This is the greatest Deerhoof song ever. That is all.

The Fiery Furnaces – Teach Me Sweetheart Lyrics 14 years ago
I love this song so much. I think it's a simple Cinderella story. Pretty girl v wicked step-family. It's written so well though. I love the animal similes for each step-member.

Mad Capsule Markets – Xxx Can Of This Lyrics 15 years ago
It's about cannabis. The XXX and changing the word to "can of this" is a sly wink to the censorship problems they used to face early in their career.

Two years later and still a MCM fan! I remember making that post from a computer lab in London :) Good memories.

Hot Snakes – Let It Come Lyrics 15 years ago
Someone smarter than me, figure out this song! The show-me-state is Missouri - "Buy Cheap / Sell Dear" is an old econimics saying - Cadman Plaza East 225 is a Brooklyn courhouse... I know a lot of the songs on the album are about socialism.. how does this one all come together?

Beck – Devil's Haircut Lyrics 15 years ago
I'm not saying the two share the same meaning definitely, but I always think about "Taxi Driver" when I hear this song. The lyrics sound like describing an awful and dangerous place to live. And I think of Bickle's mohawk, haha. Then he gets all crazy at the end...

Horse the Band – Octopus On Fire Lyrics 15 years ago
Also, best song title ever.

Metric – Soft Rock Star Lyrics 15 years ago
"They never play the ones people's never heard of before" duh, no shit. Why do you want to hear stuff you've never heard before when there are two albums worth of familiar music at their disposal?

Home Grown – Wanna-Be Lyrics 15 years ago
The very monent you started referring to stragers as bitches on the net lets me know you're still in high-school. Trust me, it's a meaningless thing to get wount up about (which the songwriter quite obviously does). Just like talking trash on the internet...

No Use For A Name – Not Your Savior Lyrics 15 years ago
GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL
GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!

The song is about how people hold up songwriters and people in bands as role models. Songs can make you feel better, nostalgic, and articulate what you are thinking; but you shouldn't worship bands. There are more important people out there...

Hot Snakes – Paid In Cigarettes Lyrics 16 years ago
Pay the president in medical waste
Pay to have a (.......?)
Compensate him with good tatse

His spitting distance
He's in spitting range
His hands are yellow, now
Yeah, and his teeth are stained

Cough it up....

Five Iron Frenzy – On Distant Shores Lyrics 16 years ago
I first listened to this album on a long car ride alone knowing nothing about the songs, like not reading the lyrics or anything. Only knowing it was the final album. And when Every New Day kicked in totally catching me off guard, a chill went right through my body. I nearly had to pull the car over. An amazing way to end a band.

Five Iron Frenzy – Car Lyrics 16 years ago
I can't listen to this song, it''s just too sad. Leanor is a great songwriter, in this one, a little too good.

Bloodhound Gang – Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Lyrics 16 years ago
On the website, they admit this is just "The Bad Touch: Part Duex" and as long as they come out and say it, it makes this song much more enjoyable. I used to make fun of "uhn-tiss" style songs all the time, so this brings back memories.

submissions
Bloodhound Gang – I Hope You Die Lyrics 16 years ago
The great thing is this song is directed at no one in particular. (on the website, Jimmy said it was about Mother Teresa) It's just BHG being as offensive as possible for no reason at all. Also, you gotta love Parry Gripp from Nerf Herder helping out on the vocals.

Bloodhound Gang – The Inevitable Return Of The Great White Dope Lyrics 16 years ago
"Like my scrotum here it is in a nutshell"

I've been listening to this song for how long.. six years now? And That line still at least makes me chuckle every time.

Gorillaz – Hip Albatross Lyrics 16 years ago
2D is a hardcore zombie fan. Day of The Dead in M1A1, Dawn in Last Living Souls... Also, if you go to the Gorillaz website and check out 2D's computer in his room, it's all zombied out. Day of The Dead screensaver, and links to George A. Romero and Lucio Fulci websites.

Reel Big Fish – The Set Up (You Need This...) Lyrics 16 years ago
musically... best RBF song ever! I love it. But i'm lyrically, really vauge. I think thats the point though since one of the many faces of RBF is rock n roll satire, and all the best rock songs are quite vauge. Anyway, my take on it (from the verses) is that he is saying he is a total jerk, and people only like him because he's in a cool band.

submissions
Reel Big Fish – Valerie Lyrics 16 years ago
When i saw this band live in 2003, they played this tune and replaced "Valerie" with "Starting Line" (the band who opened). Nothing beats a band and a 100 people all screaming "STARTING LINE... YOUMAKEMEWISHIWASDEAAAAAD!"

