Yeah there was some dark humor on "Smash"

in songs like "Come Out & Play", "Self Esteem" and "Bad Habit" but "Pretty Fly" and "Get A Job" are self-conscious, misguided attempts at straight up comedy music which fail completely, both in the musical and lyrical departments. Not only were the lyrics painfully unfunny, they pushed to group into dance pop and, in the case of "Get A Job", some sort of latin pop influence I guess? At any rate, these were clearly genres that the band had no business dabbling in.
