10 ‘SEMINAL’ BANDS THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY LISTENS TO
6 Fela Kuti
Very cool. African rebel. Weed-smoking revolutionary. Sexy guy. Can you bear to listen to it when you’re all alone? No. You tried it once but were embarrassed to have it coming out of your apartment door when your neighbors walked by. That’s because, no matter how cool the guy was, it’s still world beat and world beat music is mom music.
yo, if you can put on Fela and not want to dance you are probably just white. (no offense guys, but yall can’t dance, and you know it)
