"CVS Bangers" Is Truly the Greatest Mixtape of All Time

Posted By on Mon, Aug 12, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Sure, who wouldn't want to hear a thirty minute tribute to the music playing in the background at your local CVS, including tracks by Roxette, Paula Cole and the woman who sang that "I Love You Always Forever" song (Donna Lewis, maybe? Doesn't seem worth looking up, but I'm pretty sure she was on an episode of the original 90210). Plus, airhorns and gunshot sounds.

The ALL CAPS description from DJ HENNESSY YOUNGMAN (sure, of course):

CVS BANGERS IS THE AUDIOSCAPE FOR WHEN YOU'RE BUYING TAMPONS OR A 12 PACK OF CONDOMS, A SAMPLING OF THOSE MAGIC TUNES THAT PLAY WHEN YOU'RE CONTEMPLATING HOW RIDICULOUS YOU WOULD LOOK CARRYING 24 ROLLS OF TIOLET PAPER ON THE TRAIN, THOSE BITTERSWEET TUNES OF YESTERYEAR THAT SKIP THROUGH YOUR MIND AS YOU READ THE NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE BACK OF A BOX OF FROZEN PIZZA AND OPT FOR A PINT OF ICE CREAM INSTEAD, THOSE SPECIAL DITTIES THAT ACCOMPANY YOUR SMASHING THE BAR CODE OF A CAN OF RED BULL AGAINST THE SCANNER OF BROKEN SELF-CHECKOUT MACHINE. CVS BANGERS IS COMMERCE ITSELF, AND COMMERCE, MY FACELESS INTERNET FRIENDS, IS BEAUTIFUL.

Be sure to stick around to the 22 minute mark for the most accurate drop of all time.
