I'm not a Ryan Adams fan. I know of him as I write about music and therefore spend my days combing many different websites - but I don't love him. In fact, I very rarely think of him at all...until now. It seems Mr. Adams has written a "hair metal parody" called "The Awl (Hair Metal Version)."
The song is in honor of some new website called The Awl, for which Adams also writes. Apparently, the tune is supposed to be funny but I failed to laugh. I sort of liken the tune to nails on a chalkboard.
