The Lyrics

I submitted this yesterday, and though, I was happy with most of it, reading it again, I see two lines I don't like, so I just wanted to correct them.
Woohoohoo!
Woohoohoo!

Brandi just hit the wall, but she used to have it all
Two Zoloft's a day, her husband's broke and gay
Her dreams went out the door, when she turned 24
Only been with 8 men, what happened to her plans?
She was gonna be a goth chick, she was gonna be a star
She was gonna ride around in Billy Corgan's car
She has no SUV, just a Nova '83
Looks at her sucky life and nothing has been alrite, since

The Offspring, Gin Blossoms, still sad about Nirvana
but there was Green Day, and Courtney, and Beavis still on MTV
Her two kids in grade school, they cry, they puke and they drool
but she was really alive in 19, 19, 1995

Woohoohoo!
1995
Woohoohoo!

She knows all the classics, she has seen them all
'Forrest Gump' and 'Clueless', even that 'Son-in-Law'
She rocked to STP, she'd like to kill Britney
thought she'd get a hand on Marilyn or Shirley Manson
Where's the cool shirts, made of flannel, and what's this Teen Pop? F**kin' change the channel!
Real World and Road Rules were the best Real TV
Whatever happened to sitcoms (Friends), game shows (Singled Out), on the radio...

There was Offspring, Gin Blossoms, still worshiping Nirvana
and there was Green Day, and Courtney, and Beavis still on MTV
Her two kids in grade school, they cry, they puke and they drool
but she was really alive in 19, 19, 1995

Woohoohoo!

She hates time, make it stop
When did Pearl Jam become classic rock?
And when did Alanis become an actress?
Please, make this stop! Stop! Stop!
And bring back

The Offspring, Gin Blossoms, she'll always love Nirvana
at least, there's Green Day, but no Courtney, and no Beavis on her MTV
Her two kids in grade school, they cry, they puke and they drool
but she was really alive in 19, 19, 1995

While I don't care much for TOS, I really like how it's become a way for Amirighters to create "time-capsule" songs like this one. And bonus points for mentioning STP.
