Cream – White Room Lyrics 13 years ago
Pete Brown, who was the lyricist for the band, wrote this song with Jack Bruce about a time when he was high at a train station. It's a kinda stream of consioussnes song where he's just writing about what he sees while he is fucked up out of his mind waiting for a train.

Bad Religion – American Jesus Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is about a comment George H.W. Bush (AKA Bush senior) made about the Gulf war. I belive he said something about how America would win any conflict in the middle east because "we have Jesus on our side." Basically, its about how arrogant Americans are and how arrogant Christians are. He killed two birds with one stone: Bash our fucked up society and Organized Religion at the same time. And THAT is y this is one of the all-time greatest songs.

The Offspring – Get It Right Lyrics 14 years ago
I have started to really like this song recently, cus i can relate to it easily. In fact, I think its easy for almost anybody to relate to this song. Everybody has felt at some point that they cant do anything right and everything they touch turns to crap. Theres this girl I REALLY like right now and she knows it. We used to be BFFs and i could tell er anything. Now, just one look at her and my mouth stops working. i feel like everything i say is wrong. Fuck, i hate love it sucks:P

The Offspring – Amazed Lyrics 14 years ago
IXNAY FUCKING RULES!!!!!!!!! The Offspring rule in general, but Ixnay may be my second all time favorite album, Behind Green Day's Insomniac. Thats quite an accomplishment, since ive probably heard close to 100 albums in their entirety. The only explaination i see to why it didnt do well in the first place was that it was so radically different from Smash. PPl expected them to come out with another smash the same way that ppl expected GD to come out with another Dookie. Also, switching to a major record label didnt help. All their punk purist fans were pissed about it.

Anyway, this is a great song. i like the seriousness to it, the emotion, the angst. There are no bad songs on Ixnay, but this is one of the Upper echeleon songs on the album.

The Offspring – All I Want Lyrics 14 years ago
Ixnay is one of the best albums ever, and this song is one of the many that make it amazing. Fast, Hard, defiant, Loud. Thats what Punk Rock is about and thats what this song is. It's not even my 3rd favorite song on the Album, and i'd still rate it a 95/100. A great song on an Unbelievable album. I don't know y ppl dont like Ixnay...

The Offspring – Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) Lyrics 14 years ago
THIS SONG SO DOES NOT SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a poke at the middle-Upper class white kids, who have never been in the ghetto in their whole fucking lives, but think that listening to rap music and wearing "Ice" makes them tough. Me, I know I'm white, and I am not gonna try to act like I'm black to seem "cool". i'm not gonna listen to rap, cus rap is shit and not real music. Im gonna stay at home, play video games, and listen to rock music. If you are black, and you like rap music, fine. if you are white, and you like rap music, fine. If you are Black and you like rock music, fine. But if you don't like rap, don't listen to it and act the style just to fit in or to make yourself feel tough. be who you are. Rock On!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AFI – Love Like Winter Lyrics 14 years ago
December Underground is a place where the lonely can find love and compainionship. This is about 2 seperate ppl who have had lonely lives, and then when they meet in this "place", they fall in love. The song is sung in first person, but not from a person.Decemberunderground, the "time and place" as davey put it, is singing this song. The first line introduces the ppl into decemberunderground, kind of welcomes them in. Beautiful song, one of my favs on the album. Miss Murder is better tho.

AFI – The Interview Lyrics 14 years ago
My Interpretation of the whole album, based a certain quote from Davey havok, is that decemberunderground is a place where ppl who are cold and lonely can go to find love and companionship. This song, to me, is about just that, a person who is lonely, and then someone in his life comes and takes him to this "place" where he can find companionship. beautiful song on a beautiful album, but not the best. good, but not best.

The Offspring – Smash Lyrics 14 years ago
They Didn't sell out, jut like green day didnt sell out. They still make the music for themselves, not for others, and just cus they got popular doesnt mean they sold out. I hate ppl who say that Offspring and Green Day sold out. Selling out is when a band stops playing the music THEY want to play and start playing music MUSIC INDUSTRIES want them to play. If they r still making music that they want to make, despite what the "Style" is or the genre, they aren't sellouts. Remember that being in a band is their JOB!!!!!! This is how they earn their living, they have every right to make money off of it. As far as "popularity" goes, they didnt ask to bedcome popular, and when they did, all that it did was spread their influence, which is a good thing cus the world would be a better place if ppl read some Offspring and Green day lyrics.

