2000 : 07 "Solid" by the Dandy Warhols

Anyone who has seen the 2004 documentary Dig, about the musical and personal rivalry between the Dandy Warhols and another band, can attest to at least one thing: this group is comprised of total assholes. Seriously, kids, don't do drugs! This song has all the Californian pop snark of "Bohemian Like You" but seems to be directed more at their fellow jerks Brian Jonestown Massacre than at hipsters in general, which makes it even juicier; a dis served with a wink and a coked-up smile. Hilarious, but also good enough musically to make me shake my head in dismay at the stupid antics this band gets up to. Then again, could they have managed to create this sober? Now there's something to ponder.
