Songs of Undependability

by Dan Weiss  |  March 23, 2014

Rock 'n' roll is the greatest medium to express total disregard for others. Or as Let's Wrestle put it in their catchiest song: "I was gonna help out/ I forgot." Sometimes this is the result of emotional devastation, like in Schoolboy Q's Portishead-sampling "Prescription/Oxymoron," where he screens calls from his own daughter while waiting for his dealer to ring. Other times it's Eminem trying to figure out how to save a girl who overdosed on his shrooms ("My Fault"), Blink-182's ADD foiling their sexcapades ("What's My Age Again?") or Tyler, the Creator proclaiming he's not a role model to his therapist, who bellows back "I know this" ("Goblin"). From Nirvana's lack of utility to LL Cool J's three-timing and Afroman's covert drug PSA warning, here's a bunch of songs you just shouldn't trust.
