I was at the local dive bar after work and was watching the game on TV. There was a couple of girls playing music on the jukebox. They played a bunch of bar staples like Journey, Queen, Tupac, etc. They were doing a decent job until one of them put on the bonus track from Sublime’s Robbin’ the Hood. It’s not much of a bonus track. It’s a simple reggae beat playing in the background as Brad Nowell thanks a random bunch of people. It’s only about two and a half minutes long, but two and a half minutes is a long time to listen to a stoned guy mumbling barely coherent thank yous instead of an actual song. I don’t recommend playing the bonus track on the jukebox unless you want to piss off the whole bar. Pay attention to what you’re playing, and don’t play tracks you aren’t familiar with. You’d think that would be obvious to most people, but I learned a long time ago that common sense is a lot more rare than you’d expect.
