Anyone ever heard "Party Hard" by Andrew W.K?

Is this popular somewhere in the U.S.?

This song is so bad, that I can't even comprehend it. It is like Mullet rock for the new millenium.

I assume that this is popular somewhere since I have seen bits of the video on MTV2 quite a few times. If this song makes it big, it is truly a sign that the apocalypse is among us.

I guess the point of this thread is to see if anyone else likes this song, and to see if it was popular anywhere.

Also,when trying to find the name of the band who sings this, I was surprised that the Strokes album and the White Stripes albums were recommended if you liked this crap. I really like the Strokes and the little that I have heard of White Stripes

Exactly, Europe was raving on THE STROKES and THE WHITE STRIPES and they did not disappoint me. I've seen em both live now and it was great.

But I scoured everywhere trying to DL some of this stupid f**ker's music and boy does it suck.

I mean it is not listenable. This is absolute trash trying to be 80's glam big hair rock. It sucks.

I'm glad I didn't go ahead and order it from Amazon/uk.

I've seen his video once on MTV X. You are right, that song has got to be one of the worst songs I've ever heard. I'd rather listen to "Gone" by N'Sync than this garbage.

edited to say...

I just went to All Music Guide (THE definitive site for music) and they gave his album "I Get Wet" 4 1/2 stars (out of 5).

Have you read the track list for this album? It's like we're back in the 80's and hair metal. Just from the album title alone you can tell we've hit a time warp. To name a few song titles:

It's Time to Party
Party Hard
Girls Own Love
Ready to Die
Take It Off
Party Til You Puke
Fun Night
and the title track...."I Get Wet"

Is he a joke? A wannabe throwback to the days of sex, drugs and rock and roll?

Yes, he is a joke and I happen to kinda like the song. He certainly cannot compare to the White Stripes however. Oh and one more thing: The Strokes are the most overrated band in ages. Have a nice day.

Actually he is not a joke. People assume that it is irony, but it isn't.

Everyone better get used to him, he's going to be far bigger than the Strokes or White Stripes.

And for the record, I am definitely not a fan.

They may be overrated, but we may be thinking that they are the greatest ever after listening to the crap this assclown and his ilk will be spewing on the radio when he gets popular.

I can honestly say that this guy is way worse than Creed, Limp Bizkit, NSync, Backstreet Boys and any other group you and I bitch about currently.

Nothing wrong with that. Rock music can be FUN, ya know. After all the talk of Radiohead and DMB (who IMO may be "artistic" but no fun), it's time to rock out and still have a smile on your face. BTW, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and POison are all in the studio as we speak recoding albums out later this sunner/fall

I saw the video and almost died, this song is one of the worst ever recorded.
