Yes, really. The Swedish pop star Basshunter, whom some of you may remember as the guy who said “”I like very much to use my penis” when sexy pictures of him came out a few months ago (link NSFW), has a new single out in the UK, and it’s already been christened the worst song of 2008 by the Popjustice folk. That’s probably because said song is a remake KC and the Sunshine Band’s “Please Don’t Go” that sounds like it’s had the beat from “Rock And Roll Part 2″ grafted onto it, creating a slightly dizzying-in-a-bad-way stomp. I’m mainly posting this as a public service–I have a nagging feeling that this version’s bludgeoning beat will be blaring out of many sports-arena speakers within the next few weeks, and you all should be warned–and as an excuse to post both the original and KWS’ 1992 cover of the track. Those are after the jump.

Insert my now-standard “I miss the ’90s” lament here.
