Track of the Day: Bay Area Slang Top 100

Posted By on Mon, Aug 3, 2009 at 9:29 AM

Rafael Casal knows how to make a stir for this month's release of the Monster LP: the creation of a catchy, funny, instantly-viral hit that doubles as a dictionary for local lingo.

"Bay Area Slang Top 100 (The Grinch song)" fliles through 100 Yay Area phrases in three minutes, with a video that offers subtitle definitions for those who didn't know, say, "Pop your collar" is "an action that asserts your dominance over anything oppressive."

Check the video above. If you have favorite phrases to comment on here, or lingo Rafael missed in the linup, let us know below.

  • 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.'"
