Third Eye Blind (you remember, from the ’90s?) quietly released a new single a few weeks ago. Reader Michael points out that frontman Stephan Jenkins quotes “Paper Planes” (I thought we buried that?) in its final minute, a fact I missed when I first heard the song and failed to make it through the whole thing. He writes…
Third Eye Blind’s new single “Non-Dairy Creamer” is pretty much golden in all the worst ways. You really should post something about it, because it not only has some, uhh –noteworthy — lyrics (In short, it begins to talk about KFC chicken not really being chicken and there is a “Young gay Republicans!” chant breakdown.) More interesting, though, is that the final minutes of the song quotes MIA’s “Paper Planes.”
KFC, STDs, M.I.A. … LOL. I don’t even mind Third Eye Blind when they come on XM Lucy. But this song could not go unpunished. Lyrics here in case you need to deface anyone’s Facebook wall.
The Red Star EP is out Tuesday on Sony.
UPDATE: Stephan Jenkins responds.
