    Why have I never heard Superchunk before?

    Perhaps its because I confuse them with Supergrass, who I have heard, and don't really like tall that much. In any event.....

    The Streisand Effect for making smut popular goes back to at least the 13th Century. Theology and law students at University of Paris would gloss the notes of their professors' lectures with dirty limericks and stories, which they would then recite and sing. When the school authorities would bring them to trial the court rooms were packed and all the students (and faculty) would get off on the readings of the exhibits, then go write their own.

    Many of these stories were later adapted by Boccaccio in his 14th Century Decameron, which was banned by the Pope for obscenity, but that banning made it one of the biggest sellers of the Renaissance, particularly among upper class women, who would recite them to each other.

    Francois Villon later made all this immensely popular from his own student days in Paris, and was prosecuted for it and in turn went from being a local lout to a major literary figure of the 15th Century, with troubadours endlessly repeating his songs until they were finally printed by the new presses:

    I.
    WHOSO in love would bear the bell,
    Needs must he prank him gallantly,
    Swagger and ruffle it, bold and swell,
    And when to his lady’s sight comes he,
    Don cloth of gold and embroidery;
    For ladies liken a goodly show.
    This should serve well; but, by Marie,
    Not all can nick it that will, heigho!

    II.
    Once on a season in love I fell
    With a lady gracious and sweet to see,
    Who spoke me fair, that she liked me well
    And gladly would hearken to my plea,
    But first I must give to her for fee
    Fifty gold crowns, not less nor mo’.
    Fifty gold crowns?—O’ right good gree!
    Not all can nick it that will, heigho!

    III.
    To bed I went with the damsel
    And there four times right merrily
    I did to her what I may not tell
    In less than an hour and a half, perdie.
    Then with a failing voice said she,
    “Once more, I prithee! my heart is woe.”
    Once more, quotha, sweetheart? Ah me,
    Not all can nick it that will, heigho!

    ENVOI.
    Great God of love, I crave of thee,
    If ever again I lay her low,
    Ne’er let my lance untempered be,
    Not all can nick it that will, heigho!

    This blows me away: Suge is still only 56.

    Listening to WCLZ on the ride back from Vactionland to Massholia. I'm not necessarily their demographic, but boy, their playlist is outstanding and incredibly broad. Heard Lord Huron "Mine Forever" and can't stop going back to it. Rockabilly melded with surf rock, a dash of Chris Isaak. Nice and mellow late in the evening.
