Is It Just Me, Or Is This Hilarious?

Wikipedia on Johnny Thunders:

"With Thunders leading the band, the Heartbreakers toured America before going to Britain to join the Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned on the now-legendary Anarchy Tour, replacing the Ramones, who had quit the tour due to a lack of organization."

Bassem Sabry

The first song from of Montreal's next album, Aureate Gloom, has dropped.  I must like it, given that I've replayed it multiple times today.  I'm kind of surprised by the rather explicitly political title and lyrics (and, for that matter, not even on American politics but on the Arab Spring, unless the Arab Spring is being used as a metaphor for American politics?), though.  That isn't really what I would have expected from Kevin Barnes.
