G:TB's First Annual Greg Kihn Update (Distraction from Second F*ckton of Snow to Fall)


Add one part guy who looks like Stiles from Teen Wolf.
Combine with one legitimately great early 1980's hit.
Dilute with sea of filler that everyone over the age of 12 (except Weird Al) loathes.
Stir.
Assemble concoction into albums selling the man's band based on the way his monosyllabic name sounds. Like this, this or this.
Dump onto the public.
Repeat.

That is the Greg Kihn era in a nutshell. He started strong in the 1980's with The Breakup Song. However, his career slowly and steadily spiraled.



If you wonder what Greg Kihn is up to these days, he's back to whoring his last name in terribly cheesy ways again when he's not spinning classic rock as a DJ. If you don't believe me, go here to get your Kihncert on the Green tickets. But buy 'em quick because tickets for juggernauts like Styx and REO Speedwagon don't last long.

The editorial staff of G:TB, bringing you all the Greg Kihn news you kihn handle, wishes you a good day.

Public Service Announcement regarding snow etiquette for people who live in condo complexes with unassigned parking: Dig out your own parking space. If you have not had to dig out a space and take a space that has clearly been shoveled by someone else, dig another. That is all.

You should pee on their windshield so that when they scrape the ice off they'll get little frozen urine shavings on their gloves and jacket which will melt once they get in the car. Or just put a chair with a note in your spot.

I like some of Greg Kihn's lesser known crap (and "Jeopardy" was a full-fledged hit, too), and I liked his album titles like Next of Kihn or Kihnspiracy. I always thought "Wrath of Kihn" was an obvious choice he overlooked. Or "Sofa Kihn Good."

rob said...

next of kihn is too easy, i guess

TR said...

I think he used Kihntagious for one album because of his name. And his gonorrhea.

TR said...

If Lil Wayne's real name is Dwayne Carter, shouldn't he be Lil Dwayne?

zoltan said...

It's a silent D.

Dennis said...

I gave Party Rachael a silent D once before...

Marls said...

Dennis - AWL together with not a full spittake but a bit of coffee dribble.

Dave said...

whitney likes greg kihn? even i could have come to that kihnclusion.

TR said...

Silent D? Definition please?

Michael said...

party rachel is a great name from the days of yore. I too got a good laugh out of that one.

TR said...

Her list of Lammy conquests spans multiple years, body shapes and religious affiliations. A real equal-opportunity slut.

zoltan said...

Was she a big fat person?

TR said...

No Jame Gumb, she wasn't a great big fat person.

Mark said...

When TR and Zoltan have their chemistry right, they are a formidable comedy duo.

rob said...

they should do a podcast

Mark said...

Nobody will listen to that nonsense.

Kihnt Touch This

zoltan said...

I Kihn't believe it's not butter!

TJ said...

It puts the lotion in the basket or it gets the Zoltan...

Put the god damn lotion in the basket

TR said...

I'm not gonna lie. The prospect of adding tags for Styx, Kihn and the Speedwagon was the main (only?) aim of this post. We need to diversify our readership in a sociological sense. We now will have a real mustachioed following, as opposed to the faux-staches many of us sport on occasion.

zoltan said...

Toughened your nipples, didn't it.

Dan said...

i can smell your kihnt.
couldn't resist that one - sorry female viewers but i lay some of the blame on those that won't let go of clareeese!

Dan said...

plus...i think it's funny.
