Give me a vision when I got none
and thunderbolts in each hand of my own
for I'm comin' back to level
Everything they taught us wrong

With a crave for for panacea
World is crawlin' on all fours
In a search of a new prayer
Gods are throwin' thunderbolts

So dub it like toyarisch would
Dub it like a best friend could
Dub it like a brother would
Onto Transmigration!

I need leads how to keep going
On the trail of ultimate from the streets to the subconscious
from subconscious to the God

Master tell me how come everything they taught us
Always seems to be so god damn wrong
In the meantime music from the tiny island
Takes over the world

Frequencies of love
Gather round, oh come on
Frequencies of love
Overcome, overthrow!

So dub it like tovarisch could
Say it like a brother would
Hold me like a mother would
Onto transmigration

Ha! I psd'd Grateful Dead and landed here.  First blush: meh.
Perhaps the least popular song in a stable playlist. {#Stupid}

Help. PSD isn't working. I can't take this much longer.

Rowdy ,,,you mean like when you're in a fist fight and someone pokes you in the eye?
I suppose if the average is a 4.2 that qualifies it as "Acceptable" and therefore we will have to continue enduring this horrible arrangement of sound.
This is aweful
Oof dah!!!
Funny, I look back and I disliked this set on January 28th,,,,and I still dislike it today.
 
Rowdy!

Holy cow ... I thought that was never going to end.

Thank you Van for the much-needed palette cleanser.



 
{#No} stop it!
Pleeeereease make it stop!!!!
Rarely who from East Europe or Balkans likes "Gogol Bordello", it is so phony that only Madonna could promote it...


Another amazing band that rp introduced me to.
"Michael Jackson is the most premium dancer"
Maybe OK live on stage, but it hurts my ears now.
Is it over yet or what?
seriously,,, 
A couple of groups in Québec and France sound similar.  At least in terms of vocal style.
awesome set,,,,,,
Saw these guys live and it was an amazing show, but translated to a non-live environment?

Doesn't work, the lead singers voice is quite honestly, terrible. However, his stage performance is totally electric - worth checking out live! 
Fecking BRILLIANT! {#Drummer}{#Dancingbanana}{#Clap}{#Bananapiano}{#Bananasplit}{#Bananajam}{#Drummer}

I'd accept a PASBTGATO (Play Another Song By These Guys After This One) button.

For those who can appreciate the mayhem, humor, and general fun of these guys, try the album "Gypsy Punks: Underground World Strike".  It's their best. 
You're welcome.

Lol..well it made me look up and check it out. I'll give a 5 for that.

Nice comment {#Lol}. That'll be Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, whose best ever performance was "Revenge of the Nerds" at a Star Wars premiere. It makes me weep with laughter.
Absolute tripe.

"Hey guys, let's sell this b.s. to the rubes, and make 'em believe that it's true gypsy music. We'll make millions. Millions!" 
Bill is going quite worldly in the last 4, with a slightly Eastern European feel

Yoav — Yellowbrite Smile
Los Straitjackets — The Casbah
Notorious — Romanian Train Song
Gogol Bordello — Dub The Frequencies Of Love
Simply ghastly.   So much so it broke my concentration working with it's aural hideousness.  Have to switch off....
Great Balkan segue from Notorious! I'd love to see this bunch of bonkers Balkanites live - more fun than a barrelful of monkeys :o)
Surprised to hear Gogol Bordello on RP!  While I'm not a huge fan of them, their music is just a little too silly for me, I appreciate the diversity displayed here.

Best comment. He descends into a guttural snarl that holds no attraction for me. But their song about how there's no fun allowed in town: Now that's great.


I had a problem with a Joni Mitchell song from yesterday or maybe any day..what a gutsy play...no major complaints!..personal preference at a personnel time..I guess that its why I choose this station over my own catalog..very nice
Uncanny resemblance to that song from the South Park episode where everyone is ninjas.
 This? This is tame.
Last night I was at a concert which turned into a Ukulele fest - it was a lot weirder than this.
this is disgusting 
5 for the cover + 1 for the song + 2 for the craziness. Yep, a solid 8.
This is just horrible. First song on Radio Paradise that I really didn't like.

Damn there's no PSD on my iTV. This is like Borat rock.
this guy was great in "Everything Is Illuminated"!
Glad to see that Gogol made it on air in RP! Awesome Bill, we want more of them, they have excellent songs!!
Too bad that many listeners do not appreciate their style. Very good for us in Europe though, they have a very big fan base around here :)
Don't ever stop playing these guys. No matter what the haters say. 
There is NO mistaking a Gogol Bordello song.
Great bonkers Balkanites! Worthy successors to the little-known but much-lamented (by the Nottingham jury, at least) 3 Mustaphas 3. This lot are more bananas than Fyffes, more nuts than Planters, more bonkers than a swingers club. Great craic in a Balkan stylee. 7 from the Nottingham jury.
This is not what you want to hear at 8:30 a.m. at the office —
i feel like I should be at a raucous kitchen party staring into the bottom of an empty vodka bottle instead {#Sick}
Please, please, please stop playing this horrible band. Please?
this song has a rating of 4 - there is a reason for that.  It sucks and its horrible.  
Somebody drive an ice pick into my ears, please.

The very wonderful American Wedding.. how many other songs namecheck 'marinated herring' and 'Donald Trump'?

Have you ever been to American wedding? 

