What's Up?

Date: October 9th, 2021

I'd be lying if I said I didn't cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed, but it's because it means I'm going to sleep and can't listen to What's Up on loop. And I say, heyyy heyyyy heyyyyy. I SAID HEY.

Now let's talk about the obvious:

Four Non-Blondes!? Heresy. There should be at least one blonde. Otherwise this is exclusionary and problematic.

Main singer chick with the dreadlocks, big hat and goggles inspired every smelly chick in the 90s to think they could just copypaste her fashion and suddenly be cool. For that, I respect her. Leader of the herd? Unheard of.

25 years and my life is still tryin' to get up that great big hill of hope for a destination.

Dude, same. I totally know how you feel, lady. It's one of those purple hills from the censored D12 song... because I wanna get fuckeddddd uppppp son!

I realized quickly when I knew I should that the world was made up of this brotherhood of man.

So... is this about sexism? Is everything about sexism? Is is the patriarchy? Do men need to be stopped? Is the brotherhood of man going to oppress all women? Are they gonna touch dick tips? Gonna kiss a little? Big bunch of gay intercourse? Fucking horrible. I'm sorry you had to go through that, Fourth Non Blonde.

Good lord. Is this a feminist band!? Am I supporting women by listening to this!? FUCK. This is interfering with my Highlander mentality. Whose head do I gotta chop off?

Alright. Fuck it. I'm not going lyric by lyric on this shit. Look. She wants a revolution but she doesn't have the charisma to pull it off. That's the real bones of this meat pie. But that's not what we all think about when this song comes on. It's not the Resident Evil trailer that just used it. It's not Lady Gaga covering it. No. It's motherfucking He-Man.

HE-MAN.
