The Rebel Black Dot Girlfriend Song o' the Day

Barenaked Ladies, "Alternative Girlfriend" from Maybe You Should Drive (The Last Angry Man)

Commentary: The above photograph is of Fox News's resident Millennial, Katherine "Kat" Timpf, costumed as a stereotypical member of Generation X, appropriate to the era in which B.N.L. wrote & released "Alternative Girlfriend."

"You're in an all-girl band,
Your futon's second-hand,
