Will Apple’s Bash finally bring the jams?

Every year since 2000, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference has concluded with a huge concert called The Bash. This party brings the white and nerdy devs to the yard with bands like Barenaked Ladies (2008), Cake (2009) and OK Go (2010).

We’d like to see Apple switch things up this year. With the recent Beats Music deal still echoing down the halls of Cupertino, it’d sure be nice to see a group up on the Apple stage with a bit more street cred than, say, The Rippingtons (2001).

That’s why, when pressed to pick a musical act for this year’s WWDC end-of-event party, we would choose N.W.A. to shake things up and add a little urban style to the proceedings. Heck, they can even parody all of Straight Outta Compton with Apple-ized, family-friendly lyrics. “Fuck tha Police” becomes “Help tha Police,” an ode to Find My Phone. Bonus points for hologram Eazy-E.
