Townsend, some boy band that I’ve never heard of before and never want to again, has released a cover of the Def Leppard classic Pour Some Sugar On Me. To say their version of the song sucks would be to insult all those songs out there that really do suck. Jjust when you think it can’t get any worse and they can’t suck out anymore groove from the tune, they add a white boy rap in the middle.
But the video introduces even higher degrees of suckage. The lead singer from Smashmouth is in it for some reason, as is Teck from MTV Real World Hawaii. The only thing that kept me from ripping my eyes out while watching this dreck was the scene where the lead singer is glammed up and is nearly the spitting image of Hedwig from The Angry Inch. It’s unintentional, of that I’m sure.
Thanks to Jonson for the tip, I think.

Oh, darn. Townsend has broken up. Whatever will do, wherever will I go, blah, blah, blah.

I tried to find Townsend’s album on Amazon, but no luck. Apparently, they’re not even worth stocking, which makes it harder for me to mock them appropriately.
