2000's Guilt #26: The All American Rejects “Swing Swing” (2002)

#8 guilty pleasure song of 2003 (tied with Bowling for soup lmao)

Anger and hatred transformed into acceptance and genuine enjoyment somewhere between my 14th and 30th time hearing "Swing Swing." ... transformation did not occur until rock stations had dropped the tracks, and pop stations had picked them up. It's the result of genre re-labeling. - TMK, 12/31/03

Makes sense.

Edit (8/18/11): We forgot to mention part of our initial enjoying of "Swing Swing" was partially due to how badly they ripped off the bassline from "Good" by Better Than Ezra.
