The Streets are behind you, and they all got swine flu

When I came down with a cold this weekend, the first thing that everyone kept saying to me was that I should get checked out for Swine Flue. Seriously, I’m not joking when I say that I had around 20 people suggest that I may have contracted H1N1. In my mind, all I could do was laugh; to me this flu scare is nothing more than a media frenzy cooked up to district the world from the global financial meltdown that’s still taking place, and people should be embarrassed by legitimizing the problem as much as they have with their overreactions. (personal opinion)

That’s why I was so stoked to log on to the interwebs this morning and see that my main man Mike Skinner from The Streets was on the same page as me. At least, I think we’re on the same page; he’s got a wit that I can’t quite match. Skinner is back, sounding as fresh as ever, and in the hilarious new track “He’s Behind You, He’s Got Swine Flu” he likens the swine flu “pandemic” to a zombie takeover; the metaphors are spot on, as you can see from the glorious, classic cult zombie visuals that were sync to the outlandish rhymes. The Streets end each verse by suggesting you just “decapitate your mate” and don’t worry about becoming a zombie, sharply taking a jab at the governments around the world that are blindly sacrificing so much to adhere to the precautionary principle. It’s great to hear Skinner spitting with a spark again…
