I'm Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend Punctuation

My friend Ben recently forwarded me a promotional e-mail from Boston's alternative radio station that contains an apostrophe catastrophe, confusing you're with your. WFNX refers to a song by the Black Kids as "I'm Not Going to Teach You're Boyfriend How to Dance." Horrendous! Here's the proof:

Ben says he investigated and found out that the band uses proper punctuation in the song title; the mistake was on WFNX's end. If you look closely, you'll also see that WFNX wrote 80's instead of '80s. Good thing I'm going through a cheesy pop phase at the moment and haven't listened to much FNX recently. My musical taste is damaged, damaged, damaged. God, that song is so terrible.
