Duh Aficionado Magazine: Brokencyde Are Still THE WORST

We live in a world of constant transition. No duh. It’s like that old R.E.M. song: Everybody Changes. Remember that one? “Everybody changes, sometime.” Right? And so: seasons change, politics change, television shows are canceled, McRibs come and go. In fact, the only thing you can count on is that things will change. Benjamin Franklin famously wrote, “In this world, nothing is certain but death and taxes and the fact that the crunkcore band Brokencyde is the absolute fucking worse.” Didn’t you read my throw pillow? Seriously, though, you guys, you might have thought that it was 2010 and that there was a slight chance that Brokencyde had somehow become something other than the worst band that has ever existed, but that is not the case and I’m not entirely sure what made you ever think that was even possible. Their new video for “Teach Me How to Scream,” posted after the jump, reminds us that they are very much the single worst band in the history of bands. “What about Ke$ha?” You heard what I said. Now apologize to Ke$ha.

In a weird way, it’s kind of nice to have something stable in this world to hold onto as it spins ever more wildly out of control. Admittedly, holding onto them for stability makes holding onto steak knives to jam into your ears that much harder. (Thanks for the tip, Aftershock.)
