GREEN ARROW SAID “THIS AIN’T NO DISCO.”
That right there made this a must buy issue. Those four words are a favorite phrase of my girlfriend and I, lifted from the classic Talking Heads song “Life During Wartime” and recycled in that Sheryl Crow song “All I Wanna Do.” Whatever happened to her?
Getting back to Green Arrow, I’ve read way too many comments calling for JT Krul’s head for this line of dialogue. And to that, I say your all crazy. You have to realize the context.
In this scene, he’s burst his way into some club (which probably serves overpriced but third rate mixed drinks) fighting some super powered villains. If you were in the crowd, you would be a little nervous.
So Green Arrow thought on the fly and decided to say something funny (albeit dated) to break the tension. It’s a lot like that episode of Family Guy where Peter is trying to use the “I’ll have what she’s having” catchphrase. The only difference is this actually worked
And to those who complained that its stupid to say something that literal, there’s something wrong with you. Green Arrow is somewhere in the 25-30 age bracket, so he’s never been to a disco. And he’s referencing the Talking Heads, which makes him cool in my book.
Anyway, here’s some fun “ain’t no disco” music to get you through your Saturday.
