bad bands

Some guy here was just singing, “It’s the FINAL COUNTDOWN!” and he yells, “Hey Howley! You Remember that one?!” And I’m like, “Hell YES! It’s EUROPE!” And we laughed and then I was sort of wondering why I fill my brain with useless matter such as the lyrics to “The Final Countdown” by Europe. And so I was trying to come up with the other bands named after states and countries and cities and stuff. And I came up with a few. Asia. Europe. Boston. Chicago…. That’s off the top of the bean. There are more. I am sure. There are more.

  2. When I was in 8th grade I had a 3/4 length black jersey with red sleeves that had a big iron-on of Asia on the front.

    I was so. fucking. cool.

    Except I totally wasn’t.

  3. Damn! That would go for thousands of dollars on Ebay. Do you still have it?

    I should dig out all my old crap and sell it on Ebay before we reach some other ironic era and the 80s ain’t worth shit again.

  4. I don’t have any of my old shit. Not my Asia shirt, not my Fonzie shirt, not my Arnold Horshack action figure, not our collection of Star Wars trading cards, none of it. Who knew? Just last week I was crying to my mother over the fact that she had thrown away my Hardy Boys record carrying case and my Donny and Marie record player. Life is hard, it is so hard.

  6. I can’t believe I am going to admit this but I used to wear my Asia t-shirt while also rocking out in the second violins.

    By the time I got to first violin I was wearing U2 and Howard Jones t-shirts.

  14. America.

    On the freaky front, I was sitting at the US vs Uruguay soccer match yesterday burning my ass off in the 175 degree heat when over the loud speaker what do I hear but “It’s the final countdown!!!!”

    I turn to Melissa and begin signing all the lyrics and mentioned that Europe “RAAAAWWWWWKKKKKSSSSS!!!” complete with my hands in the devil/rock/headbanger pose.

    Melissa wants a divorce.
