exn

Korean artists EXN (을씨년) and lIlBOI (릴보이) recently released the best hamburger song of 2022, a funky number that encapluates the true essence of the Gen Z era, a true love-hate relationship between a girl and her hamburger.  

Who Are They?

EXN (을씨년), born Joo Hee-won (주희원) is a South Korean rapper who debuted under Unusual Sound in 2021.11  

Whiel Lil Boi (릴보이; stylized as lIlBOI), born Oh Seung-taek (오승택) is a South Korean rapper who debuted under GRDL as a member of Geeks in 2011. He later debuted as a solo artist in 2018.12  

Hamburger Song

On the outside, the song itself sounds like an inner battle between a woman and her love of hamburgers.  However, when you dive deeper into the lyrics, it becomes clear that it could represent any type of social connection, one where love and hate co-exist side by side.  That's why the track is so relatable.  Who hasn't experienced those kind of feelings and emotions at some point in life?  

This song could easily be an anthem for all love-hate relationships, one that is shared by people of every identity, whether it's flesh and blood or just a burger.  Yet, in all honesty, and partially due to our never-ending devotion for sandwiches both big and small, we truly hope her and the hamburger ride bilissfuly into the sunset together.  

Sandwich is life.  Sandwich is forever.  

Regardless of its meaning, one thing is certain, it's easily the best Hamburger song of the year!

sloppy joes devils music

Let's be honest, it's hard to place Sloppy Joe's in any specific category.  They define themselves as upcomers in the New Wave Of Classic Rock, yet they cover songs by Paul Anka, Billy Ocean, and Tom Jones.  This is not your typical Hard Rock Band.  

However, while Sloppy Joe's pays homage to the classics, many of their best songs are original, fast-paced, day-tripping, high adrenaline rockers.  Tracks such as Devil's Music, The Journey, and Mirror are so intense, they will set your speakers on fire.    

In order to understand the range and depth of Sloppy Joe's music, Last Sandwich decided to rank the Top 25 Songs By Sloppy Joe's, and then display it in the chart below.  We've also included a column which shows the original singer of each cover song.

The band's most recent album is titled "Devil's Music", and contains mostly hard rocking numbers set to max on the volume dial.  However, one of the best songs is a power balled called "Means So Much".

Means So Much by Sloppy Joe's



One of Sloppy Joe's best covers is an amped up version of Don Gibson's Country Music Hit, "Lonesome Number One".   A classic from 1961, you start to realize that Sloppy Joe's may be a rock band that even a Grandmother could love.  

Lonesome No. 1 by Sloppy Joe's



Just for some comparison, please listen to Gibson's original Country Western version.

Another great cover, which sounds even better than the Don William's original, is Sloppy Joe's version of "Some Broken Hearts Never Mend".

We've included links to their most recent album below.

Basketball legend Allen Iverson once told his fans they could always say "my man is solidified" after he was enshrined into the NBA Hall Of Fame.  When it comes to the Rap Game, MC Hotdog is "solidified" as they come.    

In some ways, the two global icons have a lot in common.  Iverson was the underdog, the overachiever, the misunderstood; and had the most loyal fans in the NBA.  Much like Iverson, MC Hotdog is fighting his own battles, as his newest music videos are slowly scraping and clawing up the Youtube Trending charts. 

With new MVs such as Sugar Mommy (阿姨), Lab Rats (白老鼠), and They Ain’t Rappers At All (他們根本不是Rapper), MC Hotdog is showing that he's still at the top of his game.  

So, in order to erase any future doubts, Last Sandwich wants to present this esteemed rapper a special award.  We would like to officially recognize MC HotDog (熱狗) as "Sandwich Rock Solidified".  From this day forward, let there be no question who is the G.O.A.T. of Taiwanese Rap.  

MC Hotdog fans around the world can now say, "my man is sandwich rock solidified."

Latest Music Videos

Let's take a look at one of his most recent songs, Sugar Mommy (阿姨).  It's a very funny and entertaining music video.

Next up is the most recent release from the MC, called "Lab Rats (白老鼠)".

Let's address the elephant in the room, there are too many Sandwich Rock bands that share the same name.  For some reason, Rock and Roll bands love to name themselves after the most popular sandwiches, and that's a big problem.  

