    General CommentIt's not about society. It's a personal song about how he and his friends did stupid shit when they were kids. They called it "getting dangerous." Here's a link to a very interesting explanation by one of Rivers' childhood friends:

    Expands on much of the lyrics of the song, especially the line:
    "Throw the keys and the wheel locked up
    I almost killed every one us"

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song are really hilarious. Great song, but I wished Rivers sang the chorus as well. No offense, Brian.

    General CommentTotally relate to this song. Grew up in a small town and i did everything he talks about (except for the corpse thing and hockey, no frozen ponds in az). I personally love the new cd, and realize that there are thousands of bands that have a hit and try to carbon copy it cd after cd. Props to Weezer for making new music, keep it up!

    General CommentMaybe it's about how society is so different today than in his time. Everything is child-proofed and stuff. People are played into fear too easily and they just need to relax.

    Song MeaningI grew up in a small town and these lyrics hit close to home reminding me of the stupid things I did when I was growing up. I like the following lyrics about how there must have been a guardian angel watching over us because we should have died a long time ago. I’ve been there driving on country roads and almost killing all of us locking up the breaks going almost 100 mph on icy roads when someone turns in front of you off a side road ahead. We went around them going about 60 mph on the shoulder after my friends yelled from the back seat to go around go around them. If we didn’t we would have crashed right into the back of them. It was a very scary situation which I will never forget. Then I like how he brings up what will we say to our kids when they want to play with ninja swords. It really puts things in perspective. How can you absolutely say NO when you did all the same stupid shit when you were a kid? I will say NO but I just hope my child follows my wife’s steps and not my stupid teenage actions.
