Tech 9, Soundgarden, and My Retirment Fund

I have a rule in my classes. If someone's phone rings during class, I dance until the ringer is shut off. I try to make the dance as terrible as possible (not hard)...and I try to shake my ass rhythmically to the sound of the most-likey-hip-hop tune.

This happened in class the other day....and I thought to make the dance even funnier...I would try tap dancing to the rap/hip hop song blasting from my student's phone. As he rushed to turn it off...I asked

Me: Who was that?

B: Tech 9.

Me: Tech 9? I must be getting old...I've never heard of him. Where's he from?

B: Kansas City

Me: So he likes ribs, steaks, and gangster rap?

B: Something like that. So what kind of music do you like Professor Manasse?

Me: Oh...well...

B: Do you like soft rock?

Me: No...

B: I bet you like soft rock...like Soundgarden.

Me: Soundgarden is now considered soft rock? I thought that was alternative/grunge. Elton John is soft rock.

B: Oh.

Me: But I like Elton John, too.

Trying to dance as terrible as possible doesn't really count if it comes naturally... I'll give you props for the the tap dancing attempt, though.

Didn't think of them as a musical group and having visited that page - I still don't...

Thought a TEC 9 was a gun... and apparently according to the urban dictionary:
Intratec TEC-9 9mm semi-automatic pistol. Pre-ban version could accomodate a 50 round magazine and had a threaded barrel to accept a silencer or barrel extention. It could be easily modified with "hellfire" rapid fire triggers, or full automatic mode.

Elton John - You probably play 'Let it Ride' in the casino :-)

To the Dark Lord
I know I will be dead long before you read this
but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret.
I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can.
I face death in the hope that when you meet your match
you will be mortal once more.
