They care....well, not so much

If you're a fan of the Discovery Channel show Dirty Jobs, you know that they've used the Faith No More song "We Care A Lot" as the theme song since the beginning. It's perfect. The connection is made through the oft-repeated line, "It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it."

Of course, if you're a fan of the show, you already know that someone at the Discovery Channel fucked up, and good. They have apparently lost the rights to use "We Care A Lot" as their theme song, and have replaced it in new and old episodes with some boring-ass generic guitar crap. There is officially ZERO personality to the new stuff. It's terrible.

This is, quite frankly, an outrage. And what do you do in cases of outrage? Why, you write a sternly worded letter.


You know that [Dirty Jobs] has achieved pretty iconic status in the cable television universe. People know it. People are drawn to it. For crying out loud, get your act together, make your apologies to Faith No More, eat some crow, and pay them what they want for the rights to "We Care A Lot." It's what's best for the show, and for their band. Both entities benefit from the proper execution of that arrangement.

So, we'll see what happens. I encourage those of you who like Dirty Jobs to write the Discover Channel by going here. If we're gonna watch TV, we certainly should expect the people who make it to do it right. Jeez.
