Hump My Tunnel

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the Black-Eyed Peas song "My Humps" may just be the worst accumulation of sound waves ever produced by man, woman, beast, or machine.

"Sonic catastrophe" doesn't begin to describe how bad the song is. Neither does the old standby, "piece of shit." The word "pain" works moderately well. "Aural crucifixion" may be even better still.

Who can save the world from the incarnate audio evil that is "My Humps?" The Arcade Fire, that's who.

Oh, it's good. It's very, very good.
