Google Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

Top-shelf music blog Stereogum is where I go for my daily confirmation that stereotypical indie rockers are alive, well, and commenting on their site. Stereogum commenters get genuinely upset about Cat Power at Wal-Mart!

With Boris Yeltsin’s death this week, I knew that many of the site’s commenters would immediately think of the band Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. I thought this to be a smidge obnoxious. Little did I know that this still makes them smarter than the band’s fans themselves. Says the band’s singer:

We have a lot of younger people at our shows these days who don’t even know who Yeltsin is.

Hey future of America: name any two post-Soviet Russian presidents!

Still I should give The Boris Yeltsin Band more credit. Even Google thinks of them immediately. Not just in a search for “Boris Yeltsin”, but for the word “someone”!

A Google search for the word someone, with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin highlighted.

The words “somewhere” and “somehow” have already been locked up by The Moody Blues….
