Why Are We Doing an "Ask a Stupid Question Day" Video Roundup?

It's okay! You can ask! Because today is "Ask a Stupid Question Day." The day was established in the '80s by a group of teachers who noticed that students were hesitant to raise their hands in class to ask questions, that really, may or may not be stupid. But, annually on September 28th, kids can abandon that fear of social ridicule! KEXP would like to extend this courtesy beyond the classroom and into this Video Roundup, because many of our favorite songs are in the form of a query. And that's okay. Don't be afraid to ask questions, people.

(Yes, you can.)

(At least they provide their own answer.)

(Someone took the time to list reasons why not.)

This is actually a good question.
