The Vapors were hammered by critics after the release of Magnets, mainly because of the dark themes that pervaded the record. This song, which has the same title as the album, references the Kennedy assassination, and is probably one of the tunes that drew so many critics' ire. That said, it's a great song (and it is nowhere near as dark as our final number later this morning).
