Remember when you were a kid and you would mix all the fountain sodas together into one monstrosity of a drink called a "Suicide" (or whatever it was called where you're from). As an adult you probably realize that the end result was something less-than-greater than the sum of its parts, no matter how good Mountain Dew and Big Red taste on their own.

Now, we're not trying to compare Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's eponymous new single to harakiri, but... have you heard it? The 50-second clip posted to TMZ earlier this week basically sounds like the Aqua Netted orange reality star and collaborators Fatman Scoop, DJ Class, The Disco Fries tried to cram every studio effect at their disposal into three minutes of an already tiresome dance track. The end result is very much akin to... dare we say it... a musical Suicide.

By what we can tell from the brief snippet, he doesn't even mention his abs, although he'll no doubt perform the full version of the song Saturday night, when he DJs at Rich's. iTunes even tells us there and explicit version AND an instrumental version. Can. Not. Wait.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