Long Live Green Day and the 'Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Offspring – Self Esteem Lyrics 14 years ago
La-La-LA-LA,La-La-LA-LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Easily the best part of the song! 8p
I don't think this song applies ONLY to girls. Guys use chicks too. However, men are generally more sex driven, so its easier for a girl to manipulate a guy with sex then the other way around. Most guys wont turn down a chance to screw a hot chick.( i kno I Wouldn't in a million years;D)

Also, girls who KNOW they are hot do tend to use that as an advantage over us guys. Most girls expect their boyfriends to buy them shit and take them out to places. And in return, we get laid, which isn't exactly a fair trade, cus im sure the girls dont mind the sex TOO much, if u kno what im saying. basically, the girls get stuff and sex. The guys get sex and an empty wallet.

Now that ive rambled on for 10 minutes now, i would just like to say, despite all this, I LOVE GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Green Day – Geek Stink Breath Lyrics 14 years ago
Insomniac is the Best GD album w/0 a doubt. Their songs started to have more serious meanings, their lyrics got deeper, and so on. They basically got more mature than on Dookie (Dont get me wrong Dookie is still a great album, but its their third best, Insomniac and AI are better.)

Green Day – Stuart and the Ave. Lyrics 14 years ago
I think this song is about a girl Billie thought was hot. But when he started dating her, she was a bitchy, materialistic, self centered brat who knew she was hot and thought she could use her looks to get what she wanted. Unfortunately for us guys, alot of girls are like that. Anyway, Billie wasnt stupid enough to stay with a chick who was just gonna waste his time and money. so he dumped her. Smart move.

Green Day – Having a Blast Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is about the quiet kid who ppl pick on, and then one day they get fed up with it and blow up their school. Just like Columbine. I don't think its about Billie Joe personally, cus he doesnt seem like the kid who was picked on in HS (He was the starting Quarterback for his football team).

"Im taking all you down with me"
Hes gonna commit suicide, but hes not gonna let those bastards who picked on him get off that easy, they r coming down with him.

"Theres nothing left for u to say, soon you'll be dead anyway"
Hes not gonna listen to their begging or pleading. It doesnt matter to him cus soon he will be dead and so will they.

"Close your eyes, kiss yourself goodbye, and think about the times we spent and what they ment; to me its nothing"

Basically, as you r about to die, remember all the good times u had picking on me.

Fucking awesome song, I put it on repeat on my iPod and played Bomberman for super Nintendo lol XD

Green Day – Jackass Lyrics 14 years ago
I only started listening to punk rock recently. I was always a classic rock guy, mostly floyd and zep and shit. They i heard Boulevard of Broken Dreams off of Amercan Idiot and loved it. Now, Green Day may be my fav band of all time. As for Blink, only ever heard one of their songs up to this point, and thats All the Small Things (Which I've heard is abut penises lol). I really cant tell u who is better cus i haven't heard Blink.

I do believe that GD may not care for Blinks style in music. Gd was trying to act more mature at that point and from what ive heard blink has always been kind of stupid humor type, which is ok but the opposite of what GD was trying at the time.

GD rocks. Go Brain Stew

Green Day – Brain Stew Lyrics 14 years ago
I origionally thought this song was about Meth. It still could be, but it could be about insomnia. Billie has some kind of panic disorder that could cause Insomnia. also, i have heard the "kid kept him up late theory"

Either way, it doesnt matter. this is still my favorite GD song, ahaed of Boulevard of Broken Dreams by a little bit. Kick ass song.

Green Day – When I Come Around Lyrics 14 years ago
My second favorite green day song, behind Boulevard. I would like topoint out a mistake in the lyrics: "I'm a loser and a user so I don't need no accuser
to try and slag me down because I know I'm right" should be "I'm a loser and a user so I don't need no accuser
to try and slag me down because I know YOU'RE right"

This song is about a fight that Billie had with Adrienne, and how he's telling her he just needs some space but he'll be back eventually.

Jethro Tull – With You There To Help Me Lyrics 14 years ago
btw, this song is a love song for his then girlfriend, soon to be wife, and then ex-wife, Jenny. It shows how tiring his touring is, but how the thought of being with her in the end gives him the strength to keep going. And in the end, when he is with her, she helps forget all the pressure and the fatigue of his time on the road.

