"Fast Cars" as written by Howard Devoto, Steve Diggle, Pete Shelley....
They're nice and precise, each one begins and ends
They may win you admirers, but they'll never earn you friends
Fast cars, fast cars
Fast cars, I hate fast cars

They're so depressing going 'round and 'round
Ooh, they make me dizzy, oh fast cars they run me down
Fast cars, fast cars,
Fast cars, I hate fast cars

Sooner or later, you're gonna listen to Ralph Nader
I don't wanna cause a fuss, but fast cars are so dangerous
Fast cars, fast cars
Fast cars, I hate fast cars, fast cars
Fat cars, fast cars
I hate fast cars

    General Commentin the 60's, Ralph Nader was an activist concerned with safety standards and such in the auto industry. he wrote a book called Unsafe At Any Speed (perhaps the inspiration for the punk compilation of the same name).

    General CommentIn the 1970s and 1980s Ralph Nader was a key leader in the anti-nuclear power movement. I have no idea what this song means.

    Song Comparison"Packed like lemmings into shiny metal boxes,
    Contestants in a suicidal race."

    Cars are just so funny.
