This was the deliberate mistake on the universally celebrated ATD17: The John Hughes Mixtape. The no prize goes to @LeigonAOD, who posted the following on Twitter:

LegionAOD and the no-Prize… for @akirathedon St Elmo’s Fire wasn’t a John Hughes flick :-)


So why have I jacked Cliff Chang’s amazing Breakfast Club/Teen Titans mash-up for the art?

I thought it looked really cool.

I mean, it does, right?


OK. Enjoy. This weekend we’re filmingthe party and lab scenes for my zombie flick, so that’s gonna keep me busy. There’ll be a report from that on Adam Walton’s show on Sunday, so keep that locked. Oh, and send me photos of you wearing your Don Shoes!-  akirathedon at googlemail.com  – They should be arriving about now. Martin Carr got his.

4 weeks off the ciggs
she said try slow down like giggs
I already tried that style
ask Mothboy
cant play that shit now
too personal, heh
irreversible, yeah
mp3s wont die
and neither will I
I belive I can fly
at least i belive I belive i can fly
I know an old lady who swallowed that lie
Another summer gone number than your gums gone
when you were young, once
I was a chrysalis also
I hacked at the torso
She wanted money for the band
He wanted something just to show
Aint expect him to understand
Aint even wanted h er to go
She said pop culture refrences
Will date your shit like Futurama
He said fie that bullcrap
I that bratpack
Ask Amanda Palmer!
you can never go back
why would you wanna bother anyway?
like those fucking medieval recreationists
fight your own battles
I fought the war at home
hunched over this 25 pound Ikea desk
I am the best
dressed to repress in an old white vest
with an s on the chest in a mess and I'm blessed
with the melody
nothing more nothing less anyway
anything left for the rest that's a felony
I'm going
dunno where
fuck it baby

    Like “A-HAAAA”, great idea? Or “A-HAAAA”, that’s terrible? (I like the first one better, personally).

    Thank you so much!! Awesome track… Not only does it contain the words “IKEA”, “Futurama” and “Amanda Palmer” – it also functions as an acoustic cheerleader whenever you’re in a bad mood.
