Music

Give or take Jon Spencer's worthless piece of blackface bullshit (not nearly as entertaining as David Allan Coe's blackface bullshit on his long-lost prison album, which involves a last-meal gris-gris gumbo of spider eyeballs and fried anteater and jungle roots), Jessica Simpson's smash Nancy Sinatra cover is the lamest track on The Dukes of Hazzard, which is otherwise an excellent if obvious redneck-rock sampler. Which isn't to deny that "Boots" is quite the montage; it's just that Britney did it better in her "I Got That (Boom Boom)" Ying Yang and banjo collab last year. Plus Ram Jam's extended "Black Betty" has a way more intricate and surprising hoedown in the middle, and whoever decided to include it on the same soundtrack where a Charlie Daniels Band cut turns into Glenn Miller halfway through is some kind of evil genius.
