Is Cee-Lo's 'Fuck You' the Best Use of 'Fuck' in a Song? And Other Awesome YouTube Comments

Oh, sorry, hang on -- Cee-Lo Green's "Fuck You" video just stopped and we have to go press play again. Be right back. And when its glorious three minutes and forty-six seconds comes to an end, you'll have to excuse us again, please. We plan to listen to this song all afternoon. Maybe all weekend.

    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.'"