Jethro Tull – My God Lyrics 14 years ago
Ian always introduced this song as "A blues for the man upstairs". Its very pro-god, but it criticized the corrupt organized religeon that fixes his image in a way that believing anything else is impossible. people can't formulate thier own opinions about god because they are brought up in thier specific religeon and are taught that "this is the way it is, no ifs, ands, or buts. If you don't agree, you are wrong, and you are going to be nice and warm in hell for all eternity." Ian felt that god was inside of all of us, and we should communicate with Him how we see fit, not how the church tells us.

Kick ass song, second best flute work in any of their songs behind the solo in Locomotive Breath. This one may even be better. Ian plays the flute so well, that I wish i had known about them about 6 years ago when i had a chance to learn an instrument in grade school.

Just a tinny little fact, Ian only learned how to play the flute 6 months before the bands 1st album came out.

Jethro Tull – Fat Man Lyrics 14 years ago
btw, this song was how Ian got revenge on Mick Abrahams. Mick was a member of the band on their first album. he was a blues purist, but Ian wanted to try other forms of music (Rock, Folk, and electric). Mick also didn't get along with Clive Bunker, and left the band after the album. Ian was pissed off beyond belief, and wrote this song, cus Mick was a little on the hefty side.

P.S. the guy who replaced him was Martin Barre, who now has the second lingest tenure of any member Beside Ian. He is one of my favorite guitarists of all time, along with Jimmy Page and David Gilmour. Anybody who disagrees can F*** me sideways:b

Jethro Tull – Bungle In The Jungle Lyrics 14 years ago
About the gay thing:
Anybody who thinks that Jethro Tull is actually the name of a band member has no credibility in my opinion. Jethro Tull was an English farmer, pioneer, and an inventor. He invented the seed drill, which helped farmers immensly. When the band was starting out, they weren't very popular, because their music wasn't exactly mainstream. They had problems getting rebookings, so they changed thier name often to fool the owners of clubs. they got suggestions from their various managers, and one was a history buff who suggested "Jethro Tull". that night, the owner of the bar they were playing actually liked them, and rebooked them. Since it was the first time they got a rebooking, they kept that name!

There is no way this song is a bout homosexuallity. I love J-Tull and the War Child album. I have listened to BITJ many times, and know the lyrics by heart. No evidence shows any signs of being about either homosexuallity or Jesus.

But what does tps know anyway?

Jethro Tull – Thick as a Brick (Parts 1 & 2) Lyrics 14 years ago
Thick as a Brick is THE MOST BRILLIANTLY THOUGHT UP ALBUM EVER. Other than Ian Anderson, no one would ever try to make an entire album one song. And what makes it even better is that he did it TWICE, and both albums went to number one in the U.S. and that wasn't even where he was the most popular.

Lyrically, Thick as a Brick is the most brilliant song of all time. It criticizes society and how it conforms youngsters to it's evil ways, making them essentially parts of the machine. Society is full of conformists, and Ian hates that. Thats why his music is so ecllectic. He never wanted to sound like any other band.

If you listen to the song, the changes in pattern over the song, while necessary to keep it from being boring, make getting the meaning difficult. but if you read the lyrics, they become clearer. The trick is to pick out the metaphors.

DON'T try to read this song as a story. There is an interior story involved, but is not the main theme. It just stresses the theme.

"Thick as a Brick" is a British slang for stupidity, or more precisely, an inability to retain information. When a person is "Thick", it is referring to their skull. A thick skull prevents anything from penetrating into a brain. Therefore, someone who is thick doesn't learn well. All the information just bounces right off of them. It is NOT a compliment. In fact, it's a pretty mean thing to say to someone.

To Be Continued...

Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here Lyrics 14 years ago
Ok, So Final cut was a concept album. I'm sorry, but i have only ever listened to one song on the album and thats Fletcher Memorial Home. It's an OK song. Doesn't make me want to listen to the rest of the album.

Anyway, I agree that the reason this song is so beautiful is because of the simplicit. I listen to Zeppelin, their hard complax riffs, and then i listen to floyd, and its a completely different feel. They take something that sounds so simple, and make it beautiful. Especially in this song and shine on. In shine on, Waters' vocals almost sound like he is crying. WYWH is the same thing. You can feel the emotion that Gilmour puts out, even though the lyrics were written by Roger. Best Rock Album EVER!!!!!
