"60 Revolutions" as written by Eliot Ferguson, Eugene Hutz, Oren Kaplan, Yuri Lemeshev, Sergey Ryabstev and Rea Mochiach....
60 revolutions per minute
This is my regular speed
So how do you want me to live with it?
How do you want me to live with it?
Without ringing all alarms!
Without overthrowing czars!
Without emptying the bars!
Without screwing with your charts!

60 revelations per minute
This is my regular need
So how do you want me to live with it?
How do you want me to live with it?
Without ringing all alarms!

I'm gathering new generation
That's going to stand up to it
To this karaoke dictatorship
Where posers and models with guitars
Boogie to the shit for beats
I make a better rock revolution
Alone with my dick!

60 por minuto es mi reputacion
Y no te estoy hablando de revolucion
Hace mucho teimpo q ya no te decian
Basta de injusticia, muerte y policia

Digas lo que digas ya esta todo arregiado
Hagas lo que hagas te mandan deportado
El que tiene impone y sobre la ley dispone
Mientras que el pobre es pobre
Muere de hambre y otro se la come

    General CommentThis song I feel is about a disgust of popular culture.

    General CommentI agree. Clearly a dislike in this song for pop music and all the image conscious people in the music scene.

    Lines like "karaoke dictatorship" & "posers and models with guitars" shows the contempt for the kind of thing that is now "cool" in music.

    A few lines are wrong aswell. The second verse "this is my regular need" and a big chunk about "chocolat" is missing.

    Favourite song off Gypsy Punks.

    General Comment"i make a better rock revolution alone with my dick" lol i love that line, hutz is amazing..and yeah, i think it's about the talentless bands or front people of bands that get full credit for basically lip syncing & not even being able to play guitar or keep a beat

    General CommentYeah, Eugene's never been especially reluctant to express his thoughts on this subject. ;) These guys are the anti-thesis to the corporate-sponsored, canned mus-ak that's all over the place these days. I think they wrote this song just in case anyone missed this tiny, little detail.

    General CommentClearly the song is about the globalization of empty calorie pop music, but what I'm curious about is why 60 rpm? It's obviously not a record player speed.

    General CommentObviously a general distaste towards music, with revolutionary politics mixed in - the 60 Revolutions refers, I believe, to the fact that the heart beats at 60 Beats Per Minute. Meaning that they make their music from the heart.

    General CommentI'd rather say it's because there are 60 seconds in a minute, so that gives us a new revolution in every second of every minute - quite a lot, huh? But Gogol Bordello can surely do that
