The Audacity of Rock: Part 26

Stealing girls from guys.

It's a well documented fact that the presence of a guitar instantly makes a guy 7x more attractive than without. Apparently it's so attractive that women may leave their boyfriends for such talented guys. Level of talent needed to impress a girl: 3 chords, probably in the key of D.

"You're Gonna Lose that Girl" by The Beatles (1965)

Dude. It's the Help!-era Beatles. Of course your girl is going to leave you for one of them. Even Ringo. Just give up.

"Grand Theft Autumn/Where is Your Boy" by Fall Out Boy (2003)

If I had heard of them before summer 2005 when "Sugar, We're Going Down" was their breakout hit and my Cold Stone manager incessantly played "Grand Theft Autumn/Where is Your Boy" at closing time, I may have been a big fan. But alas, I was over the age of 15. But you have to admit that early Fall Out Boy was kind of adorable. No one was wearing eyeliner or casting their across their eyes. Plus, they're totally going to steal your girlfriend. Because they play guitar in a pop rock band.

Questions to ponder:

1. Is there really a good time besides a campfire to pull out your guitar in public?
2. What song makes you want to punch a guy in the face for playing?

  1. To answer your 2nd question: "Hey There Delilah" [Plain White Tees]
    For some reason, every boy in Happy Valley thinks this is the song that'll make the girls swoon--gag me!
