Hey Mr DJ: Blaxploitation Edition

“To the black man; thanks for taking it all in stride.” –Stewie Griffin

Today marks the beginning of Black History Month. We honor the contributions of African-Americans and the mighty role they’ve played in our nation’s history and the shaping of our culture. What contributions to speak of! Peanut butter, Jazz, Sports, the Highest Homicide Rate in the Civilized World, Southern Cuisine, Half of Barack Obama…the list goes on and on.

Join the jubilee with:

1. All music by black artists

2. Music about the black experience, the civil rights movement, and overcoming shit

3. Black music done badly by white people (or other less soulful races)

And now, in the name of equality, you shall be judged not by the color of your skin, but by the content on your playlist.

pfluffy: Tutti Frutti by Pat Boone

Santino: Blood on the Dance Floor by Michael Jackson

Biggie G: Boyz in the Hood by Dynamite Hack

Iconoclast: Bad to the Bone by George Thorogood

WVR: Miracles by ICP

Mississippi Yankee: Fred Fucking Durst, that’s what. The name of the song does not even fucking matter, does it?

  1. Thrill, Ima startin to think you’re not 2 fonda me.

    IMHO the greatest contribution the American black man made to music was Doo-Wop. And the worse was Hip-Hop. But the most cringe worthy is white boys doing rap, even if it’s one of my own “homeboys”

    And if you want it done really badly…

    That NEEDED to be noted.

    Nonsense. The more outrageous the selection, the harder I tried. I’m not saying you should feel privileged to be exposed to Fred Durst, but it does mean I went all out.

  4. Thrill,
    My humor seems to have missed it’s mark.

    Here’s a white boy (Welsh) doing a pretty good job of a Lead Belly tune.

  7. I’m loving the #3′s, mostly because it makes me appreciate blacks so much more. This is the true reason for the season.

  8. Ain’t no one gonna beat FPrefect89… but I think this might be a close second.

    Oh, God yes. This was going to be dakrat’s song if he had gotten a dedication.

    When I first heard this song, I thought he was black.

    Mrs Thrill has told me that MTV probably ruined his career by showing the video.

    Here’s something for you, Santino:

    I MOSTLY agree, but…

    It all went completely wrong when it stopped being politically and socially conscious and became all about sex and weed. Oh, and murder. It’s too far gone by now, so I must mostly agree with you.

  10. Don’t know if you’re acquainted with “Hayseed Dixie”. They’re a bluegrass band that got their start dong AC/DC covers. And quite well too. Lead singer is Redneck Cletus Ray.

    This song is word for word the very same song Snoop Dog made famous. To me the mandolin really makes this one work.

  11. CM, that’s a pretty good song played on a truly wonderful sounding Dobro Guitar. That fella needs to let that Dobro loose,(it will soar) and plug in the amp too.

    The Dopyera brothers sure knew what they were doing.
