Play

For whatever reason, clustering of good music happens rarely. We decided to look at what years really produced consistently awesome music.

Video Bonus: Shark Attack for Shark Week

Whenever Shark Week comes around, we have to celebrate with the first song we ever wrote, Shark Attack. The video was actually produced by the local FOX affiliate in Washington, DC after we won a battle of bands for the DC area. The lyrics are easy to learn.

If you want to dance along, put your hand on your head (like a fin) and bite somebody.

Also, for some reason, Wendy Williams, the talk show host, is in this video. Look for it.
