I’m constantly amazed that there’s so much comedy in the world that has existed for decades and it takes me 28 years to find it. Watch this Kenny Rogers video and then we’ll discuss.
Okay, so Kenny Rogers writes a gang-rape ballad back in 1980 and no one ever talks about this? Seriously?
Was this one of the founding songs of gangsta rap? (Like you couldn’t imagine a rap song saying something along the lines of “They f-ed with my girl so now I’m gonna f them up.”)
Did this song provide one of the themes of Back to the Future (unable to back down from the “chicken” taunt)? As a matter of fact, did John Grisham have to pay royalties from A Time To Kill to Rogers?
Did this song really hit number 1 on the UK pop charts?
Did this song really get made into a movie?
Yes it did! I can get this from Netflix! I also love the fact that when I added this movie to my queue, it recommended this Chuck Norris gem.
And lastly, is Kenny Rogers implying that this guy shouldn’t have fought/killed/whatever the guys that gang-raped his girl? Really, that’s the story being told here? Turn the other cheek, even when the girl you love is gang-raped by three yokels who then laugh and taunt you afterwards? What a great message! I can’t wait to be on my deathbed and teach my son this lesson.
