WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - The Junkies revived everyone’s favorite music-inspired segment Tuesday morning with a “Hit or Hurting” that featured a collaboration of two current artists who come from opposite sides of the tracks, you might say.

“This is a new song that has LL Cool J with Brad Paisley,” Valdez introduced the popular segment on 106.7 The Fan, Tuesday morning.

“And it’s not a goof?” EB asked.

The latest effort by record producers to cross-pollinate their musical acts and achieve that next crossover smash, pairs country music star Brad Paisley with hip-hop icon LL Cool J.

In concept, the song sounds … actually it doesn’t sound very good in concept.

But at least once you hear it … well, it doesn’t really deliver either.

The end result is a preachy, far-fetched attempt to deliver an out-of-date message about white and black people living in harmony. Maybe the news hasn’t hit the south yet, but the U.S. has a black president.

Everyone’s been harmonizing fairly well for some time now.

Anyways, here’s a snippet from the song:

“It’s not a goof song,” Lurch admitted. “It’s trying to send a message but it just doesn’t work.”

“The general consensus according to people on Twitter and all the articles is that it’s just an awful song,” JP explained. “They don’t have a problem with the content. They don’t have a problem with the thought of them collaborating. They just think the song sucks.”

What do you think? Did the Junks miss the call on this one?
