OK Go cover "Interesting Drug" - lyric video with Trump clips; to perform on James Corden Jan. 18

Matt sends the OK Go press release excerpt:

LOS ANGELES, CA - January 18, 2017 - Just in time for the U.S. Presidential Inauguration, OK Go will perform Morrissey's politically charged "Interesting Drug" on The Late Late Show With James Corden tonight, January 18.

Lead singer Damian Kulash said of the song: "I was listening to Morrissey around the time of the conventions last year and when he belted 'There are some bad people on the rise' - that fabulous opening line of Interesting Drug - I felt like he'd written it about the very moment we were living through. Now, with this bewildering, surreal inauguration looming, it seems like a good time to share those poignant lines again." OK Go also released a video for their cover of the track today - watch it here.





UPDATE Jan. 20:

That's what great poets do.

Original is 'rise' isn't it? Just changed to 'right' for the writing in the video
Yep, for sure it was "on the rise", but then as today that bad people on the rise was on the right (wing)

Terrible cover. Where are these clowns from, Chicago? There are some bad people on Obama's side of town.
Obama is a train wreck. Clinton is a vile crook. Trump loves the middle class and the middle class loves him back. It's the weak liberals with the spine as fragile as a wet Kleenex who are making the most noise and who got greedy erections at the thought of "free college."
Buckle up Buckeroos!

I like the thinking behind covering this song. And Morrissey getting indirect exposure on mainstream TV is a good thing.

Not crazy about the sluggish tempo, but they can play all right and vocals are OK.

I find Corden insufferable but will check out the Youtube vid in a few hours.

I like the cover. It's a great song, perfect for the ocassion. Things were not good before now for a lot of people, and this is a proof things always can get worst.
As Morrissey said, there wasn't a good alternative. I'm glad he was brave enough to say it before the election and repeat it now. He respects people because he doesn't sell shit as many pop stars did supporting Clinton. People knows he is a man with brains and heart always in the right side.

'Brains and his heart always in the right side"

Not sure his love of Farage backs that up. Or his mistaken belief that Andy Burnham had already been elected mayor of Manchester. His politics are at best reactionary and juvenile, at worst flirting with the right wing and xenophobic.

I'd look elsewhere for political guidance.

I don't need political guidance. I have brains and heart too.

I've never seen anyone bang on so much about their alleged intelligence and heart. You seem to need convincing the most.
