This "Game On" Song Supporting Rick Santorum Is a Comedy of Horrors

  • "...There will be justice for the unborn/ Factories back on our shores..."

Say what you will about Obama -- it is impossible to imagine the current president inspiring a song as terrifically awful as "Game On," which this Oklahoma group called First Love just released supporting the candidacy of Mr. Rogers' evil twin, Rick Santorum.

From the first line ("We've finally got a man who will stand for what is right") to the second ("We've got a man who understands that God gave the Bill of Rights") to the third ("Oh, there is hope for our nation again/ maybe the first time since we had Ronald Reagan"), "Game On" comes across like a cruel parody, or a bad joke. It can't be real, you think. Surely, this was penned by a cynical New Yorker with ties to Saturday Night Live, trying to make Santorum supporters look facile.

But no. It actually appears to be a cheerful, sincere song sung by a pair of Tulsa ladies endorsing a grinning bigot who wants to force his medieval values on their vaginas and the entire country. But they're so damn happy about it. They want you to stand up, and sing, people! Hope is here! Rick Santorum is running to save the world, return white males to their rightful position of omnipotence, and ensure that the nation's women are left free to cook, procreate, and write dopey folk songs!

View this terrifying glimpse of our eight-children-per-family future (and read its entire lyrics) after the jump.

Lyrics (original capitalization hilarity retained):

VS 1:

GAME ON! Join the Fight

We've finally got a Man who will Stand for what is Right

GAME ON! Victory's in Sight

We've got a Man who Understands that God Gave the Bill of Rights

CH:

Oh, there is Hope for our Nation again

Maybe the First time Since we Had Ronald Reagan

There will be Justice for the Unborn

Factories back on our Shores

Where the Constitution rules our land

Yes, I Believe... Rick Santorum is our Man!

Vs 2:

GAME ON! He's got the Plan

To Lower Taxes, Raise Morale, To Put the Power in our Hands

GAME ON! Change is at hand

Faithful to his Wife and Seven Kids - He'll be Loyal to our land

BR:

Oh It's crazy, What's been slipping through our hands

When we the People are still supposed to rule this Land

Rick Understands

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
