I know some of the comments to this will be, "Shut up. You are only 27," but with my ten year high school reunion just a year away, the sudden uptick in gray hair (all 5 of them), and the realization that my hairline is starting to resemble a V, a boy has the right to whine for a bit.

Since my fellow late twenty-something friend sent me this video yesterday, the song will not leave my head. A Yahoo!'s SketchY Parody of Fun.'s oh so addictive "We Are Young," "We're Not Young," tells the story of some thirty-somethings and the woe that is adulthood. I'll have to say, it has killed the joy I found in the original.

I recently worked the Fun. show at the 9:30 Club and it was my second time seeing them. Did I look ridiculous rocking out to this song assuming they were talking about me? Maybe the fact that Glee covered the song should have told me something.

Either way, my joy has been killed and the lyrics forever perverted in my mind.

If you haven't seen the original, watch it first. Catch them both after the jump.

Feel free to comfort me in the comments.
