My friend Steven Crowder (with an assist from Chris Loesch) is back with another classic YouTube rap. I'm playing this one while reading Obama's budget: Yeah, lookin' at the country, It's not what I intended Gotta start to make a change, Before you're a Neverending Story of a failed nation run straight out of luck...

Awwwwwwww yeah. Michael Moore isn't the only one cashing in on the increasingly violent, deadly Occupy Wall Street Movement. He's selling books. Rappyer Jay Z's hawking t-shirts. And he's got no plans to redistribute the wealth: Jay-Z has the support of fellow 1 percenter-posing-as-99 percenter Russell Simmons. $22 a pop. Come on, cough it up,... Read More
I'll have my say about the loser Alinsky-ite slumber party that took over the Brooklyn Bridge later today. For now, I'm keeping it positive on this gorgeous Sunday afternoon. There are signs of hope out there in Hollyweird that punks can and do grow up. Here's the trailer for "The Other F Word" -- an... Read More
Teach Me How to Dougie! One of the members of the rap group that came up with the 2010 one-hit wonder "Teach Me How to Dougie" died in a drive-by shooting this weekend. He went by the moniker "M-Bone." The First Lady Michelle Obama was recently seen doing the Dougie at a "Let's Move" event... Read More
I don't care about Adam Lambert's sexuality. What he did at the American Music Awards was just gross. More to the point: It was certainly not "music" or "entertainment." It sounded like kittens being boiled in hot oil while a kindergarten class pounded on '80s synthesizers and a Rock Band drum set. Egad, this is... Read More
Alfonzo Rachel and friends rap the Left's victicrats from South Central to the White House:
Loser.
Kanye West -- you know, the moron who suffered a Bush Derangement Syndrome attack in the middle of a Hurricane Katrina national telethon -- made a fool of himself again tonight. Aggrieved that country singer Taylor Swift beat out pop diva Beyonce for an MTV Video Music Award, he pounced on stage, ripped the microphone... Read More
The guitar legend has passed away at 94. God bless him.
"No more white lies, my president is black!"
Here's the Hollywood inaugural celebration you didn't see splashed all over TV: Rappers Young Jeezy and Jay-Z crazily cursing their heads off and screaming "Nigga" this and "Nigga" that as a crowd goes wild to Jeezy's national anthem: "My President Is Black." I wrote about the race-based song after Election Day here. Jay-Z adapted the... Read More
'Cuda vs. Luda.
It's the 'Cuda vs. Luda. Sarah Palin traveled to Georgia to help GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss in his tight re-election bid. The runoff's tomorrow. Thousands turned out for her today. Let there be no doubt: Palinmania lives. Meanwhile, Democrat challenger Jim Martin fought back with, um, rapper Ludacris, who will perform for him at a... Read More
Have you heard about Rex? Wow:
This one's for you.
A judge with a truly wicked sense of humor has been sentencing noise violators to listen to Barry Manilow for an hour as a civil penalty: Go ahead and leave your nominees for best torture music. On Michael Graham's Boston talk show this morning, I nominated anything by REO Speedwagon and the Pokemon theme song... Read More
"President of the bigots," indeed.
There is a new national slogan/anthem catching on among America's youth. It's a popular rap song, a t-shirt, and a taunting chant. It is this: "MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK." Go ahead and Google it. They're blasting it on the streets of Chicago, saying it like a prayer in Durham, singing it on campus, and putting... Read More
Sing with me.
Just stick up your chin and grin and say... Ok, one for the pessimists...
Walk our way.
Well, whaddya know? Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is a lifelong Republican who opposes Obama. The Boston Herald reports: Crank up your lunchtime video -- the Guitar Hero version of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way:" And another: Guess you know what I want for Christmas! (Hat tip - LaShawn Barber)
Bad rap.
Well, I have a headache after listening to the new rap song, "Kill Bill O'Reilly." How out of date are the rappers who composed this masterpiece? They saw fit to include me in their broadside despite the fact that I quit the show 10 months ago. Anyway, if you're a masochist and want to give... Read More
Warner Music Group's money grab.
