The Lyrics

Here it is.
They say it takes a lot to fix a faulty line
In every parts, there pumps an electric heat
But if it shift those problems into overtime,
Well, it could generate a lot of heat
It's error 404
Oh no, it's error 404

You're gonna have a little small charade
Before you know it monitor got slayed
You've gotta fix it all up fast and sweet
It's error 404

Oh no!

(Instrumental Interlude)

It's error 404
(repeat and fade out)
I'll make another one

How dare you to critisize alice cooper!!! I know you pissed off millions of his fans. Maybe this isn't the right comment place to leave a message.. I hate your website and never will I come back to it. Alice is the king of rock and always be the God of legend.. one of my Cooper friends gave me this address and man she was so pissed off likeI I am. Maybe Alice is different but look where he's out now. He started the whole trend of great music..... Your site sucks BIG time!! So think about what you say about anybody or you won't have anyone visit your so called website!!!

I'll go and parody Alice Cooper's song for killing someone over a chair.

Not a big fan of this Billy Joel song, although I am a big fan of Billy's other works. Short and sweet though Max and I understood it that's the important thing.

I like the 404 parody idea for the site and I'm glad to see that you are a contributer to that idea. This is short and sweet but says it all. 404 + 151 = 555.

To get this out of the way: "carla's" comment gets the all time "WTF were you thinking when you typed that?" award ever.

Onto the parody, I didn't really get how the content applied to 404 errors, and rhyming the last two lines of the two verses might have garnered better marks from me.

(ABC4) Ooooookay, someone forgot their meds today (carla, not you Max). Kinda short, and the opening lines confused me, but this was pretty good.

Short and sweet. Nice song for the songs not found.

(ABC) Cute little piece of work that serves its 404 purpose. The "monitor" line was funny. I didn't find much meaning in quite a few of the lines; isn't a 404 error due to a webpage removed or a mistyped URL, not to a technical error or power failure? Oh, well: maybe there's something I don't know about the computer world. (There's a lot I don't know about the computer world!) Anyway, I won't give you a 4-0-4; how about a 5-4-4?

I had to listen to a different link than the one Matty provided, the quality of the one Matty linked to gave me a headache, it paced well . . .it's kinda short. . .but it paced well ;)
