Haven't watched the whole first video yet, but how on earth is the Kinks' Sleepwalker a target of these schmoes?

Sheesh, those Peters brother fellas are pretty laughable. Just a lot of casual homophobia and zero tolerance for non-christian religions (how dare you talk about reincarnation!). I watched the whole thing and was waiting for it to be revealed at the end that they've never actually listened to any of the music they're so opposed to.

I mean, honestly, he holds up a copy of Curtis Mayfield's Sweet Exorcist album seemingly for the simple fact that the word "exorcist" is in the title. Do they not realize that this is the same guy that wrote 'People Get Ready'?

And the fact that they refer to Steely Dan is doubly amazing: 1) because they talk about this "Steely Dan" as if it's a single person and 2) they literally have no clue what a "steely dan" is a euphemism for (giggity).

he doesn't need to be racist about it though. (Austin), Monday, 13 November 2017 19:48 (six days ago) Permalink

Alan Parsons' song about the wonders of bestiality?! Must investigate.

Right? I don't think Alan Parsons was ever that interesting, ever.

He must be referring to "You Lie Down With Dogs." I haven't made it to the actual presentation yet, that intro narrator is an A+ Kent Brockman-type old school news reader though.
