But will it blend?
Yes, if you have an industrial blender, or it will explode.
The two artists have many songs that end in either way :)

Okay, what's up with US domestic blenders?

One factor may be that they have a maximum of about 1.8 kW (2.5 hp)
available from the power outlet, and most seem to be designed for about
half of that. In the UK you can get about 3.8 kW (5.1 hp) out of a
standard power outlet, and in much of continental Europe you can get
about 3.0 kW (4.0 hp). I know that people from the UK often complain
about how "slow" some US appliances (like electric coffee/tea pots) are.