Scroll down for updates... How would you like to be forced to pay a "music tax" bundled into your monthly fee for internet service? That's what the entertainment industry is up to--and Congress needs to hear from you. The plan is objectionable on both economic and social conservative grounds. Desperate record companies can't compete in... Read More
Awww yeah. Plus: An 8-year-old plays the blues.
Reader Ronald sent in my nominee for music video of the day. I think you will love it. I was at the train station recently and saw two young clowns beclowning themselves, shuffling around with their pants around their knees trying to look cool. It took all my strength not to say exactly what this... Read More
Leader of the Band.
Singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg died of prostate cancer today. He was 56. There's a message from his family on his website. R.I.P.: One more:
"Age Ain't Nothing But A Number."
I first wrote about R&B thug R. Kelly in 2003, when he was released on bail after being charged with 21 counts of statutory rape and child pornography. The wheels of justice grind slowly. Four years later, accused pedophile R. Kelly is still roaming around free on a new concert tour--but he has yet to... Read More
Zzzzzzzz.
Egad. Check out the Grammy nominees for best spoken word album of the year announced today. Liberal bias at the Grammys? Nawwww:
Yo!
I've often wondered what it would take for MTV to clean up its act. Now, we know. The aging music network wants Middle Eastern eyeballs, and it'll do anything to cater to its audience--including toning down raunchy content and covering up scantily-clad hostesses. If it were America, the libs in charge of MTV would consider... Read More
Update: A photo from the funeral via Yahoo! News... *** The NAACP is holding a funeral today for the n-word in Detroit: But a quick visit to the Billboard Hot Raps charts shows the n-word is thriving and surviving. The #4 Hot Rap single this week is "Big Things Popping (Do It):" Do it [3x]... Read More
A left-wing spoof. Tom Elia gives it thumbs-up, calling it "an apt illustration of a lot of the hype surrounding Sen. Barack Obama." Yesterday: Barack locks up the llama vote
After I taped The O'Reilly Factor in Washington on Friday night, the real fun began. John Ondrasik and Five For Fighting played at the 9:30 Club. He was kind enough to offer a few guest passes, which Bryan Preston and I gladly used to share a rare, kids-free night out with our spouses. What a... Read More
Hoo-boy. That was a fun, wild ride. Here are the video highlights and lowlights of my first of two guest host stints on The O'Reilly Factor. Tonight's show replays at 11pm Eastern. I'll be back tomorrow night. In a nutshell: One Opio Sokoni informs us it's all the Founding Fathers' fault that hip-hop "artists" treat... Read More
John Mellencamp? Sammy Hagar? Kid Rock? The Who? Yup, they're all on National Review's list. Take a look--and bring your iPod.
Once in a blue moon, the New York Times prints something delicious. Jon Pareles' refreshingly nasty review of Coldplay's new album this weekend will put you in a good mood. The intro: *** Previous: Gwynnie's husband: I hate capitalism! See also Ankle Biting Pundits, which recently bestowed its Buffoon of the Week Award to Chris... Read More
Foul-mouthed rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg just inked a deal with 20th Century Fox to produce a film titled "Coach Snoop." According to the Chicago Sun-Times: Yeah, he's the next Joe Paternizzle, fo' shizzle.
Kimora Lee Simmons says: It's all your fault! From the Woe-Is-Me Celebrity Files... Who's fault is it? See related story: Russell rejects "materialist" rap against his wife. "This is all because Kimora is an African-American Asian woman."
Here's a little piece I did for the New York Post today on the Linda Ronstadt imbroglio. More blog commentary here and here and here and here. Plus: Frank. J. deconstructs "Desperado." Update: Reader Jack from Queens writes:
The recording artist known as "Jadakiss" is earning big bucks and bling-bling with a new hit single called "Why?" (Hat tip: Resurrection Song) The song accuses President Bush of involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, with the lyric "Why did Bush knock down the Towers?" According to Reuters/Billboard, Jadakiss said: "My people" presumably... Read More
