LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock - Party Rock Anthem

Sometimes, it's amazing how far a catchy hook and a bit of personality can get you.  This record is a pretty standard effort from the American electro hop group, following on from previous album 'Party Rock' featuring their most famous track I'm in Miami Bitch.

Party Rock Anthem is therefore a suitable name, taking the best bits of their previous work.  It's got a simple four to the floor beat.  The lyrics are shallow.  The dance break synth riff is ripped straight from the above mentioned track.  And the effort from Pamela Anderson lookalike Lauren Bennett is totally vacuous.

But then there's that catchy hook.  It's a bit repetitive, but I guarantee you won't get this out of your head.  This is clearly the inspiration for the comedy video (plus a blatent 28 Days Later reference).  Undoubtedly you'll see the majority of the population shuffling to this in the coming weeks.  It's like a flu virus, only less healthy.
