Wiz Khalifa, 'Black and Yellow'

It's the Platonic Jock Jam. Inane place-holder lyrics? Check. Inescapably insistent chorus? Check. Danceable beat? Well, go get me another $14 Budweiser and I'll get back to you. It's even an ode to the colors of a sports team (his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers). But, of course, the Wiz's mega-hit's greatest Jock Jam strength is also its greatest flaw: a Jock Jam must be universal.  And unless you're a fan of one of the surprisingly small number of teams that fits the song's bi-color mandate – the Iowa Hawkeyes, for instance, or English football's Wolverhampton Wanderers – its resonance is blunted. Let's hope Lil Wayne's Packers-themed remix "Green and Yellow" spawns a rainbow of imitators.
