"The Vans Song" as written by and Daniel Jay Lukacinsky....
Well, you're just like a club fag wearing Doc Martens
Get a pair of chukas or some checkerboard slip-ons
Worship Jeff Spicoli not Chris Cornell
Get a pair of Vans or God will send you to Hell
To Hell¡­
You think Doc Martens are the coolest invention Listen | Buy

Since someone sliced a loaf of bread in someone else's kitchen
The plain truth is that you just plain suck
So why should I tell you not to waste a hundred bucks
Vans in my head
Vans on my feet
My sole is on the ground when I'm walking down the street 2, 3, 4
Don't wear no Doc Martens
Can't wear no Birkenstocks
Just a crummy old pair of chuka boots and a smelly old pair of socks¡­
If you want to wear them you don't have to ride a skateboard
You can even wear them with a pair of old cords
Someone'll probably tell you that they're not in trend
Just tell them that's the reason why you don't have any friends
No friends¡­
I don't want to hear about alternative footwear
And I don't want to hear about your new hair-do
I don't give a shit about you stupid motherfuckers
'Cause I just want to get a pair of olive green chukas!
Vans in my head
Vans on my feet
My sole is on the ground when I'm walking down the street 2, 3, 4
Don't wear no Doc Martens
Can't wear no Birkenstocks
Just a crummy old pair of chuka boots and a smelly old pair of socks¡­
Vans in my head
Vans on my feet
My sole is on the ground when I'm walking down the street 2, 3, 4
Don't wear no Doc Martens
Can't wear no Birkenstocks
Just a crummy old pair of chuka boots and a smelly old pair of socks¡­

    My OpinionSigh. I love Suicide Machines, and I love this song... but the lyrics irritate me. I hate a poser as much as anyone, but don't choose to wear shoes or NOT to wear shoes based on some pretentious, douchebag song like this. I like Docs, and I like Vans. I'll wear whatever the fuck shoes I want and if SM want to look down on me for it... well, "I don't give a shit about you stupid motherfuckers".

    General CommentI've observed from listening to music all my life and searching this site for a little that it seems that everyone who likes punk goes to some pop-fuck artist's page to bitch about commercialism. Which makes it fun and interesting to see Suicide Machines make a song thats basically an infomercial for shoes. By the way, Vans are good shoes, but i have not been able to find a pair in about 5 years. every store that sells them never has my size. thats why im happy Nike mass-produces Airwalk.
