Never got the hate for that 4 Non Blondes song. But then, most of the songs mentioned so far are lovely. It takes all sorts and all that.
I was going to say something like Scouting For Girls or Kate Nash or The Wombats, but I think instead I'll erase Sweet Home Alabama.
It would have a wonderful knock-on effect. Erase Sweet Home Alabama, and suddenly:
- Neil Young's Southern Man isn't undermined by the devastating counter argument that "the skies are so blue"
- Kid Rock doesn't release that even worse song that samples it
- The worst bits from 8 Mile and Con Air cease to exist
- Less Confederate imagery on those channels that play classic rock videos all day
Win, win, win, win.
