The Lyrics

Oh, I look back to when we started our teens
We read our first dirty magazine
It was a male footballer, only exposed his chest
But hey who cares we thought life was a cool test

That was in the good old days of Simon Le Bon
Now our kids are worshipping Sum 41
How can four pre-pubescent dicks
Rule the earth with teenybop hits?

Sing along
To this song
It declares that punk rock's dead
If you like
These nu-punk bands
You must be deaf, or a smack head

Blink should have been ace, well they once was
Before they wrote some tracks about fondling your dog
Good Charlotte's songs are good for kindergarten
But then again they sound worse than Barney's fartin'

NOFX throw baby fits about George Bush
Green Day sound like a dying thrush
Avril Lavigne's the scene! If you're 13
What happened to breaking down AUTHORITY?

The Offspring
They now ming
Become another identikit band
Sing along
To this song
The nearest mental health clinic is that way...

Well, I respect your opinion about how you think punk is dead. But let me just tell you a few things. One, Avril Lavigne is not punk, and not even close to resembling it. Two, at least these punk bands can rhyme better than you. Three, if you don't like punk, why did you use the Offspring's song? Hmm......

Bob is right. More importantly, Sum 41 is awesome Blink 182 ispired No Fault Syndome and Greenday is just a sweet band who's lyrics don't often make sense.
