Andrew W.K. Won't Be a U.S. Ambassador After All

Man I admit I loved that party hard song, but if you've heard any of Andrew's other songs you just grow more and more incredulous untill you can't determine whether he is for real or some kind of immensely clever parody like the characters of Sacha Baron Cohen.

I remember seeing that guy in a 5SF. He was pretty good.

I seriously didn't know this dude still made music or did anything. I saw him at an Ozzfest and he essentially got boo'd off of the stage. When your fame is "ironic" fame you can't expect it to last very long.

EDIT: This seems relevant.

Thank god. I know the idea is to spread a positive message and by extension make the whole of the US look better, but having someone represent the US who is the antithesis of their own culture was just a terrible idea. And he isn't exactly what I would call a good musician/lyricist/singer.

Hah wow. I didn't even know this was a thing. If only it was real, he's such a cool and nice dude from the interviews I've seen. PARTY PARTY PARTY

And the world was briefly brighter, before once again the American government dashed our hopes and dreams. :(

I think the last thing we need is Andrew WK being the US cultural ambassador.

The greatest American, nay WORLD musician to come out in the last thirty years of music and the US government just shits all over him. This is truly the day the music died.

Wow, so the whole thing turned out to be a mistake and the goverment rescinded the invitation?

How... A.W.K.-ward.

Noted musician

you lost me right there

I admit it would have been pretty funny to see what would have happened if this was actually real.

In all seriousness, Andrew WK is still a thing? I thought we forgot about him after his one hit. It was a decent song, not anything special and honestly kind of funny. Also, I can't be the only one who thinks he looks like John Romero. Please tell me I'm not crazy.

Just look at the two of them:

Yes, because the problems in the middle east all stem from their lack of repetitive shitty retard music, hangovers, and that tasteless gimp giving everyone the thumbs up.

Seriously America, seeeriousssssleeeeee!

Listen dudes, I'm from the UK and remember Andrew W.K. he made a song about getting the party started, then immediately released a follow up single that sounded exactly the same. That's it, game over - that's how the rest of the world see him, we see him as an idiot who might force us to party harty, get the party started, fight for their right to party, or some other horrific activity that nobody will enjoy... see to enjoy a party, let alone enjoy a party with that WK tosspot, you'd have to drink, a lot... and Muslims can't drink - is AWK even aware of that!

As part of "the rest of the world" and someone else from the UK, I completely disagree.

Have you been on any other forums recently? The music forum I venture to regularly is just full Andrew W K appreciation. That might be your opinion, but please don't try and coin it off as everyone's, he's known for more than just his music.

So my opinion is wrong because your opinion is different?

I see how that works. I visit a few other forums, and all of them are pretty much deviod of any real appreciation for AWK, what can I tell you!. I did see an episode of LA Ink (I think) where he got a tattoo of a straight line, can't say it made me think any more highly of him.

Nice straw-man.

His official statement sounds like he's not sure whether or not it's a prank.

Nowhere did they state that.

They said that you cannot claim to speak for them. Which you did with the phrase:

See the difference?

You see him as an idiot. You cannot claim to speak for the rest of the world.

That is not saying that your opinion of him is wrong in any shape or form.

And so western civilization crumbles.
