This week we talk about Willa Ford, an aspiring bad girl whose career was cut short by a tragic event in 2001. Returning guest Laura Mee recalls this song helping hone her edge during the transition from Utah to California, and from pop to pop punk.
We talk about the precedent set by the song with likely paved the way for the “dirty” eras of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera; A weird, Eminem-based rap verse by someone who is not Eminem; And an outfit featuring what we all agree to be a diaper.
Music We Like: Zaytoven - Get Back Right, Gatecreeper - Sonoran Deprivation, and Gay Witch Abortion - Maverick