Reel Big Fish – Thank You For Not Moshing Lyrics 16 years ago
The second verse is about people who go to shows just to slamdance and mosh, forgetting the real show up on stage. People who think this is the best way to get attention and really be someone; by thrashing around in a crowded area like a 6 year old. In other words, he's saying moshers have no grasp on reality.

The Specials – Ghost Town Lyrics 16 years ago
Also, we should add that is brilliantly kicks off one of the best movies of today "Shaun of The Dead"

Blink-182 – Aliens Exist Lyrics 17 years ago
TravisBarkerNumber2, just follow that link. According to popular conspiracy theories Majestic 12 is a secret underground cult that practically holds all the power in secrets in the world. They keep the population in the dark, thus the line "12 majestic lies"

Hot Hot Heat – Touch You Touch You Lyrics 17 years ago
If this song didn't have this title would we still think it's about sex. Looks like there is more to it. A song about songwriting, creating things? I don't know.

Hot Hot Heat – Talk To Me, Dance With Me Lyrics 17 years ago
Sounds like he met the perfect girl, but is paranoid about who she really may be.

submissions
Hot Hot Heat – Bandages Lyrics 17 years ago
another song about insecurity and masking your true feelings. He sings about what keeps him from this girl who obviously rejects him. So he runs from the problem by getting drunk and getting back at her in his own mind with not-so-well-wishes.

submissions
Hot Hot Heat – Oh, Goddamnit Lyrics 17 years ago
The character in this song is talking about how a night of bar hopping and failure after failure with each girl he talks to has left him frustrated, dizzy, broke, and angry. I love how HHH's music is so blatantly sexy, yet, just about every song on "Make Up..." is about insecurity and social disaster. The nonsensical jammering of the lyrics and stuttering delivery also help drive the theme of the song home.

submissions
The Mars Volta – Miranda, That Ghost Just Isn't Holy Anymore Lyrics 17 years ago
Actually Cedric and Omar said they recorded sober. And that still doesn't take away anything from what I said. This band isn't just your stupid jam band you use as an excuse to get high and talk about it later thinking you're so awesome the whole time, it's art. Go watch Super Troopers if you're gonna do that stupid shit, or grow up.

submissions
The Mars Volta – Miranda, That Ghost Just Isn't Holy Anymore Lyrics 17 years ago
Yes, PoisonTheWells. You are the ONLY person who gets high and listens to The Mars Volta. Drugs and music?? What a crazy and original combination! Good thing we have radical thinkers like you around to show that the world has a bright future. You know whats even "sicker"? The fact that the drama and emotion in these very songs that you are "rolling or tripping or whatever" to revolve around the tragedy of drug abuse; the same demon that took the life of one of their band members.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists – The Angels' Share Lyrics 17 years ago
I agree 100% The album version tries to mess with the formula too much by bringing the melodies in and out. It's a pretty simple song and the album version tries to make it into something more. The demo just charges in harder and harder keeps building, so damn cool. The driving force in the demo works better with the claustrophobic lyrics.

Five Iron Frenzy – Day We Killed, The Lyrics 17 years ago
It's crazy to think our two presidential candidates were making eachother out to be complete scumbags last year for not fighting in Vietnam; and years ago Anderw Jackson, became President despite being a brutal indian killing machine. Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee really is a wild book.

Five Iron Frenzy – Juggernaut Lyrics 17 years ago
This is why FiF was so great, they can write powerful Christain songs without coming off as preachy (although some people you can never please). You don't have to be a certian religion, age, social state, to feel the courage and optimisim in this one.

Five Iron Frenzy – It's So Hot (I'm Gonna Have A Heat Stroke) Lyrics 17 years ago
Going into the title i knew this would be the most amazing FiF song ever made.

Just a little trivia for those that don't have "The Youth of America...", Reese kicks off "All That Is Good" by saying "This song is called... It's so hot I'm gonna have a heat stroke." and well, the rest is history...

Five Iron Frenzy – Pre Ex-girlfriend Lyrics 17 years ago
I'm jealous of anyone who got to hear this one live (along with All The Hype). Such a fun song. The best i got was that it was included in the "leftover FiF song blender" they did on the farewell tour.

every single line in this song is brilliant. It's realistic, silly, honest, optimistic, and catchy all at once.
