“I’d Rather People Focus on Hard to Swallow (Plug, Plug)”

posted by on January 15 at 14:13 PM

Against Me! has a new video for the song “Stop” from last year’s New Wave. It’s good and all, a music video, whatever. The dude from Dillinger Four is in it, but the ending scene, where they beat the shit out of the TV and the television set reminded me of a classic moment on MTV.

John Stewart (pre-Daily Show days), Janeane Garofalo, Chris Kattan, and Denis Leary were counting down the “25 lamest videos” and retiring them from ever being shown on the “music” channel ever again. Vanilla Ice was invited to the studio to retire his hit “Ice Ice, Baby.” This was when he was pimping his new “hardcore” band Hard to Swallow. He was supposed to smash the tape. He wasn’t supposed to smash the set, the bowl of popcorn, and (almost) John Stewart.

I never thought I'd see this again.

Vanilla Ice, if I remember right, also had a smashy fit on Dennis Miller around the same time, over-compensating like an amazing human being.

Still, nothing will beat the NOFX, "Seeing Double at the Triple Rock". That's a downright tribute.

Thanks for the Against Me! tip.
