In The Year 2525: Phillies at Marlins Game Thread, September 24, 2013

In which I invite you to listen to the greatest bad song of all time.

Have any of you ever heard the song "In The Year 2525" by Zeager and Evans?

It was released in 1969 and is widely considered to be one of the worst songs to ever reach number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, if not one of the worst songs of all time. The duo never had another chart hit ever again and disbanded just a few years later. (Though the fact that their follow-up song was, according to Wikipedia, "about a rapist who nails his own wrist to the wall as punishment for his crime" may have had something to do with that.)

Why am I bringing this up? Why did I embed a video of one of the stupidest songs ever written? (Seriously look at these lyrics. They are unbelievably terrible.) Because if you play "In The Year 2525" tonight while Zach Miner is starting (he's STARTING), a portal to hell will open up and Cthulhu will personally greet you and offer you tea and cookies. What does he do after that? Well, that's up to you, isn't it?
