  2. ….Why does Jump by Van Halen give me such Sonic the hedgehog vibes. Like I swear I heard this from the old Sega game or something.

  3. Plays Van Halen’s most famous and recognizable song, “this is Van Halen?! Really?!” Acts like it sounds nothing like Van Halen. Good grief kids.

  4. I don't, obviously, know where Sabrina's family historically is from, but if anyone asked me to picture the most Irish woman I could imagine, it would be someone looking like her, I think.

  5. "I love listening to early rap because you can listen to it evolve"

    And then listen to it devolve with whatever the hell they're mumbling now.
