"Mc5" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
No - You don't get it
No - You don't want it
No - You don't get it - No

No - You don't get it
No - You don't want it
No - You don't get it - No

She don't like the way she smiles
He don't like the way she smiles

Son of a bitch
I know the itch
It's like they don't get it - No
Try to get rid of it
but you won't
You can't get - won't get it - No

She don't like the way she smiles (don't want you / don't need you)
He don't like the way she smiles (can't have you/ I want)

No - You don't get it
You'll never get it
No - You don't get it
I want to see through you - Now!

No - You don't get it
You'll never get it
No - You don't get it
I want to see through you

No - You don't get it
No - You don't want it
No - You don't get it - No
Try to get rid of it
but you won't
You can't - won't - get it - No

She don't like the way she smiles
He don't like the way she smiles

No - You don't get it

She don't like the way she smiles
She don't like the way she smiles

No - You don't get it
You'll never get it
No - You don't get it
I want to see through you

No - You don't get it
You'll never get it
No - You don't get it
I want to see through you

    General CommentThis is indeed a tribute to the Motor City 5 , one of Scotts big influences and indeed one of Rocks n Rolls big influences though they are largely overlooked by mainstream media. The MC5 wanted to be/were revolutioinaries and were likely ahead of their time and that is what I think it's about.

    General CommentAt the end after the weird bass "solo" you can hear some laughter and someone yell "I broke a string!"

    General Commentthis doesn't sound like STP. it sounds kinda nu-metalish or poppy.

    General CommentI love this song so much, it's one of the best on No. 4. I know it's about the band MC5 but what the hell does it mean?? Apparently they don't like the way she smiles.
