"Please Play This Song On The Radio" as written by and Mike Burkett....
We wrote this song, it's not too short, it's not too long
It's got back up voc's in just the right places
It's got a few oohs and ahhs
It takes a little pause
Just before the second chorus
Please play this song on the radio
Almost every line is sung in time
Almost every verse ends in a rhyme
The only problem we had was writing
Enough words
But that's okay, because the chorus is
Coming up again now
Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio

Right about this time
Some shit head will be drawing a fat fucking line
Over the title on the back sleeve, what an asshole
So Mr. DJ I hope you've already made your segway
Or the FCC will take a shit right on your head
Can't play this song on the radio
Can't play this song on the radio

    General CommentI like how this song makes fun of all the emerging pop-punk bands. It is true, like how the lyrics are organized, almost identical. its also quite funny.

    General Commentit's a song about how they told this one radio station that they couldn't play bottles to the ground anymore, and then the station did anyway and nofx never played bottles to the ground live anymore because of it

    General CommentReally? I knew about NOFX getting pissed when some station played a song they weren't supposed to, but i didn't know all that. I still think it's about the identikit guitar-pop that's all over the radio.

    You wouldn't figure a band that's so proud of it's jackass image would be as smart as these guys are (c'mon, Rhyme-rim, "almost every line issungintime" -- who else would write stuff like that?)

    And i know i'm being kinda anal retentive, but it's 'segue', not segway. feel free to correct my spelling all you want.

    General CommentI don’t really like NOFX. But this song is uber-amazing. =) I like how it says that every song on the radio is pretty much the same. Which is true. Not listening to the radio for about two months, I listened it to the other day, and I heard the same songs…just different people. -_-. I also like the whole anti-FCC theme.
