    I wonder if she is getting royalties. :hmm:

    "Can Britney Spears ward off a group of swashbuckling pirates? According to the British Royal Navy, the answer is aye aye, Captain.
    The "Toxic" singer's catchy early hits like "Oops! I Did It Again" and "...Baby One More Time" have been used by naval officers to ward off Somali pirates off the east coast of Africa.
    "Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most," Merchant Navy Second Officer Rachel Owens, who works on supertankers, told Metro UK."

    That has to be illegal.

    I'm all for stopping piracy, but they still have basic human rights!

    That's frightening. Weaponized pop music. Weapons of Musical Destruction.

    Anyone who calls Radiohead 'techno' loses their credibility regarding that opinion. Have you ever listened to either of those things?

    I don't know what Britney was specifically singing about but is it wrong to think about a blonde teenager soiling her panties?.

    At last, she's finally good for something besides being America's best known piece of white trash that made it big.

    That played at the required volume, LOUD, should sink the pirates boats.
    I gave you a like, although I am surprised given your avatar, that you didn't embed the clip from the Young Ones.

    After hearing that, they probably turned around and shot themselves?
