"Atari Teenage Riot" as written by and Alec Empire Alexander Wilke....
Go!
Are you ready?
1 2 3 4
After west German takeover Berlin youth were just getting used to
Their new found freedoms:
House, drugs, squats denied despite food and money shortages
Since perestroika planet Soviet Union has changed,
There's a new world in which young people can work together
Come on - let's work together
The most famous suckers are Elvis Presley, James Dean
And the most photographed universally known of them all:
Marilyn Monroe
But the times are changing, and you'll see that the
Last chance will be an
Atari teenage riot

Atari teenage riot
What did you say? what did you say? what did you say?
Atari teenage riot!

There won't be any experts there to say
You should do this
You should do that
I don't care what anyone does to our records
I just don't want to be looking at it
I don't want to punish people, I want to punish myself
As much as well with the music I think that's part of the reason
But anyway, the last chance will be an Atari Teenage Riot

Atari teenage riot
What did you say? what did you say? what did you say?
Atari teenage riot!

Power for those who can fuck it
Freedom for those who can find it
Sex for those who can buy it
Television today never lies

What did you say?
Atari teenage riot!

    General CommentThey played with Rage Against the Machine a couple years ago, and a little known triva fact is that Rage liked Alec Empire(head of ATR) so much that they named their cd Evil Empire off of him. Yes, it also has to do with Rages political ideas, but at the same time refers to Alec being Evil. Learn something new every day.

    General CommentRE Rage Rumor: The album's title is taken from the phrase evil empire, which was used by former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and many Western conservatives in describing the former Soviet Union.
