Knicks Owner Jim Polan Pens New Song About Trayvon Martin Murder
Did you know New York Knicks owner Jim Dolan is also the lead singer in a band? Well, he is….and one his latest songs has people talking.
New York Knicks owner and”JD & the Straight Shot” frontman Jim Dolan is bored with ruining the Knicks. His next project: Ruining music.
Dolan seems to fancy himself a truth-tellin’, rock-n-rollin’ troubadour à la Neil Young, and his new song “Under That Hood”—premiered at the New York Times—is his “Ohio”: The tale of an unconscionable killing, told bluntly, with lots of vocal harmonies.
The Trayvon Martin-referencing tune differs from “Ohio” in one key aspect: It is bad. It is very bad. From the lyrics to the phrasing to the harmonica fart sounds that penetrate the third verse, everything about it is bad. Its closest analogue…an Applebee’s jingle?
Twitter user Kevin Draper posted the song’s lyrics. Check them out below:
