    What is the name of this song??!?

    I can't even think of the goddam lyrics!

    It was "big" in 2009 or 2010. It's kind of hipster rock. The main message of the song was about how everyone is insincere, and at one point the singer is like "I'm doing it right now!" (meaning, he's being insincere even as he's lamenting insincerity). It was by a band with a name that invoked images of hockey kids in my head, whatever that means.

    Help me, Benbo. It was a good song, and I may never hear it again.

    Could be wrong, but I think you want "Hook" by Blues Traveler.

    Not even close! But upon reading the lyrics and actually listening to what's being said, I'm embarrassed to have missed the meaning for so long.

    I think was more like "la-de-da-de-dum, la-de-da-de-dum, something something birds."

    That stupid Mike Posner song is the only thing that pops into my mind. But that's not rock. It's catchy and stupid.

    Eh, I tried. I hadn't thought about that song in years until your thread, and it came to mind immediately. I memorized the "rap" in the middle of the song back in the day, but it took me forever because I kept screwing up and say "hip three minute titties"...
