Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

the rows of hippies spin and rock
they're trippin' off their hides
and they sing through droolin' mouths
this crowd is so damn high
this band started long ago
they couldn't really play
and now its kinda funny
all those years on the stage
things ain't changed in any way

and...
drugs are needed for this band
it would kill you if you found out
they were not so grand
you can't call this rock 'n' roll
if you're a music fan
and that guitar player's horrid
even worse, his clan
drugs are needed for this band

i wonder if you changed things
and turned a leaf, brand new
and really heard what had transpired
i think you'd say PU
its so stupid, all these hippie-style lines
its really sappy now
the singer's got no range
turn down that bass, squirrel
they really suck and how

and...
drugs are needed for this band
it would kill you if you found out
they were not so grand
you can't call this rock 'n' roll
if you're a music fan
and that guitar player's horrid
even worse, his clan
drugs are needed for this band

Evokes the old joke: What did the Deadhead say when the drugs cleared out of his system? "This band really sucks!"
