The Lyrics

How many of you remember Lars Ulrich testifying before a Committee regarding folks downloading Metallica music? Yea, he taught those Napster users a lesson by having them banned...it worked for about fifteen minutes. If the band had been smarter, they would have followed the production trail and see where most of the money went. It was the record execs ripping you off. Lars; the users knew this even if you didn't. CD prices jumped to as much as four times the cost versus an LP Record and in a lot of cases, the quality didn't improve by much and you no longer had the option of buying only on song. Anyways, the adverse publicity given to Napster was still publicity and even though Napster caved, torrents are still going strong. I watched the video for Metallica's cover of this song and all that they did in the video was trash a house. I was thinking...What exactly is he point here? Parody based on The Dubliners version of song.
We're no longer Trending!

(Sung to Whiskey in the Jar - Irish Traditional)

There was a band Metallica; in modern day they stopped and wondered
They had beaten the Evil Napster but had they really blundered?
Said Lars after he smoked one he saw the p2p Abusers,,,
They are stealing all our songs, we must stop those evil users!!!

D D D Doh a Dipshit uh duh
Smart move, good way to go, smart move, now we're dodos!
And we're no longer Trending!

Metallica in confusion, went to the record producers...
He said "Don't mind my pile of money; if there's guilty, I'll produce 'er!"
That's why there's business managers, to cut down on the deceiving...
But they stood with their Producer and his bullshit they were believing!

Der Der Der Duh Duh Stupid Dumbf**k...
Yea Lars, the way to go! Yea Lars, the way to go!
And you're no longer trending...

The band first whined in public, then to a Judiciary Committee....
Ban these half million users 'cause their thieving sure is shitty!
The massive ban was bypassed (yet even more blundering)
the half mill pissed off users said "Tis Metallica I'm a plundering!"

D D D What is our encore now?
FInd someone else to sue! Find someone else to sue!
Since we're no longer trending!


While Napster caved to the onslaught, P2P emerged quite strong...
It appeared the massive publicity was what was needed all along
While FTpz were still humming, Torrents quickly sprouted....
Think of that next time that you want some users outed!!

Metallicoids duh duh D D D Der
We'll talk to GMA! We might get to play Monday
Since We're no longer trending!

Now there should be a lesson learned here; if I haven't made myself quite clear....
The record company ripped you off not the user, dipshit, see here!!
but we take delight when we are targeted by musicians...
We'll download their work until our finger breaks and then see a physician!!!

Filthy Greed of the Executive...
Raise Prices! Rake in the dough! Raise Prices! Rake in the dough!
is that why we're not Trending....

Its mid 2013 now and P2P is still the sensation!
As we fill up drives and Blu-Rays until the Day of Damnation
As Dowdy approaches us with a foul brimstone smell....
WE WILL be the masters here because we have already downloaded Hell!!!!

Metal ring on the side of your head...
Good Try! The way to go! You will fall like a domino..
Because you're no longer trending.....
