Most WTF Florida Music Moments of 2014

Enough with the Florida jokes, America. We get it. We come across as a little trashy on the internet.

Yeah, we give our sexual predators $3 million lottery checks and occasionally store crack pipes in our butts. And sure, we have a perpetual hankering for some home-cooked meth and Colombia's finest nose candy. But we like to think of our approach to crime as creative. And as far as the drugs, if you don't like to party, you don't have to come over.

What follows here are some of the most WTF music moments that took place in our sunny state in 2014. You might say with a shiver when reading them: "What the F, Florida?" But when we locals reminisce about our crazy times, we think, "Aw, baby. You so crazy." And then take a hearty bump and keep on dancing. Here it goes.
