Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.

Amy Winehouse's father-in-law calls on fans to stop buying Winehouse's records to pressure the couple to quit drugs.

So you get famous by singing a song called "Rehab" in which the main chorus is "They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no..." only to have people suggest boycotting your records until you quit drugs? Oh, the life of a rock star. Anyway, as an alternative to supporting Amy's drug habits I suggest instead checking out The Detroit Cobras. Here's what LA Weekly has to say about them:
"No offense to Amy Winehouse, but it was the Cobras‚ Rachel Nagy who first reinvented the 60s soul-pop diva as a boozy, punk-informed, smart-mouthed chanteuse in the late 90s." Falling James LA Weekly
So enjoy all the fun and soul of Winehouse without the guilt. Here's a couple of MP3s for you to check out:

  1. Not going to rehab after writing a song about not going to rehab is not ironic. Knowing that she should but making the decision not to go to rehab is just keeping it real, son.

  2. But she did go to rehab.
