I hope the world never forgets about Peter Gabriel. I guess even if it's just me and a handful of like-minded people that love this and what Peter did for music, then that's okay, but the man is amazing and deserves recognition. So funky and solid in everything he did.

This is a lot better than Rihanna's song of the same name. Fuck you Rihanna Bingo! (that's her full name BTW)

Dear Youtube: I know I am watching Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer." I know this means I enjoy pop music. And I do! Complex, rich, melodic, catchy pop music. So why show me a commercial for Nicky Minaj before, whose music is simplistic, low-quality, a-tonal, only-catchy-in-an-"all hail the hypnotoad!"-sort-of-way? Fuck you, Youtube. Genesis Channel, thank you for a classic upload!

I was 4 years old when this came out, Probably my earliest living memory is watching this video on tv and loving it. My dad was always a huge Peter Gabriel fan. Bought all his albums in highschool.
