Two songs intended to be sarcastic but were instead hits

(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)

The Beastie Boys made this song as a fuck you to all the people that expected them to make dumb frat rock since they were three white boys in a band together, and also to mock the kids that showed up at their shows acting like morons.   Also it’s one of the most overly parenthetical song titles ever.

Robert Smith wrote this incredibly happy song in 1992 as a response to all the people who thought that The Cure was way too gloomy.  Hilariously, the song is even faster than it was intended because Robert Smith forgot to adjust things while recording the song, but it sounded so weird and forced happy that he kept it as it was.

Also, notice how Robert Smith was rocking the puffy kicks and skinny jeans look 17 years ago?  Just thought I’d point that out.
