"Shopping Spree" as written by and John Powell....
Yeah, well I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah

Flagstaff, Arizona
It's been two weeks on the road with Sean na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
One day before we did play
We penned a song by us, for us
We didn't have the verse but we had the chorus:

Yeah, well I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah

After the show, there's nowhere to go
Everywhere's packed with white baseball hat frat boys
So we end up at this empty place
Got a flaming doc
The Dali Llamas were the band scheduled to rock
Benny Na Na looks at me
I think I hear what he's saying
"Atom, do you hear what they're playing?"
They're going shopping

Yeah, well I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah

Shopping spree (x4)
So Dali Llamas...whatever
Spelled Salvador Dali and the animal, how clever
You have a five string fretless bass
You stole our song, now we rock your face

I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah
Yeah

    General Commentthis song is about a band that atom and his friends went on tour with shanana. they were playing a show with another band called the dali llamas. and the dali llamas, were terrible, but they had one song that was really catchy. it went"i cant take it no more, cuz im going on a shopping spree." so atom and his friends went and danced for it, and then they started cheering "shopping spree! shopping spree!" untill they played the song again. so they played the song again, and again, atom and his friends cheered so they would play it one more time. they ended up playing the song 5 times. then atom decided he would do the song shopping spree, but he would make it about how the dali llamas stole his song. so thats how this song came about, if you see him live, he will tell the story, or you can just download the live version of this song.

    General CommentI had no idea who Atom was up until recently. I was going to a Mindless Self Indulgence concert, and he happened to be one of the opening acts, and i loved his stuff so much I bought 4 cds right after his set ended. Atom is my hero, not just because he writes awesome songs, but also because he uses my catch phrase, "Rock your Face" in this song.

    General CommentGreat song and a hilarious back story. Har Mar Superstar does a version of this song too. It's on a split 7" with Atom where they both do the song.
