Neil Armstrong > Chop

Louis and Stretch bear the name better, too, but Neil takes the cake for Armstrongs.

Why is Chop Arm Strong -- you know, the rap-rock song celebrating the Atlanta Braves (see below) -- even in this conversation?

The tune itself and its disarrayed lyrics was bad enough. The overly-dramatic music video compounds our pain, which is no longer just resident to the ear.

"I'm a Brave to the grave," Aaron Chewning, the artist, begins after standing in a smoky room filled with chauvinistic musicians.

"I've never worn a cap without an A on it," he continues. The Armstrongs turn in their graves. Scott Stapp, the lyricist, has now possessed Chewning, who's doing his best Linkin Park.

Then the chorus.

Chewning rallies Braves fans -- and believe us, many will rally around this -- with the poetry that is, "I've got my chop arm strong" -- something the singer says we don't want to see flexed.


This is atrocious and should be chopped from the internet.
