Need a song of the day? How about a Song Of The Summer? Keep up with HitFix daily for your music fix.
I mean, it's got the word “summer” in its very title. It's Maroon 5, who've never seen a season full of scantily clad women that they didn't like.
“This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf***er” is almost like an anti-summer song — not just in its shady synths and ominous name. Check out some of the lyrics, which almost seem to mock last summer's crown victor, Iggy Azalea's “Fancy.”
Furthermore, singer Adam Levine seems distraught over the fact that he's hot for a vapid girl who's bound to blue-ball-bomb his solstice, but he just. can't. help. himself.
This sounds more like an Ellie Goulding tune, but Levine delivers a bitter falsetto instead. Prepare ye for a long motherf***ing summer of hearing this irresistible song over and over.
Maroon 5 is on tour in Europe all summer.
