Pretty much every current pop star, hip hop artist, or country band has a song called something to the effect of “This is how we do” or “How we do it” or “This is how we roll.” Well, whatever they’re doing, they’re doing too much of it. Historians believe it all started with the song “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan in 1995. I think that said pretty much all that needed to be said in the realm of teaching people how to “do it.” Then you’ve got a song from rapper The Game from 2004 called “How We Do.” Then Katy Perry releases a song called “This Is How We Do” in 2013. In 2014, American “bro-country” band (whatever the fuck that is) Florida Georgia Line released the song “This Is How We Roll” which was pretty much the same exact thing the Katy Perry song was just sung by rednecks. Look I get that everyone does and rolls differently and you want to share that with the world, but the fact of the matter is, none of these songs ever actually illustrate any idiosyncrasies particular to the songwriter. These songs always describe generic fun situations. Apparently if you want to “do it” like them you just hang out with your friends and go to parties. Okay, point taken. I think that’s understood. That is how we ALL DO. Now unless someone wants to show a different perspective and write a song about staying home eating Hot Pockets, watching “Rocko’s Modern Life,” and masturbating and calling that “This Is How I Do!” or sing an instructional song for potty training babies called “This Is How We Doo” I don’t want to hear any more of this redundant nonsense because it’s serving no purpose.
