it feels so 80's
or early 90's
to be political
where are my friends

(get off the internet)
i'll meet u in the street
(get off the internet)
destroy the right wing
(get off the internet)
I'll meet u in the street
(get off the internet)
destroy the right wing

this is repetitive
but nothing has changed
and I'm crazy
where are my friends

(get off the internet)
i'll meet u in the street
(get off the internet)
destroy the right wing
(get off the internet)
i'll meet u in the street
(get off the internet)
destroy the right wing

    General CommentI love this song. The lyrics speak for themselves really - Le Tigre want to revieve the early 90s riot grrl political way of thinking ('destroy the right-wing') and have found that, through the numerous e-zines, riotgrrl communties etc on the internet, there are still plenty of girls and women who have that way of thinking.

    So, this song is all about getting those girls back into action and fighting for their rights. I'll join you Kathleen! Hurrah!

    General CommentYes yes zeroglitter that's what Kathleen said it was about. It's about getting back out into the streets, ti's cool that you get into all these things online, but you have to act as well.

    General Commentahh i know this isnt what it is meant to be about, but i constantly think of myspace when i hear this.

    Song MeaningI agree with Kathleen, I want to see feminists doing less blogging and doing more activism on the streets too.

    General CommentIt's so ironic really. I'm listening to a song called "Get Off The Internet" on the internet. And now I'm talking about it on this website for that reason.

    I actually disagree with this song to be honest. It's catchy, but that isn't really what matters. I think the internet is a great way to be political. Social networks, and even more so, blogs, are a form of media. It's a great way to communicate information to the rest of the country, or the rest of the world, really.

    I don't see feminist blogs as a bad thing. Blogs are in a way, just modern day zines, aren't they? A lot more widespread, of course. Most of these bloggers make zines as well. I don't see anything wrong with it!

    Also am I the only one who uses this website? All the comments on here are from, like, 2005. I'm like the only one who comments on here in 2013.