Where is the vodka, where's marinated herring? 
Where is the supply that gonna last three days? 
Where is the band that like Fanfare. 
Gonna keep it goin' 24 hours 

Ta-tar-ranta-ta-ta 
Super taran-ta taran-ta ran-ta ta 

Instead it's one in the mornin' 
and DJ is patchin' up the cords 
Everybody's full of cake 
Staring at the floor 
Proper couples start to wonder 
That it's time to do 
People gotta get up early 
Yep, they gotta go 
People gotta get up early 
And she'd gotta boyfriend 
And this whole fucking thing 
Is just a one huge disappointment 

Ta-tar-ran-ta 

Nothing gets these people going 
not even Gypsy Kings 
nobody talks about my Supertheory 
of Supereverythings! 
SO be you Donald Trump 
Or be an anarchist 
Make sure that your wedding 
Doesn't end up like this 

I understand the cultures of a different kind 
But here word celebration just doesn't come to mind

He stood and talked to the cashier like he was from the neighborhood. he had a stack of cd's as long as his arm so there was time to chat. awesome show!!
 
I'm with you on this... they are the most awesome band live,,, saw them a year or so ago and loved it!

But what's interesting is that it was this track, which was on the cover mount CD of the UK's very wonderful Uncut magazine, that first alerted me to GB - funny how one person hears something and is drawn to it whilst others are totally turned off - but wouldn't it be dull if we all had the same taste?

 
Thank God for the PSD button.

But its an acquired taste and if you have not seen his stage presence I can see why this is rated so low.
 
+1 Saw them live last spring - excellent!

I see the ratings, but I'd much rather hear this than anyone named Marley!
I have finally figured this out - like all public-facing servers, I'm sure the streaming devices at RP occasionally suffer from overload as more and more people log on to listen.

So Bill plays some Gogol Bordello, causing hundreds if not thousands of people to immediately switch to Soma or some other streaming music service.

Overload problem solved . . .  
I don't mind the music as much as I mind the incredibly inane album art.
Blergh.

I love these guys!  For anyone who doesn't "get it", check out the documentary "Non-Stop" which is available on Netflix streaming.

A synopsis:  "Fusing the instrumental approach of Eastern European gypsy music with the energy and attitude of punk rock, Gogol Bordello is one of the most unusual success stories of pop music in the new millennium, and Eugene Hutz hardly has the background of a typical rock frontman. Born near Kiev in 1972, Hutz and his family fled the Ukraine after the disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in 1986, and they made their way through Eastern Europe as refugees before coming to America in 1990. After playing with local bands in Vermont, Hutz relocated to New York City in 1997. While working as a DJ at downtown clubs, he began meeting fellow expatriate musicians, and in 1999 Gogol Bordello was formed. Gogol Bordello's frantic live shows earned the band a loyal following both at home and on the road, and their third album, 2005's Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike became a major independent success. Filmmaker Margarita Jimeno followed the band on the road for several months, and the result was Gogol Bordello Non-Stop, a documentary which looks at the group's colorful history and rigorous schedule as well as offering a look at the high-energy live show that's made them famous. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi"
THIS AWFUL!!!!  Come on Bill!
_Terrible!
I know I "shouldn't" like this group, but I really do.  It's like how I feel with most Beck or White Stripes songs...strange stuff, but it just grabs you (well, me anyway).
saw a concert vid of these guys (maybe a bonarroo set?) and it was AMAZING. i would love to see them live.
An amazing band. Always passionate...
Just plain bad, Bill.  86 it!

The members of Squirrel Nut Zippers are still active in music projects, just rarely performing together anymore.
 I don't find this song to be as repulsive as most here seem to.   Whatever.
Terrible....up there with most of Yoko's "music"

I'm happy I was able to up the rating a tiny bit.  I have been a casual fan of Gogol Bordello for a while.  Love the energy of the band.

They did a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR.  I guess it was pretty early in the morning, but the band all brought their own "coffee".

Lots and lots of liquor.    

And followed by someone called Poe with a sing titled 'Terrible Thought'  - how appropriate - a totally forgettable little ditty that the consensus of opinion gives a 7.... just goes to show!
Hey come on!!  Seriously!! What is it that you guys don't get about this?

Love the band, love the album, and they are phenomenal as a live act....

Nice to be in a minority - I'm giving it a 10 just to redress the balance a little! 
And how many bands can boast of having a 'Supertheory of Superverything'?
Gotta agree with the consensus here: haven't liked anything I've heard from them.
I guess RP is setting out to prove that when you declare a song to be the worst, there is always something out there that is really BAD.
Terrible

True, but there are artists who don't take themselves too seriously, and still make good music.  Cake, Weezer, Frank Zappa.  Music with a smirk.
Keep playing 'em Bill.  I've liked every track you've played, so I guess I'll have to buy the albums now...
<3

Wait, I did that wrong.  What I meant was <  3, i.e. 2.   Maybe even a 1.
Thank God there is the PSD button. When will this song finally be removed from the list?  Horrible!
WTF
Love the accent. Love the way this song gets played despite the incredibly low ratings. Just Bill doing his own thing...

The album cover is the most serious thing about them.

And it's bloody awful.
Borat sings?  Who knew?  Or maybe not.  A 2.  {#Eek}
Excellent choice Bill, not many songs that can spark the diversity of comments seen here ;-)

They don't take themselves seriously, and guess what? Neither do I. SUCK O BARFO  for sure.
Possibly the first time I ever had to turn off RP.  Wow!  Brutal.
