The Lyrics

He's tuning up on his new B.C. Rich
He over tightens his A string
With a handful of picks in his pocket
His axe makes him feel like a king

He says, "The time has come to kill DJs
Playing hip-hop crap all night
With some drums and a bass and my fist in their face
The rocker's take over tonight

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Save us rocker, you're a guitar man
Play a song we can mosh to
Well, we're all so tired of that disco
Play rock-n-Roll, Metal, or Blues

Tyrone has his records he likes to scratch
His music ability
But now the rockers demanded a live band
So he stays home with his posse
He says, "Why should I play me an instrument?"
I'll just sample all that I need
"Well I'm sure that I could work for Bobbi Brown
If he ever stops beating Whitney

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Now Jen is a bar hopping harlot
Who likes to dance the night away
But now that she's rocking, her boots will be knocking
With a man that practiced all day

And the bassist is practicing his scales
And the lead singer does scales alone
Soon they'll take the stage and play rock n roll
And laugh as the DJs go home

Save us shredder, you're a guitar man
Play a song with a solo
Well, we're all so tired of this bee-bop
Turn it up, tune it down low

It's a moshing up crowd on this Saturday
A manager sees the band go wild
And he knows that it's time, for these boys to sign
People don't want more Destiny's Child
And the guitar, it shines like a new Trans AM
And the people they show no fear
And they raise up a fist through a sweaty fog mist
And yell, "Rock is what we wanna hear!"

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

String axe master, you're a guitar man
Play a song use whammy bar
Well, we're all so tired of that Top 40
Play Slayer, or Sabbath or GWAR

As live musicians, you're preachin' to the choir. Seen your website. We know you play.

I had some doubts, but this parody rocks. My favorite line is defenitely: And they raise up a fist through a sweaty fog mist And yell, ôRock is what we wanna hear!"

I couldn't agree more. To paraphrase a certain Simpsons episode, "Musicians forever, DJ's never !"
