The new way to sound modern? Go retro!
(AKA: Timbaland has SIDS.)

New discovery raises question, "What will become of the grand tradition of popular music causing parents to cry out in pain, What is that noise? That's not music!"

Schlock dance record producer, "Timbaland," responsible the backing tracks on hits by Nelly Furtado, and rapper 50 Cent (pronounced fiddy cen), has been positively identified as a Commodore 64 user ripoff artist. Loops stolen directly from C64 sound demos and the 1988 game "The Last Ninja 2" were layered with stock dance beats to create a hot modern dance sound. The millennial generation dances unknowingly to the retro sounds their parents first computer.

"Timbaland basically just phones it in," probably said some Norwegian guy.

None of this is in English, but you get the idea.
