If you're going to sing a Dio song, for Chrissakes, man, you better not jack around

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Just stumbled across this gem on the Smoking Gun (via the Daily Swarm). This just in: If you ever find yourself at a karaoke bar in River Falls, Wisconsin, and you think you're gonna be slick and try your hand at a song by Dio, you better not fuck around. If you're off the mark, you're liable to find yourself on the business end of a beatdown. Same thing goes for Coldplay, evidently, in Washington state. We can think of a few songs that would make us go ape shit -- some because they're sacred and you just don't go there, and some because, well, we hate them with an unbridled passion. Find out which ones could incite us to violence after the jump, and then, of course, feel free to weigh in with your own. -- Dave Herrera

1. "What's Going On" (file under: sacred)

2. "Let's Stay Together" (file under: don't even think about it, champ.)

3. "Baby Got Back" (file under: knock it off. really.)

4. "Two Princes" (file under: fuck off!)

5. "I Kissed a Girl" (file under: no you didn't. shut up already.)

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
