"Art Crisis" as written by and Bob Mould....
Overhearing conversations turn into dust
Critically acclaimed and publicly defamed
There's nothing I can say about it
Much less I could do about it
Who cares anyway?
Who cares anyway?
There's nothing I can do about it
Screw it, I don't care about it
Nothing I can say about it
Hey, it's OK now
Monkeys made of brass fly out of your ass
Self-destructive fool fell into the pool
So content with treading water
If it doesn't get much hotter
Tired of every day's morality plays
There's nothing I can do about it
Screw it, I don't care about it
Nothing I can say about it
Hey, it's OK now
I'm so tired of trying to explain
I'm so bored I hardly stand the strain
Everything you hate
Is everything that you created
Rollercoaster pharmacy of ups and downs
Endless ride upon your merry-go-round
Stupid is as stupid says
Now it all goes to your head
Inspirations fade
The failing grade

    My InterpretationMaybe this song refers to the times when Bob was "outed" by a gay activist group and the crisis he had obviously after that. Just my interpretation, but sentences like this one might suggest so:

    "Overhearing conversations turn into dust / Critically acclaimed and publicly defamed / There's nothing I can say about it / Much less I could do about it / Who cares anyway?"
