Can someone please explain the love/interest for Die Antwoord?
The first time a friend showed me a couple of their YouTube videos a few years ago, I was drawn in by the sheer WTF factor and I thought it was hilarious. It was like Gummo meets NWA via South Africa. They've actually got some pretty crazy beats, but I can't take them seriously as rappers. I like to think that they only learned English by listening to gangster rap and don't really know what they're saying.

I'm sure she'll be great, I think I'm just still biased against her for Show Me Love since that's the only song I really know her for. Generally, female led R&B/Pop (no sexism intended) just doesn't do it for me. What I've heard of Röyksopp had me very excited for them, and I'm sure Robyn will just make it even better.
