The Lyrics

A parody with a message. Think GC's punk? Contemplate these lyrics.
its a good life, when we're makin gold
and all us bands are, cut from the same mold
and all the fans are buyin 15 dollar spike bracelets

who the hell are, the Dead Kennedys
be a real punk, thats what they said to me
our haircuts suck isnt that original enough

Sum 41 and Simple Plan, we're just like them
would you believe we're just another trend
we're totally incapable of dissent

but we sell tons of records
to young and hopeless fans like you
pop zombies just like you

PG lyrics, pop videos
we can't throw bricks, at money-grubbing schmos
who cares about politics when you can ride black bikes


this is the anthem
if youre a fan then
get your Visa ready
cuz our next victims gonna be you
we're pop zombies just like you.

I think it's pretty funny. It basically just states the truth.
