i believe that alternative is dead
i used to be a grunge rocker man
corporate greed has choked the scene
making it all dumb and trendy
well i believe that alternative is dead
and it ain't coming back

it ain't what it used to be
all these dumb kids crowding all around me
junior highers
grabbing the flyers
going to the shows i wanna see

well i believe that we'll learn from what happened before
so all the bands we see now won't end up in a tower records store
old man's a-prowlin'
lookin' for a brand new baby face
to fill eddie vedder's job
so i believe that job's not for me
go pick on someone else

it ain't what it used to be
all these dumb kids crowding all around me
junior highers
grabbing the flyers
going to the shows i wanna see
yeah
yeah oh
whoa oh oh oh oh
whoa oh oh ohhhhh
