LMFAO - Sorry For Party Rocking

Okay Tuesday, bring it on. Hit me with your best New Music shot. And as a treat for the readers, I got a head start and will do two new albums today! Hooray! So we're starting with LMFAO - which is an acronym used via text messaging or on that new fad created by Al Gore - the internet. If you honestly don't know what that stands for by now, godspeed. Anyways, these guys have been "blowing up" on the pop charts for a little while now. Although I've heard of them, and I know a couple tracks have come on the radio while I was listening, my first impression of the songs were not positive. These guys are from the LA area of California and started making music around 2006 or so. The two "rappers" are related (uncle and nephew) and are related to Motown mogul Barry Gordy. Their first album dropped in 2009 and produced a couple singles. While it might have been considered a success by the label, it has only sold a couple hundred thousand copies total. Just last year though, they were featured on a David Guetta song, and they became more well known internationally versus just in the states. With the drop of this record, they are starting to tour overseas too. I'll assume they have to do this, as it's just not cutting the mustard here at home. I'm not really sure what to call this. It's kind of dance-ish and they certainly try to rap over the beats. All the things it's trying to be, it's not particularly good at any of them. How other sites have given this as high as 3 out of 5 stars is beyond me. My first impression seems to be my second, and this is garbage.

  1. i agree that lmfao is quite terrible and offensive, but how can you not get 'shots' stuck in your head? it just happens.

  2. actually they both really remind me of a parody of weird al, which is funny since, y'know, weird al does parodies of others...

    also this video is shot at the venetian in vegas.

  3. I have never gotten a song by them stuck in my head. Probably mostly because I turn them off. But listening to this yesterday, still no dice.

    Ahh Weird Al...nice vid.
