I thought you were the one when I heard Holidays in the Sun come
from your bedroom but my mind started to stray when I saw Youth of Today
mixed with your singles what's with this underdog
and this GNR EP? I don't think Hanoi rocks
and i don't want your Paul Stanley next to my Subhumans gatefold
I'm not trying to be a jerk but I don't think this record mergers gonna work

but when I saw Christ on Parade, and This is Boston, Not LA
I knew you were the one
I knew you were for me when i saw the first Vandals EP
I found SNFU and cool I owned that record too
seems we both had Social Unrest and sung "she's a pervert nurse"
we both had the first pressing of How Could Hell be Any Worse?

so now we got two Earth ADs and we got two Killing Jokes
we got two Adolescents two Peni's and two The Crews
we got two Someone Got Their Head Kicked Ins
we got two Declines, two Damaged
and two Jealous Agains, I knew you were the one

when i saw Machine Gun Etiquette
I knew you were the one when I saw the Peace War comp
we got two Articles of Faith, 31 minutes of Group Sex
we got a couple of Avengers, and a pair of Out of Steps
we got 2 What We Do is Secret, we got 2 TSOLs
we got 2 Freedom of Choices we got two 3 Hits From
Hells

I knew you were the one

    on the surface the song is about mike meeting someone to merge his record collection with and being unsure until he finds some of the greatest HC punk albums ever recorded.

    deeper down i think this is more mikes way of proving to the ppl who think hes not a true punk that he does have a HC punk background, and just because NOFX doesn't play HC, doesn't mean he isn't.

    but hey i'm probably reading waaay to much into it, i decided to write that list as the song revealed some awesome albums i didn't already own, such as This Is Boston Not L.A., i still can't find a copy of Someone Got Their Head Kicked In tho :(

    General CommentOkay so in the song, this guy finds this girl that likes a band that he also likes.. But when he looks though her CD collection, he see's a lot of bands he hates.. But he ends up finding some CDs that he really really really likes.. The rest of the song is about them getting together and putting their CD collections together.. And now they have two copies of each CD..

    General CommentWho ever said it was a girl, maybe just a close friend?

    General CommentI doubt he is refering to his friend as "the one"
    Great sond. All the referances to old punk albums make this song really amusing

    General CommentObviously a song about a relationship decided by music collections. Been there.

    I can get most of the refferences, but the ones i missed were "Someone Got Their Head Kicked Ins" , "What we do is secret" and "she's a pervert nurse". Any help? Sorry if this makes me sound ignorant.

    General Commentwell, what we do is secret is an album by the germs, but as far as the other ones, i'm not too sure if they are albums or not. i think they are, though. hope that answers your question!
