In case you thought Lonely Island’s idea of an after party was as tame as Rebecca Black’s Friday night, here’s a sample lyric: “And after that, I meet my totem spirit / It’s a rattlesnake, so I have to kill it / Then I drink all his blood and steal his powers / And slither around in the dirt for hours.” The song is essentially one very long, rambling story about what happens after the after party, which eventually ends up including Tim McGraw.

We’re digging “After Party” even more than “We’re Back” and the title track, in large part thanks to Santigold’s lovely (but ludicrous) vocal contribution. These boys are at their best when the comedy and catchiness come in equal doses, as they do here.
Still, we plan to avoid any actual after parties with these guys. Maybe we’ll stick to light beer after all…
