According to the National Post, a man from Alberta, Canada, who was charged with impaired driving and refusing to take a breathalyzer test, has become somewhat of a viral internet hit with his rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, sang in its entirety, and recorded by a video camera while he was in the back of an Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser. The singing begins around the 30 second mark.
We at NotTheWorstNews can’t help but wonder if its wise to sing a song with lyrics “Mama, I just killed a man, Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger now he’s dead,” in a police cruiser! Still, it could be worse, which is obviously why you’re reading NotTheWorstNews.
3 Worse Songs To Sing From The Back Of An RCMP Police Cruiser
1. Dead Horse by Guns N’ Roses. This song features the lyric: “Sometimes I feel like I’m beatin’ a dead horse.” The RCMP loves horses so much that they have chosen a name that reminds us they are mounted on them! And if they’re driving some drunk around in a cruiser, that obviously means less quality time riding their horse, which the drunk would be reminding them of by singing this song. This would be especially bad, if they’re riding in a cruiser because their horses have succumbed to colic.
2. Cop Killer by Ice-T/Body Count. Obviously a bad choice for cruiser karaoke due to its offensive lyrics, especially to police officers, and also more likely to make people hit the “thumbs down” button when it inevitably goes viral on You Tube.
3. We Built This City by Starship. This is a bad choice to sing anywhere, after being named the worst single of all time by Blender. Especially if you get an additional charge for obstruction of justice by lying to the police, when your Alberta city was not built on Rock ‘N Roll, as suggested in the song, but in fact was built on bedrock, with no bread rolls to be seen anywhere.