When two bands choose the same name, Google and Bing will combine their information in search results, and will attribute songs and lyrics to the wrong bands.  It's quite the condundrum.  Our mission today is to reduce the confusion and try to make sense of it all.  

The 1st thing we wanted to do was determine which sandwich names are chosen by bands the most.  After extensive research, we took our results and created a simple table of the top 10 sandwich names used by bands.  

Top 10 Sandwich Names Used By Rock Bands

11The Cheeseburgers
12Knuckle Sandwich

The 2nd thing we wanted to do was to research which bands fell into each sandwich category. We organized the bands by their sandwich names, determined what country they were from, and tried to organize their social links. 

To make it easier, we created a simple chart with examples of Sandwich Rock bands who share the same name, along with Social and Article links, so you can learn more about the bands.  (We only showed the Top 2 Bands for each Sandwich Name.)

Finally, the 3rd thing we wanted to do was pick the Top 2 Bands from each category, give a brief description of who they are, and then share one song out of those two bands.  

Our main goal was to eliminate confusion when we searched for bands with similar sandwich names in Google or Bing, and try to seperate any overlaps in the search results.  It took some work, but we feel that our goal was partially accomplished and the bands are easier to follow now.  

So, without further ado, here are Last Sandwich's favorite two bands from each sandwich category in the "Top 10 Sandwich Names" list.

When it comes to Rock and Roll, even the most mediocre music can be energized by youth, which is exactly what happened with the latest single by an Indonesian Band called Sandwich.  

The lead singer's energy is so infectious, with a voice full of passion, that it carries you through the whole song.  And after you translate and read the lyrics, that youthful idealism becomes even more powerful.  Did we mention the band is pretty good too?  

Two Wheels vs Four Wheels

The name of the song is "Empat Roda", which means "Four Wheels" in English.  As far as we can tell, he is singing to a girl who is fawning over another suitor's fancy car and expensive house, while he is just a simple boy who rides a motorbike, living an ordinary life.  

To put it in context, Indonesia has one of the highest uses of motorbikes in the world, with 112 million motorbikes on the road for a population of 273 million people, which is roughly 41% of the people on two-wheels.  

On the other hand, Indonesia has only 15.9 million cars on the road, which means only 17% of their people are on four-wheels.  Some web sites put Indonesia's car ownership even lower, well under the 8% range.  

In layman terms... car ownership in Indonesia is considered a luxury. 

And that's what makes this song so amazing!  Here is a boy who is part of the 85% on two-wheels, competing against a boy who is part of the 15% on four-wheels.  

It's the classic Indonesian, rich vs poor, four-wheels vs two-wheels, heartbreak love song!

Latest Videos

So, without further ado, here are two videos of the song "Empat Roda" by the Indonesian band called Sandwich.  Listen to both the Live Version and their Official Video.  This band has so much energy, it's infectious!

As a bonus, we've translated the lyrics to the song below.  Hopefully, the song's meaning will carry through into English.

Four Wheels Lyrics (translated by Google Translate)

You I have become one
Don't ever compare me to him
He has everything
I'm just what I am

Because I'm not he has four wheels
All I have is two
I'm simple while he is
Have a luxury car and a magnificent house

I can't give you everything
And there's nothing to be proud of
Your family your friends
I better leave you

Because I'm not he has four wheels
All I have is two
I'm simple while he is
Have a luxury car and a magnificent house

Because I'm not him
Got four wheels

Because I'm not he has four wheels
All I have is two
I'm simple while he is
Have a luxury car and a magnificent house

I'm not he has four wheels
All I have is two
I'm simple while he is
Have a luxury car and a magnificent house

I'm not him
Got four wheels


Two Bonus Songs

As an added bonus, here are two more songs by the Indonesian Band called Sandwich, a beautiful tune called "Malu" and a fast cover called "SI Dolly".

SI DOLLY (Cover) by Sandwich




sandwich band philippines 01

The World's Most Dangerous Sandwich Rock Band is back!  Known for their heavy electric bass sound, the Philippine band known as <S>andwich just released their lastest single, Negatives.   

The music video is a montage of every rock musician's gangster fantasy, complete with Smith and Wessons' and Colt 45s.  However, in the end, it's not the guns that kill, but something far less sinister.  

While we don't really know what the video's storyline is all about, we still enjoy that the Gangster Maven is also the only female member of the band.  

We won't spoil the ending, you will have to watch it for yourself.
