NOFX – The Decline Lyrics 16 years ago
Kids, kids... a few words...
You oughtn't bash a kid because he watches MTV. Let's face it, that's how most people hear music and find out about bands these days. They go from hearing Carson Daly feeding them "Blink 182 is the punkiest punk band ever!" to downloading songs on the internet and checking out forums like this one. That's how people can find out about bands outside the sphere of the "MTV music scene." If someone says something you think is dumb or asks a question you think is dumb, set them straight minus the "you fags" and "stupids." I doubt even the most hardcore punk fans out there went straight from the womb to a mosh pit at a hardcore show. Let the kids learn about what it is to be punk without having to put up with a lot of crap from a few idealists who claim to be the end-all be-all of punk-related knowledge.

Yellowcard – Rock Star Land Lyrics 16 years ago
I love the "Somewhere Out There" sample- some of us kids from the 80's can remember "Fievel," I'm sure. I can't wait to see them with Less Than Jake, Whippersnapper, and Sugarcult!

Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven Lyrics 16 years ago
We interpreted this song in my senior English class, and what I took from it is "the lady who's sure" has based her life on the material things. When she's on her way to heaven, she doesn't believe the signs that say she can't get in once she reaches the gates because her life lacks a spiritual base. That's why her stairway is unstable/false and lies on a foundation of "whispering wind." Throughout the song, the lady's experience is paralleled to the band's reflection on what they've done in life and wondering if they'll one day end up on a similar stairway. (Hence, "there's a feeling I get when I look to the west, and my spirit is crying for leaving"- they fear they've left their spiritual path to travel down a road of materialism.) At first they believe they can simply change their fate and walk down the right path when they need to, but as their shadows grow long, they realize they may have been too late. This was the first Led Zeppelin song I ever heard and I've been a fan ever since.
