You don't know us, you don't belong

The commercial was for some sort of a feminine hygiene product. I've blocked it out now. But what I couldn't block out was the song that this poppy, soft, girl group was singing in the background. It was that old heavy metal chestnut "We're Not Gonna Take It."


Got that? "We're Not Gonna Take It" has become the soundtrack for, like, maxi pads. Ugh. Granted, Dee Snider had purty hair and enough makeup to single-handedly keep L'Oreal afloat. That song was about rock 'n' roll rebellion and had nothing -- repeat, nothing -- to do with keeping Aunt Flo outta the house.

(Shudder.)

The twisted sisters responsible for this are apparently Australian twins called The Veronicas. We hate them, got it?
