This past weekend Nintendo celebrated the launch of Pokemon Black and White. On hand for the event was the eccentric rock trio, the Presidents of the United States of America, who brought with them an original Pokemon-themed song for the occasion. Now, the Presidents have proven with songs like “Kitty” and “Dune Buggy” that lyrics mean shit. You can take the most ridiculous words and wrap them in a catchy beat and melody and still come away with a great song. Lyrics are just the accompaniment to the real star of the show: the actual music.
However, the President’s Pokemon song might be stretching that theory a little bit. Look, we love both Pokemon and the Presidents around here. But they are not a peanut butter and jelly combination. They’re more like blowjobs and a trip to Grandma’s house (you decide which is which). Granted, both are awesome, but they aren’t typically a great fit together. We hope you feel the same way about that. Otherwise, gross.
Anyway, give the Presidents of the United States of America’s Pokemon song, "Can’t Stop (Catchin’ ‘Em All)," a listen and judge for yourself.
