Song: Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye (1969)
With it being the final day of September, it is officially time to say Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Gooooodbye to this Clear Channel (now iHeartRadio) bit that I've run into the ground like United 93.
Sure, I've made jokes at the expense of 9/11 while paying homage to censored songs in the wake of a tragedy, but that's just because I've used humor to cope my entire life. Tragedy + time = comedy. 9/11 is hands down the worst thing that's happened during my lifetime. I watched a Youtube video of last phone calls the other night and cried my eyes out in lieu of getting to bed at a reasonable hour because I love to be in pain. It pisses me off that the Taliban is somehow back (and if you think it's Uncle Joe's fault you should look into who released 5,000 Taliban members from prison...), but if you become some "you can't say that" loser, you're letting the terrorists win. I hope people joke about my death the day I die (after feeling sad for at least an hour).
Hopefully, you've learned a little something about music and history from this September's SODs. Regular, no theme songs will return tomorrow (likely Monday because on Friday afternoons, I end up crashing to make up for getting less than 30 hours of sleep during the workweek).
Rest in peace to all the victims of the September 11th attacks. My thoughts are with their families.
Remember the Titans came out 21 years and one day ago. This scene gets me every time. R.I.P. Gerry Bertier!
