HEALTH watchdogs last night blasted an “irresponsible” new pop song that glorifies fast food.
The lyrics continually repeat the names of chains like McDonald’s.
Diet experts fear the song will encourage kids to eat unhealthily
…Frontman Martin Roycroft and pals sing “McDonald’s, McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut”, and “I want it I need it, Nothing else can beat it”.
I don’t know what to say about a band (Fast Food Rockers) that dresses as a kind of futuristic/retro fast food servers with a mascot called hotdog.
since when did kids need encouragement to eat unhealthy
I admit that I haven’t heard this band–but I’ve got to think they’re more wholesome for kids than these tree-hugger, earth-worshipping vegetarians who litter the music scene now!
Why aren’t these same people up in arms about music which glorifies extramarital sex ? Sleeping around is certainly at least as big a health risk as eating a cheeseburger.
What is the matter with you, you limp fools
this is blatant advertising in the guise of art
and fun. Marketed with all the might the industry can muster aimed at the 6-11 year old range who are not mature enough to appreciate good music. Obesity is one of the top killers in the developed world not STDs (which I think this age group is safe from anyway. Apparantly the lyrics from this song were inspired by one sung by the girl guides of america… what a fucked up country!
