I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'm begging you to beg me
And I want you now

Yeah I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'm begging you to beg me
I'd love you to love me
Buy a brand new shirt
Put on brand new shoes
I'd do anything if you say
That you love me.

Didn't I
Didn't I
Didn't I see you cryin'?
Didn't I
Didn't I
Didn't I see you cryin'?
Sittin' all alone I know you felt like dyin'.
Didn't I
Didn't I
Didn't I see you cryin'?

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'm begging you to beg me
I'd love you to love me
Buy a brand new shirt
I'll put on brand new shoes
I would do anything if you'd say that you love me

Didn't I
Didn't I
Didn't I see you cryin'?.
Didn't I
Didn't I
Didn't I see you cryin'?
Sittin' all alone I know you felt like dyin'.
Didn't I
Didn't I
Didn't I see you cryin'?
(Oh yeah) And I want you NOW

Meghan...
She don't eat...bacon
She'd never kill a sweet innocent little piggy to get bacon
She's one of them vegans
She's a sweet loving, sweet talking, loveable vegan...and that's alright

    General CommentHahah. I love this song. It's like, the anti-lovesong, making fun of overly sappy, heartfelt, vomit-inducing love ballads.

    And the ending with all the band members shouting "fuck" is great. Every song ever should end like that.

    And "punk" has had so many definitions over the years, it's damn near impossible to assign it one universal meaning. The Clash was the definitive political punk band, whereas the Sex Pistols embodied the true "hey fuck you" punk attitude, and Crass was the true DIY "fight the system, stick it to the man" punk. Even the Ramones made an important contribution - their easy 3-chord songs set a precedent for simple songwriting, allowing punk to be more accessible to teens, who, admittedly, are usually not very musically proficient yet. And let's face it: without teens, punk would have died a long time ago.

    Which of these elements truly embodies the spirit of punkrawk? That's purely opinion. Personally, I think if you remove the influence of any of these bands, you'd get an incomplete picture of what punk is, and what it has come to be.

    ...what HAS it come to be, you ask?

    Fuck if I know, man.

    ...Luckily, there are bands like Propagandhi around to keep the true spirit of punk alive. Even if bands like NFG, who sing about fucking GIRL problems, and NOFX, who just spout on and on about Bush (we get it, he's a bad president) may get all the fame and glory, there will always be bands like Propagandhi around to remind people what punk truly is. Or at least... what it once was.

    General Commentsex pistols true punk masters? that is a sick joke mate. the pistols were a fucking fashion-punk boyband who cared fuck all about actually doing something to further society. buy London Calling by The Clash and educate yourself to the true meaning of "being punk".

    with regards to nofx, i can no longer listen to any of their song written after they made the transition to the political process. they have sold out to the system and are a tool of the democrat party. "hijack it" my ass.
