The Funny Lyrics:
There was U2, and Blondie, and music still on MTV
Why They're funny:
I find it funny that BFS chooses to symbolize the year 1985 with the bands U2 and Blondie. By '85, Blondie wasn't charting any more hits, as that band had already gone their separate ways (until reuniting in the late 90's for the single "Maria", but that's another matter), and U2 was just getting started. Of course, U2 *was* active on the music scene, but other bands/artists were successful as well (and they still were in 2004, when this song was written). As for MTV, sure, it was televising music, which is good, but the channel had been launched only four years beforehand. It wasn't until the 90's when it began to have less and less musical content.
