Top 50 Tracks of 2010: Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks

December 21, 2010

12. Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks.mp3

Foster the People turn in the greatest summer tune of quite possibly all time (you heard me, surviving Beach Boys), chock full of kids who want to grow up to be urban cowboys and draw down on all the fancy kids with their shiny new footwear.

Nothing makes you feel more invincible than being transported back to your adolescent days of indestructible shit-talking. Never mind that being a teen also meant an endless amount of shit-taking. As soon as the tormentors backs are turned, you’ll start singing under your breath:

All the other kids with their pumped-up kicks
You better run, better run
Outrun my gun

Adopt these adorable Foster kids!

The rest of the Top 50.



  1. You have a knack for selecting songs with the element of surprise…sweeeet!

    • Yeah, it’s the sociopath hiding behind the bubbly exterior that does it for me too. It’s like finding out that a Glee cast member just got booked on an animal cruelty charge.
