"Bad Weekend" as written by and Chris Ward Ian Wilson....
Haven't read the NME in so long, don't know what genre we belong [Repeat: x2]
Popular culture, no longer applies to me [Repeat: x4]

It's tough at the top, the fashionista, text in topshop, text in topshop
Sometimes it's hard to stop, when your heart is set on top of the pops, top of the pops

Haven't read the NME in so long, don't know what genre we belong [Repeat: x2]
Popular culture, no longer applies to me [Repeat: x4]

It's tough at the top, the fashionista, text in topshop, text in topshop
Sometimes it's hard to stop, when your heart is set on top of the pops, top of the pops
I've saved up so much money to spend, all I can afford is a bad weekend

And there's no reason for staying in, there's nothing on the television
Popular culture, no longer applies to me [Repeat: x4]

    General Comment'Best Live Adlib ever, after kicking over a mic stand: "Spacial Awareness no longer applies to me" '

    Hahah thats great.

    And great lyrics to this song. Criticisms of the 'indie scene' can get pretty tiresome, but this is done with enough wit to make it enjoyable.

    General CommentI love this song! It's probably my favourite off the new album.

    "Can't stand pop music nowadays
    It's not loud enough
    Everybody can sing "

    :) I love Eddie Argos' vocals so much, they're so rubbish.

    General CommentSuch a good song, I love the gutar licks. Obviously as far as meanings go, it's just about being fed up with the endless categorization and discussion about genres, and I love it.

    General Commentawesome.... i think its about his intense dislike of the current 'indie scene' and how everyone in it thinks they're so cool and 'alternative' when the music they make and listen to is fundamentally formulaic pop.
    art brut dont conform to any particular genre and i find it ironic when all the 'indie kids' say how much they love this band, when this song is basically saying 'fuck you all, you little posing wannabees'

    i know, i should let them get on with it, but they're killing truely alternative music

    General CommentI saw them live with Maximo Park, and he just started chanting, "ART, BRUT! TOP OF THE POPS!" and then it became "MAXIMO, PARK, WERE ON TOP OF THE POPS!" I love Eddie Argos. So much.
