In case the fact that my dad turns up the radio every time Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" comes on isn't enough evidence to prove that the song has worn out its welcome, I present to you exhibits B and C. The former is Postmodern Jukebox's ye olde time cover of "Thrift Shop" that feels like it comes with a jug of bootleg moonshine. The latter is an electronic dance song from Bart & Baker that samples that old timey version of the song.

A 2012 song about buying second-hand clothes from the 1970s was transformed into a prohibition era hit that was turned into a 21st century house beat. Macklemore's debut hit is officially eating itself.
