Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #14 'I Fink U Freeky' by Die Antwoord

Now, for something completely different.  Die Antwoord are South African.  But they appear from another planet.  Easily the most rebarbitive, and obnoxiously weird group of people in the world at the moment, they combine the least settling aspects of inbreeding, mental illness, poverty, deformity, modern primitivism and Dadaism, to inflect their enraged, sexually ambiguous, and thrilling look and sound with the truly uncanny.  I can't think of a song or video this century so likely to amaze and appall in equal measure.  I admire them, find them fascinating.  Why are they not gods? 'I Fink U Freeky' is just plain amazing fun.
