Brand Atlanta Backlash

The backlash against Dallas Austin’s “The ATL” is in full-swing. Check out this press release that we received over at My ‘Lanta:


Suburban Atlanta Anthem To Premiere at UGA Halftime
ìOTPî written and produced by country legend Abilene San Antonio

LAWRENCEVILLE – November 10, 2005 – With more than 90,000 fans watching, Grammy-award winner and Lawrenceville resident Abilene San Antonio will debut his suburban Atlanta anthem ìOTPî during the halftime celebration of this Saturdayís UGA-Auburn game in Athens. ìOTPî is Mr. San Antonioís response to the Dallas Austin-penned ìThe ATL,î a song that many in the suburbs feel emphasizes urban culture to the exclusion of hard-working, decent, God-fearing, white suburbanites.

ìIf you ask me, rapís just crap without the C,î explained San Antonio. ìWhen Dallas Austin made ëThe ATLí into one of them rap songs, he was pretty much telliní folks like me that we ainít no longer welcome in Atlanta no more. Itís too bad, cause my wife was wantiní to check out that Ikea place.î

San Antonioís previous hits include ìTrucks, Guns and More Guns,î ìThatís Our Oil Under Their Sand,î and the Grammy award-winning ìGod Didnít Make No Adam And Steve

    Woo hoo! Now I’ll have 2 songs to hate.
    I still think that “GA on my mind” is just fine.

    Unbelievable caterwauling vocals. If I wanted to hear someone puke the words “drop to your knees” for twenty minutes (the song was recorded by a man in the throes of 0rgasm and/or repentance?)…well…I just don’t want to hear someone do that…EVER AGAIN.

    P.S. Wasn’t the old slogan “The City Too Busy To Hate?” enough of a distress signal to send the outside world? Clearly in THE ATL, we got problems.

    P.S.S. Don’t blame me, I’m a transplanted Yankee just bewildered as the dickens at almost everything that goes on in the ATL. This place passes as civilized society? Hard to believe. I’ve lived all over the country and have never seen a city so self-deluding and incompetent and clueless in my life.
