Koka Kola is great, it's like an unhinged jingle.
Of course I use Zildjian, this is serious music.

Exactly. It also sounds like the feeling off too much cocaine. Great lyrics, catchy melody and an interesting concept.
Stand me straight against the nearest wall
Line up your bravest soldiers oh

In five years a bunch of you will be rehabilitating Boogie with Your Children.
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

Boogie With Your Children is a great tune. If you don't like it, you must hate fun and be a bad person.

Observation and question: why does Mick, in the last several years, always sound like he has a stuffy nose or a cold when he talks? Is this something to do with his serious late '80s illness?

And I might as well ask - why does he always sound like he's about to burst into laughter as well?
