Skip to comments.Cops To Drunk Drivers: We’ll Make You Listen To One Direction
Posted on 11/26/2016 5:02:08 PM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo
A small Minnesota police departments tweet went viral this week after it threatened to subject drunk drivers to the music of One Direction. Just before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, police in Wyoming, a city 30 miles north of the Twin Cities, tweeted the warning, which went on to garner, as of Saturday afternoon, more than 5,000 retweets and 9,000 likes.
In the tweet, police warned that drunk drivers will be caught, arrested and made to listen to One Direction cover bands on the way to jail. There was no mention of the Eighth Amendment, which protects citizens from cruel and unusual punishment. The response to the tweet was immense.
I have never heard a One Direction song. Is it worse than Bro County?
Bro County= Bro Country
Could be worse, as The Walking my Dead proved.
It could be an endless loop of “Easy Street”.
... That’s evil. I mean, they didn’t say One Direction, they said COVER SONGS of One Direction... That’s, well, digging into a far far deeper portion of hell.
Here’s one of their songs, which I did recognize.
I link it because it has close to 1 billion hits:
Yep. Cover bands can be the worst.
It’s likely they didn’t know each other before being introduced by an established music industry executive, who chose them for their looks.
The look to be the new incarnation of Backstreet Boys, or N’Synch.
I doubt they can read music, write songs, or “really” play instruments.
It looks to be a business creation, a lot like 90% of the acts in Japan or Korea.
“Hey, Hey we’re the Monkees!”
Ready for the cover of Tiger Beat.
There have been some creative uses of music. Years ago 7-11 (or maybe it was some other 24-hour chain) had problems large groups of teens loitering outside. They put in green lights outside (it made skin tones look hideous) and played classical music. Not cool. The teens left. And then there were the US troops blasting hard rock to get Noriega to leave his compound in Panama.
That’s like one view for every dollar Obama peed away on hos phony “stimulus”
That photo has inspired my band’s name: The Intentional Bedheads.
Or maybe The Faux Tussles. Or how about The Hairhats?
I was maybe 5 years old at the time, but to my horror I think they RIPPED THIS OFF...?
Wasn’t that something The Monkees did at the beginning of their stupid TV show...? I mean the cross-over-leg-walking thing you’ll see where I start you, there.
That could be my imagination.
Is there NOTHING new...? Scary.
Make the drunks listen to the “Greatest Hits of Yoko Ono,” That’ll teach ‘em.
Worse would be an endless loop of ... It’s a small small world ... Disney does torture right!
What? You don't like ice cold beer in a truck on an endless summer night with your girl while catching up a catfish dinner?
One Direction is decent, one of those bands that make the kind of music that is popular enough in its day but is forgotten a decade or so later.
I’ve heard really good cover bands; I’m not certain why having to listen to covers would necessarily be a warning against drunk driving.
