If you work hard
You'll succeed
A starring role
On Nothing Incorporated

Reject All American
Reject All American
Reject All American
Reject All American

Gets good grades
And plays guitar
He's all the rage on
Nothing Incorporated

Gets good grades
And plays guitar
Thinks he's cool but really is not

    General CommentI think this is about rejecting the all-american type of lifestyle, which is represented by this boy. He just plays by the rules (if you work hard, you'll succeed). But all you really get is a starring role on "Nothing Incorporated" which just means a totally boring type of life. This dude obviously has an inflated ego, possibly from getting praise for doing what he's told. "Regimented, Designated, Mass Acceptance, Over Rated", refers to how most people do not question the "All-American Lifestyle", they just follow someone else's dreams. Lip synch, just meaning totally soulless, not being authentic. "Apology, Salutation, Teen Anthem, Obligation" is probably his boring style of rock music delivered half-heartedly or just cliché styled.

    The definition of mausoleum means "a burial place for the bodies or remains of many individuals". I think the mausoleum holds the individuality that gets killed with the acceptance of popular culture. This song calls for a rejection of that all-american way of life.


    I think the slogan "Reject All-American" can be compared to "Kill Whitey".

    REJECT
    ALL-AMERICAN!

    General CommentThis is so apt for now...all we get pushed in our face by the media are rich whiteboys who have formed different variations of rock bands which are all equally lame...which is what this song is about.
