Sublime "What I Got"

Here's another "Dismissive One Sentence Reviews By Friends" posts . . .

Sublime's "What I Got" had probably been out for a few years at this point.  I was riding in the car with my Dad, and I'd flipped the radio to WFNX.

As the song played, I noticed my Dad look at the radio once or twice, with a furrowed brow.

Finally he said, "Is that noise in the song?  Is it supposed to sound like that?"

I thought about trying to explain the whole concept of Turntable Mixing And Scratching, but I realized that Yes, to a guy who grew up on Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry, the DJ noises on "What I Got" probably did sound like something was wrong with the radio.

Hear the song on Youtube.
