The NCAA March Madness Championship opened with a whimper last night as The Fray sauntered onto the court and promptly butchered the National Anthem. Choosing to play it with a tambourine and bongos may have been a bad enough decision, but the horrifyingly out-of-tune and jangly guitar turned a bad rendition into an atrocity.
This epic meet-up went down in 1980, during Queen's tour promoting their new album The Game. I'm sure it made the part where Freddie croons "Mamaaaaaa..." during Bohemian Rhapsody that much more poignant.
Oh wait, the prequels weren't out yet. It was a simpler time.
"Reanimated corpse" isn't entirely accurate. It's actually a hologram of the late, great West-coast rapper, which gave a surprise performance to finish off the first week of Coachella 2012. This proves that (a) industry executives can own your body as well as your soul, and (b) '90s nostalgia has gotten WAY out of hand.
