Lonely Island - Boombox (feat. Julian Casablancas)

While everybody's busy searching for Grammy videos on YouTube, (err.., nice hair Thom) I recently came to the realization of this new track by SNL member cast and writer trio, the Lonely Island which feature vocals by Julian Casablancas.

You can listen to the song here.

And there's also a download link somewhere here.

I cringed throughout the entire tune, because it was that cringeworthy, and I do not normally listen to these type of songs nor does Julian usually sings in one. And it sort of reminded me of that mock interview on the plane between Julian and Ryan Gentles on 'In Transit' and I thought:

Oh my god, that's it isn't it? He's gonna start wearing baggy jeans isn't he?

Hopefully not though. Hopefully the assumption of 'simply fulfilling a friend's request' remains true.


On a similar note, they say the Strokes reunite for the 4th record on the 11th, some say 17th (18th?). I'm just more concerned about two mid-term exams I'll be having on those two dates. Because if I don't score..., I die.
