EDITOR’S NOTE: We had some trouble determining this week’s Best Link Ever!, so we’re going to let you decide. Take a look at the links below and cast your vote. Monday morning we’ll announce the winner!
Did you have any idea that Information Society was from Minneapolis and not England? I sure didn’t. Alas, this was the US response to the UK’s Flock of Seagulls and Culture Club, and their hit was about five years too late.
Their video makes this week’s Best Link Ever! voting list purely because I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head for, like, twenty-two years. Also, this video manages to look like it could have been made yesterday. In a loft somewhere in Bushwick.

Don’t you hate when its a hot, summer day in (insert hipster-y park here) and you’ve run out of ways to be subversive? Well, here’s something to try: Sign up for Spinning Bees’ ultimate frisbee summer camp today and get a heads up on what could be the next anti-trend, because if mullets could come back in the ’00s, who the hell knows what’s coming in the ’10s!
