"Astro Zombies" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
Oh, all I want to know
All I want

With just a touch of my burning hand
I send my astro zombies to rape the land
Prime directive, exterminate
The whole human race

And your face drops in a pile of flesh
And then your heart, heart pounds
Till it pumps in death
Prime directive, exterminate
Whatever stands left

All I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

And all I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

Oh, all I want to know
All I want

With just a touch of my burning hand
I'm gonna live my life to to destroy your world
Prime directive, exterminate
The whole fuckin' race

Then your face drops in a pile of flesh
And then your heart, heart pounds
And it pumps in death
Prime directive, exterminate
The whole fuckin' place well

All I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

And all I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

Oh, all I want to know
All I want to know
All I want to know
All I want oh
Go

    General CommentPLEASE please dont even try and say MCR is punk..hey have nothing to do with anything that is real punk. punk is not music punk is not spiking your hair punk is not shopping at hot topic and feeding into the corporations that run this whole country. punk is a lifestyle and is a mindset. punk is THINKING FOR YOURSELF! you dont like something then DO SOMETHING. if you dont like the way our government is DO SOMETHING. punk is all about being active and being yourself. people shop at hot topic so you can be different when you are acting and looking like millions of other 13 year old kids and just becoming another clone for the corporations to make money off of. ENTER MTV sorry but MCR and the whole MTV movement can fuck off! again just another way to make money. MCR has nothing to do with the punk movement and are in no way related. i suggest listening or reading the lyrics to the dead kennedys songs, chickenshit conformists and MTV get off the air..those sum up my ideas. its bands like MCR that are slowly killing punk and turning it into a mindless fad. "PUNKS NOT DEAD IT JUST DESERVES TO DIE!" now all i am saying is these bands like MCR and Fob have taken what the punk movement was really about. punk is not about being wierd or different or nobody at school understands me or my boyfriend broke up with me PUNK is about doing something. punks need to stop listening to this MTV shit and get up and support local bands and change the world. punk has changed my view on alot of things its made me realize instead of just sitting around i can do something and be myself and fight for what i believe in...also fuck george bush...anyway this is a long rant you can stop reading at any time BUT for all you MCR fans i am not telling you to stop listening to them or whatever all i am saying is dont call yourself a punk if you listen to them because they have nothin to do with punk! and remember as DOA once said "Talk-Action=Zero"

    oh and the song...i like it. its my favorite misfits song...not a big misfits fan though.

    General CommentALL THE GUYS WHO WERE ARGUING ABOUT ALL OF THAT SHIT ARE ASSHOLES. LIVE YOUR FUCKING LIFES. SHOW A LITTLE TOLERANCE. HOW CAN'T JUST FUCKING ASK FOR TOLERANCE IF YOU DON'T FUCKING GIVE IT?.
    It's about the movie. Could have some kind of secondary message about politics.
    Anyway, the song fucking rocks.

    General Commentglen Danzig was a fucking genius in the aspect that he mixed horror and horror movies with politics. This is based on the 1968 horror movie, but I think it is used as a metephor for what the motives of alot of people are, like "leaders" or "presidents" or "dictators", all the same, whatever you want to call it. I think he's saying "all i want to know" is why they do it??
