Gorillaz – Fire Coming Out Of A Monkey's Head Lyrics 9 years ago
I think what the story is trying to show is how the average Americans (and I only say American because of the little town USA line, it can also hold true for most of the world) just goes about there lives thinking everything is ok, but they don't realize that very bad things are happening in the world. The Strangefolk, I believe, are the powerful minortity (government officials, corporations) that aim to become richer and more powerful at the expense of the rest of us. As Happyfolk, we don't always see what the elite are doing, but eventually things will blow up, either environmentally or through a revolution, and its going to destroy us all.

And by the way, Dennis Hopper was perfect for this song.

Dropkick Murphys – Tessie Lyrics 9 years ago

The Clash – White Riot Lyrics 11 years ago

Something Corporate – Konstantine Lyrics 12 years ago
If I can quote Bad Religion's Brian Baker. "Something Corporate is one of the worst bands I've ever seen in my life. " If these guys would just stop crying they might be able to put together a song that actually means something. And in my humble opinion, if you want an emotional song on the same topic check out "Black" by Pearl Jam.

Lars Frederiksen And The Bastards – Skunx Lyrics 12 years ago
Pretty obvious what this song is about. Lars is singing about his experiences being in Skunx.

Bad Religion – Bad Religion Lyrics 12 years ago
A belief is not a religion. A religion is an organizes communal society based upon a system of beliefs (that's not out of a dictionary, it's straight from my head). A belief is simply a belief, for example, a person could believe in god but not be religious.

Mindless Self Indulgence – I Hate Jimmy Page Lyrics 12 years ago

Leftover Crack – Atheist Anthem Lyrics 12 years ago
First off I'm not religious, but people who don't believe in god don't have any evidence either, so basically this is an argument that no one can win. That is all I was trying to say.

Linkin Park – My December Lyrics 12 years ago
I agree with spliph, you guys have no idea what sell out means. Selling out is when you compromise yourself and go against your beliefs in order to make money. LP has yet to do that.

Ben Harper – Burn One Down Lyrics 12 years ago
What's great about music is it can mean anything to anyone. It doesn't matter what Ben Harper had in mind when he was writing it. If it's about drugs, fine if not who cares? Music is abut personal interpretation, it's what it means to you that matters.

The Clash – Lost in the Supermarket Lyrics 12 years ago
It's a metaphor for suburban life. He's saying that growing up in the suburbs can lead to a kind of identity crisis because basically when you live there you have no identity(according to him, that is). So it is kind of depressing.
