Hold On.

One of the first instruments most of us ever picked up was a recorder. The dumbed down flute/clarinet hybrid was and is the worst thing to ever happen to music, bagpipes be damned. Or is it?

Much in the same way a double negative becomes a positive, sometimes, something can get so shitty that it actually starts to be good. When pop songs are played on the thing, the results are often hilariously compelling.

On the other hand, some things are exactly as they seem on the surface. This week, for instance, looks to be an absolutely killer one. Check out the following list and you'll know exactly what we mean.
