I’m not sure we can beat the Spice Girls…

  1. That’s Bon Jovi, random Top Gun references, Queen, and the fucking Spice Girls. There’s also been Blue Oyster Cult, Journey, ABBA, AC/DC, and the initial selection of random 70s rock songs.

    This week is 80s thrashers Overkill, which will be totally meaningless to anyone besides me and Kaidenmar.
