Waka Flocka Flame

"Game On" (ft. Good Charlotte)

A far cry from the one-note brashness of his incredible debut Flockaveli, Waka Flocka Flame has proven that he's down for whatever. He's become a meme-making viral sensation and go-to EDM guy, and now he's collaborated with sentient Hot Topic clothing racks Good Charlotte on a song for a new Adam Sandler movie where Kevin James kills a Smurf. Life is full of strange and wonderful surprises.

"Game On" is just about as ridiculous as you could imagine. Waka barks the word "mosh" over and over again, and then the brothers Madden belt out an AutoTuned chorus about how this is not a game. It truly isn't — there's nothing fun about this.

The song develops into some strange sing-along, and then Waka delivers a verse atop some simple video game sounds. Nü-metal, alt-rock, chiptune, EDM and soft rock are somehow all represented at once in a rich tapestry of sound.

You owe it to yourself to listen to Waka Flocka Flame featuring Good Charlotte.
