Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Hopes Are Dashed

“It’s a put-on.”

That’s the fucking chorus. The chorus of this song is “It’s a fucking put-on.” They played this at the end of the Republican National Convention tonight. There’s no more satirizing what’s happening, and I think we’re all going to die.

(It’s still one of The Who’s best songs, though.)


  1. it’s not as awesome as “won’t get fooled again” from the Kids Are Alright movie, but it’s still my all-time favourite MTV video:

    People forget….

    Scariest lyric he ever wrote.

    • maybe the republicans are hoping we forget:
      Forget Both Bushes.
      Forget Cruz is a complete asshole (but true to himself for sure)
      Forget Trump has had so business go bankrupt

      The sun shines
      And people forget
      The spray flies as the speedboat glides
      And people forget
      Forget they’re hiding
      The girls smile
      And people forget
      The snow packs as the skier tracks
      People forget
      Forget they’re hiding
