songs.  He said that he would like to talk with Metallica about collaborating on a song.  If you remember, Davies joined Metallica onstage at the 25th Anniversary of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame where they performed “You Really Got Me” and “All Day And All Of The Night.”
