Original Song: The Spinners "Rubberband Man" (1976)

Detroit's zaniest disco-metal sorta-joking-sorta-not band of the 21st Century—one of the past decade's most consistent rock bands, really, even if only one member is constant and indie websites tend to either ignore or dismiss them—locates subliminal stompology in the biggest pop-soul hit ever about a short fat guy who plays music with a rubberband on his toes. Frantic, ridiculous, hilarious.
