WarRock TrackLog 36 – Smashed Gordon

Wow, let’s take a second to explain. The genesis of this song idea came from comic writer Chris Roberson and his wife, Allison Baker’s watching of old 80′s movies while drunk, livetweeting their night. They decided to watch Flash Gordon, and started hashtagging their tweets as #SmashedGordon (which I believe the name came from Paul Tobin if I’m not mistaken), and hilarity ensued.
Then the next day, I was lazily tweeting about what song idea I should do next, and Sir Edgar Wright (he likes to be called that, along with cadbury eggs) issued a challenge. And well, me and Sims do a podcast called War Rocket Ajax, so it all seemed to be kismet. And then I decided to shout out Wilson, Kevin, Rusty, Curt, and Chris just for the heck of it, because they’re bros.
And yes, the ending is a jab at the 80s conservatives, b/c they can suuuuck it. Also, this song was for anyone who called my “PBR” song anti-drinking. I love to drank (I’m pretty drunk off of Blue Moon beer as I type this). Y’know who else loves to drank? Smashed Gordon. Yep, see how it all comes together in the end? The beauty of hip hop.
