We're the band with our own label
That's money under the table
That's answering to no one
Still bands just love to hate us
Talking shit behind us
But smiling to our face

That's okay
It's not that they don't like us
They're just a little jealous
'Cause we're having more fun
(the band that wouldn't die)
We're the self-crowned kings of candor
Sultans of slander
Bastions of D.I.Y.

Which means we make more money
We've got better prescriptions
We own most of our own music
No one's got their hands in our pockets
We don't have management
We get to play loaded
And only 3 months a year
Some years we just take off
Vacations are a write off
And so is going out
(Fuck us)
I suppose that's how we'll go out
Played out and way after our time

    General Commentthis song is aimed at bands such as propagandhi who diss nofx and claim them to be capitalists and the like. see their lyrics to "rock for a sustainable capitalism"

    "Still bands just love to hate us
    Talking shit behind us
    But smiling to our face"

    General CommentCould anyone please post the lyrics to the hidden track?
    I figured out some (or all?) of them are demos for the monthly 7"es, but I don't know their names except for "There's No Fun In Fundamentalism"
