Girls Afoul

According to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag” reached #2 on the UK charts, which may be why the spawned-from-reality-television Brit pop group Girls Aloud would even know the song/decide to cover it. It comes off like a very spirited entry into the high school talent contest. But at a not very good high school! Where maybe most of the students are functionally illiterate! It is ill-advised and awful. Complete cultural dissonance achieved. (Seriously, pronouns aside, they changed the line “He drives an Iroc” to “She drives while I rock” — hello, translator?)
