I've heard Handlebars by the Flobots before, but it's been relatively sporadic so that I never knew who sang it, and yet it made me happy every time I heard it. It's a really great song and because of it I've downloaded the rest of their album. I can only hope that the rest of it is as good as this song, but really, it HAS to be - here's why: They're unusual. It's alternative rock/rap music featuring two emcees, violist, jazz/funk trumpet player, guitarist, bassist, and drummer, who play politically and socially charged music.

For your consideration, Handlebars.

This song rocks! Can't wait to listen to the rest of the album.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, I can ride a bike with no handlebars, too. And take apart the remote control and almost put it back together. And tie a knot in a cherry stem. And I know all the words to I'm Proud to be an American.

And I can keep rhythm with no metronome.
No metronome.
No metronome.

End Blog.
