The most unintentionally funny record of the year. Indeed, perhaps of the decade. If I thought they actually understood the meaning of the song, I’d accuse them of hubris. But they seem about as aware of the song’s intent as Pat Boone was when he sang “Tutti Frutti.” Listen all the way through so you can hear the “shoo-be-doo-wops” they throw in towards the end.
A hilarious, foolish disaster that reveals just how vacuous and shallow a band they are. Somewhere in heaven, John Lennon is laughing his ass off.
