I’m not here to try and paint a picture that says that the East Lansing- or Detroit- or Flint-based band (or wherever they were from) that played music in public places around East Lansing throughout the early 1990s, “Goober & The Peas,” was a really, really crummy and ghastly group of nitwits.

All I’m here to do is paint a picture that illustrates that the individuals who decided to dress up in really dreadful and stupid outfits and play horrid music were extremely bad at entertaining people and were quite good at making people despondent and irritated.

The tangibly (and indisputably) bad choice made by the band members to wear clothes that seemed to try to represent a satirical bent on a hill-billyish type of vibe made any person who was in a place where this band was performing in these outfits want to throw things at the faces and bodies of the band members.

This is to say nothing of the actual music that this group of dolts performed.

The music was abominable.

I actually went to the Wikipedia page for “Goober & The Peas” and, after resisting the urge to vomit at the notion that there actually is a Wikipedia page for “Goober & The Peas,” I saw that the “genre” of music that this collection of ghouls “played” is labeled as “cowpunk.”

I’m a pretty big fan of music and I don’t know that I’ve ever seen or heard of a genre of music called “cowpunk.”

Maybe that just makes me a simpleton.

The word is actually appropriate in the way it crystalizes the “sound” that “Goober & The Peas” created when they played their instruments and attempted to sing along to the playing of the instruments.

I do not know what the names are of the band members and I have no interest in finding out their names.

Perhaps they’re wonderful persons.

Perhaps they’re also narcissistic donkeys.

My interests related to “Goober & The Peas” are limited to wanting to drive the proper narrative regarding the quality of the artistry, creativity, and legitimacy of the group.

Having said that, the proper narrative is that this music act should be forever remembered by anyone who had the bad luck of experiencing its existence as putrid.

Here is a video that this group of people created that makes it impossible for anyone to argue what I’ve stated here in this piece of writing.

Thank you.
