Song Evolution, Fake Maraca City

In the early 1980's, Rick Rubin, the cofounder of Def-Jam Records, said that AC/DC and The Monkees were his greatest inspiration. He later went on to meld the newborn hip hop with rock, pioneering one of the last final frontiers in music. At least for now.

I've been looking at clips of the Monkees, and let's be real; These guys are assclowns. It is clear that they have no clue what they are doing, save for Davy Jones who is breaking the biggest sweat I've seen with THREE pairs of maracas.

It's amazing how that 1980's footage of Run-DMC looks worse than the 1960's Monkees footage.

The real question: Is Davy shaking those maracas or are those maracas shaking him?
