Hi all, Dr. Whuzzerface here!
I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of a coward at times, especially when it comes to telling someone about how I feel. ESPECIALLY when what I feel towards that person goes beyond vexation, being miffed, irked, peeved, murderous, etc. Sure, about an hour after a confrontation I can think of several choice insults like “You were born of a motherless goat!” or “You vile reprobate!” but alas, in or around the moment, I fail miserably. That is why bands such as Darwin Deez exist, to help me think of the perfect song in my moment of need.
I first stumbled across these plucky ducks in 2009 and listening to “Bad Day” made many days afterward quite pleasant. This is not your basic “Yeah well this is what you deserve for _____” type of song. The very first bad day wish he gives is “I hope that the last page of your 800 page novel is missing” (for someone like me who loves reading, that is a huge diss). The insults get progressively harsher the further on in the song you get, but I hope that gives you a glimpse of the snarky lyrics. The chorus chimes in close to the beginning with “Every day oughtta be a bad day for you!” As for the beat, it’s surprisingly electro-pop which counter-balances the words rather well.
The gist? If you’re mad at someone, listen to this song. If the person in the fast lane on the freeway is going 5 under the limit and you’re late for work, listen to this song. If while at work your boss puts you to task for their mess-up, LISTEN TO THIS SONG. Wishing someone a “bad day” just got a whole lot easier. Enjoy!
