The Thermals “Canada”
Wow, they made it easy this time. I generally have a love/hate relationship with the Thermals, either finding their work borderline annoying or near pop perfection. Their latest song, Winter Olympics tribute “Canada,” falls somewhere much farther down the spectrum than borderline annoying and into downright terrible. It is as if someone gave them 30 minutes, 4 power chords and a generic melody and told them to write the most boring, trite and shitty song they could about our neighbor to the north. If that was their goal, they would bring home more goal medals than Michael Phelps (or whomever is supposed to win lots of gold medals at the Winter Olympics).
