Summer Jam 2013: Cookie Monster, “Me Want It (But Me Wait)”

We are so starved for a decent summer jam this summer that I will gladly, AT LEAST for today, take Cookie Monster's self control-focused parody of summer jam contender Icona Pop's "I Love It" (which, if you ask any Stereogum commenter, you'll know uh-actually came out in the spring of 2012). Am I going to… More »

“Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rap” Is NOT A Summer Jam Of 2012

Not only because it's from 2007, but also because there is just no way that "Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rap" would go over well during any summer events. Keep it off your iPods! Don't get fooled! Boys, keep working! You'll get there someday or maybe you won't but in any case just keep working on it,… More »

Ke$ha And 3OH!3 Doing Everything In Their Power To Ruin Summer

Summer is here! And that means beaches and barbecues and air conditioning and ice cream cones and swimming holes and roast beef sandwiches and alien invasion and sleepwalking and the Large Hadron Collider. But most importantly it means SUMMER JAMS. You guys know my passion for summer jams, you have seen it for yourself. More »

The 16th Summer Jam Of 2010: ICP “Miracles” Performed By Look At The Fields

Obviously, Insane Clown Posse is more than just hilariously ridiculous lyrics about magic magnets and pelicans eating cellphones, it's also the childlike inability to rap, and the adolescent obsession with identity-hiding clown makeup, and the generally cavalier attitudes towards rape and murder. But you have to admit that hearing this song in the gentle shoegaze… More »

The 15th Summer Jam Of 2010: Pogo “Gardyn”

Pogo, the young man who brought us the Alice in Wonderland remix, and the Mary Poppins remix, and other remixes, has an all original remix, "Gardyn," created entirely in his garden, and it's a really nice addition to our mixtape, although I'd kind of rather just have the garden? That is seriously… More »

I Wish Big Boi Was My Dad

"Shutterbugs" video, you guys: Big Boi would probably be kind of a bad dad, I guess. But still. What he would lack in fishing trips and games of catch and teaching me how to shave and nightly bedtime stories (things I still definitely do with my dad all the time for sure), he would make… More »

The 13th Summer Jam Of 2010: MC Chris “Twin Peaks”

When the Videogum Summer Jams Mixtape 2010 is finished and you play it on your shoulder boombox, people are going to be stopping you on the street and saying, "That mixtape is very timely and relevant." (Via BuzzFeed.)… More »

The 12th Summer Jam Of 2010: He-Man’s “What’s Up?”

This barbecue is going to be a nightmare! Incidentally, I went back and watched the original Four Non Blondes music video and I never realized that that is where Mystery and the rest of the Pick-Up Artist crew got ALL THEIR IDEAS. (Via BuzzFeed.)… More »

The 10th Summer Jam Of 2010: Othelio’s “Lift Me”

Othelio are clearly the next Susan Boyle. NOT! In addition to being just one of the hottest summer jams from one of the crispest, cleanest, most in date groups, this clip serves as a welcome reminder that America is not the only land of goblins and nightmares. Even in the Queen's England, a pair of… More »

The Seventh Summer Jam Of 2010: “Money Can’t Buy You Class” By Luann De Lesseps

I haven't been writing about this season of The Real Housewives of New York because it turns out, and I only just learned this, but apparently you only live once? Did you guys know that? Obviously, if that's true, then that changes EVERYTHING. The level of tolerance for watching human nightmares with melting faces engage… More »

The Sixth Summer Jam Of 2010

While we wait for his album to drop, this summer it's all about the 50 Tyson freestyle. He was born to be a ball player. A football player. And he's sweet 16. (REEEEEMIIIIX!)… More »

The Fifth Summer Jam Of 2010

By the time we're done, you're not going to be able to go out on the street without hearing "I like the way she cook my Whopper" coming out of every car window. (Yes you will, you will be able to go out on the street. Oh, I am a terrible at rap boasting!). More »

Hey, Internet, Where Is The Hank Johnson Guam Remix?

If you haven't seen this already, representative Hank Johnson (D-GA) was in a House Armed Services Committee meeting last week and expressed concern that an influx of sailors on the island of Guam would cause it to tip over. Ha. The question is will a remix of this make it onto the Videogum Summer… More »
