According to Murphy’s Law, everything that can go wrong sooner or later will. While the jury’s still out on whether that rule holds true, one can point to plenty of evidence in its favor. On a new single, YC the Cynic lives up to his name, offering an abridged history of human f**k-ups from Adam & Eve all the way to our contemporary despoiling of the environment in pursuit of fossil fuels.
