Starship Builds A City On Schlock & Roll
When: August 30th, 1985
"We Built This City" topped Billboard's pop charts in November 1985, evidence of the judgment-impairing effects of using cocaine. It was sampled 18 years later by Harlem rap group the Diplomats for their song, "Built This City," evidence of the judgment-impairing effects of bragging about selling cocaine. Finally, in 2004, the editors of Blender magazine got it right, naming it the worst of song of all-time. And through it all, Marconi still plays the mamba.
