Do you really believe that!? Does the material being performed ever come into the equation?

There is an element of Torah im Derech Eretz that RSRH would agree too.

Sure. But this song is totally OK. my source: Maccabeats sing it.

Its association with a show that is frequently trashy. Not kind of trashy, straight up trailer or euro trashy.
I'll tell you one thing, Jewish Bayshanut is in the trash too. I'm not sure it ever existed.

How can you call him a frummie?? He's wearing a kippah seruga and jeans! It's a chilul Hashem to appear in public like that. As if that's an acceptable way for a Jew to dress!

  • Torah im Derech Eretz as RSRH posited never entailed embracing secular values for their own end.
  • I'm not sure how this is even remotely applicable to that ideal anyway.

Yes I'm sure the Maccabeats are the arbiters of all that is holy within the secular world.

Well they are from YU and as well know YU's purpose in life these days is to mimic the goyim.

Totally inappropriate as he obviously can not see this and/or defend himself. Since when is LH ok just because the person is not going to see it?

I disagree. He is free to see it and respond. And I think you are inappropriately making an issue out of it.
